Engineering the future of awesome on ANY device

Learn how leading technology companies are thinking about the future of coding and deployment. Today, users want online or mobile experiences that will be customized ‘for me’. For engineers, these types of experiences can be built once and deployed across multiple platforms faster than ever. Alex Balazs, Chief Architect for Intuit TurboTax, the U.S.’s leading online tax service, will moderate a panel featuring Jeff Harrell, director of engineering at PayPal and Dan Shaw, co-founder of NodeSource, a .js software company. This panel will discuss future of coding and what Node.js means for engineers who want to build and deliver optimized, platform-agnostic user experiences for millions of customers, at unprecedented speed.
