About NodeStack

There are myriad open source options for building great apps, but one stack is emerging in the Enterprise because it offers superior scalability, integration, performance and time-to-market. NodeStack is the combination of Node.js, MongoDB & SmartOS and provides modern web application architectures.

Each individual component of the stack provides compelling benefits on its own, but next-generation development groups from startup to enterprise are adopting these components as a stack due to the unique benefits of using them together.

Online Conference

On October 17, 2012 the first NodeStack Online Conference was streamed live all over the world. Thousands of people from North & South America, Europe and Asia Pacific tuned in and many of them joined the conversation on Twitter using #NodeStack.

The event explored why organizations are gravitating towards these technologies and why they work so well as a production ready software stack. Experts from the companies behind these technologies (10gen & Joyent) as well as some of the most advanced productions users (Nodejitsu, MongoLab & Clock) review this stack from the top through the foundation and discuss or debate the surrounding aspects of the stack as a whole.

The event was recorded live and is now available to view online. Once you are registered you will have access to 3 main sessions and 90 minutes of panel discussions and audience questions.

This event was so successful and well received that the partners are already planning future events. Register to ensure you are kept informed.
