Introducing Node.js v12 + Live Node.js Community Feedback
- with dshaw & James Snell

The next major version of Node.js was released on April 23rd. The Current release cycle will evolve and get patched through October when v12 will become the new LTS (Long-Term Support) version. James Snell will go through an overview of what’s new in the version 12 release. Then, Dan Shaw will lead an interactive feedback session to help core team members get a better understanding of how major releases impact application development and upgrade cycles.

Chronos - An Event Data Capturing System for Greenfield Applications

In our digital world a lot of real-time activity now happens in the web space. This activity can be analyzed and provide useful insights for making the right decisions and creating efficient strategies for the future at early stages of application development. There are a lot of existing analytics solutions, however their setup and use might not be well suited for greenfield applications.
In this talk I will introduce you to Chronos project and existing solutions for real-time analytics. You’ll learn about event data and technologies we used to make a process of setting up and using analytics easy for a greenfield developer.
