It’s been more than a year since Node-RED was contributed as an open-source project to the JS Foundation. Since then, there’s been staggering growth and a surge in use cases. In this meetup, you’ll hear from Node-RED creator Nick O’Leary about the latest with the project and where it’s heading.

You’ll also hear about many of the amazing projects—IoT, chatbots, natural-language analysis—that are leveraging Node-RED’s power.
