Redesigning Nodejs.org - Adam Miller, LinkedIn & Manil Chowdhury, InVision
The Node.js website has not had a significant content and Information Architecture (IA) update since early 2014, and a lot has changed since then! Design trends have shifted, the competitive landscape has become more crowded, and the Node.js project has achieved new heights in the developer community. The world runs on Node.js, and the Website Redesign initiative has been working hard to ensure the condition of its public image matches the quality of its code.

N-API Birds of a Feather - Arunesh Chandra, Microsoft; Michael Dawson, IBM; Nicola Del Gobbo, Packly & Gabriel Schulhof, Intel of Canada, Ltd.
Are you working on a Node native add-on using N-API? Or maybe thinking of starting one? This is a great opportunity to consult with the team behind this compelling new technology and to discuss experiences with fellow N-API add-on developers. Ask questions, make suggestions, and learn how you can help shape the future of N-API.

Bring your project and N-API team members will be available to help answer questions, make suggestions, and offer tips. If you don’t have a project, team members can answer your questions and help make sure you get off to a solid start.

This is also a great chance for N-API add-on developers to share experiences, lessons, and best practices with fellow N-API add-on developers.

If you’re interested, please join us!

Effectively Leverage nodejs/help Repo - Gireesh Punathil, IBM
While the issue tracker in nodejs/node repo covers identified bugs in the core, nodejs/help is where users can raise issues in all other categories: asking questions, general help with usage of node, debugging and resolving a problem etc. I would like to talk about how to effectively make use of this repo and share some best practices, for improved user experience on consumption of Node.js

Bringing User Feedback to Node.js - Dan Shaw, D Shaw LLC
"Over the past year a team of individuals have been working with the Node.js Community Committee to provide better opportunities to the Node.js community to connect with the Node.js project and provide feedback. The groups started by supporting the needs of the Benchmarking WG, helping create a formal survey and sharing the results. Now there are several focus areas and area leaders covering general user scenarios, tooling developers, and the enterprise use case. We are preparing another major survey for community feedback around Promises. We'll share what's worked and what has not and how you can get involved."

Building Foundations of the Node.js Community - Tierney Cyren, NodeSource
Node.js is an amazing project in terms of code - it’s evolved rapidly to cover an immense landscape, from web apps, desktop apps, APIs, IoT, robotics, and beyond. There’s something else that Node has also been absolutely killer with, though: the community.

One really awesome thing is that the Node.js community has an established community for building the Node community. How meta is that? The Node.js project is sectioned off into different Working Groups (WGs) that are tasked with different objectives - the one that was tasked with building the community was the Evangelism WG.

That said, there’s a transition happening. The Evangelism WG planted the seed Node.js Community efforts. Now, the Community Committee has taken this a step further and is mobilizing to start exploding the awareness and understanding of Node and its diverse ecosystem.

Attendees will gain an understanding of what the Node.js Community Committee is, what it's goals are, and how they can start getting involved.

Node.js Error Handling Done Right - Ruben Bridgewater, NearForm
It’s weekend and you are out at a lake with your family. You get a call from your boss that the application is down and the customers complain all over. You hurry home to fix the issue right away but you can’t find it and decide to revert to the last working state. Later you spend half your sprint searching and fixing the problem.

We all have run into issues like this before and our logs did not provide enough information to figure out what the problem is about. You saw a lot of errors but some had no stack trace and if they did, they were often useless because of the asynchronous JS nature hiding the actual call site.

But why all this pain when our life could be peaceful by using best practices in error handling? This is a journey into the asynchronous debugging horrors and the simplicity that async / await in combination with error classes can bring into that world.
