The newest Node.js conference from your friends at EmpireJS

EmpireNode is a community-run single-day, single-track format with a twist — taking place at Location 05 in NYC on October 27th, 2014. The morning will be action-packed 20-25 minute talks covering the range of all things Node.js. The afternoon fun times are centered around a number of Node.js workshops presented by teams of awesome instructors. It's all Node everything!

We are an inclusive, kind community that is constantly growing. We ask that you 'don't be a yutz', and try and make our fellow Empire friends feel welcome! Diversity of voices is important to our community, and we are serious when we say EVERYONE AND ANYONE should attend and participate.

Three Incredible Workshops
