I will be moderating the NodeSummit 2013 panel "Why Large Scale Mobile and E-Commerce Apps Use Node.js" on December 3rd. The list of panelists is fantastic:

  • Jigar Desai, Sr. Director, Platforms, eBay
  • Kiran Prasad, Sr. Director, Mobile Engineering, LinkedIn
  • Bill Scott, Sr. Director, UI Engineering, PayPal
  • Sri Viswanath, SVP Engineering and Operations, Groupon

Each of the panelists has a wealth of knowledge on using Node.JS to solve real-world, large-scale problems. Worried that Node.JS isn't ready for production? I think these individuals should be able to explain why Node.JS absolutely IS ready.

I'm hoping to make this more of a spontaneous conversation. Rather than simply asking each panelist a pre-canned question, I think we can just talk and share stories around the following themes:

  • What is it that caused you to look at Node.Js - what is the problem you were trying to solve?
  • How has that played out in your organization?
  • Given that Node.JS is a pre-1.0 technology, how has that played out? What challenges have you faced?
