Workshop: Node.js Help Alive! - Gireesh Punathil, IBM & Anna Henningsen, NearForm (Limited Seating; First-come, First-Served Basis)
You may have used the Node.js help repo to ask questions and get help from any one of the great collaborators who regularly contribute there. This workshop takes that a step further. Come get help in a live format where we'll hold a Node.js clinic as an open platform for developers using Node.js to seek resolutions for issues they are facing in their node projects. We will bring in experienced developers of the Node.js open source community (some of the same ones who contribute answers in the Node.js help repo), who will review your issues and provide recommendations to resolve them, on site at the workshop. You can bring any issue, ranging from common questions on programming semantics to production anomalies, and from deployment specific tunables to architectural considerations.

Next Generation N-API: A Hands-on Workshop - Nicola Del Gobbo, Packly & Jim Schlight, Inspiredware (Limited Seating; First-come, First-Served Basis)
Tooling for Node native add-on development continues to rapidly evolve. After widespread adoption of N-API last year, the Node native add-on ecosystem is gaining momentum as the underlying technology advances.

This workshop describes important new features critical to the performance of your native add-on. These features include asynchronous operations which permit you to safely and reliably spread your work across multiple threads. Context awareness permits your add-on to be loaded multiple times without the copies interfering with each other. Finally, adopting thread-safe functions insures your functions run reliably regardless of the thread from which they are called or in which they run.

Bring your project or work through the workshop tutorials under the helpful guidance of the N-API experts. You’ll leave this workshop with a solid understanding of these important new technologies.
