Impact Hub – Oakland, California

A community conference for all things npm.

This was an A-mazing conference. Probably one of the most diverse conferences I’ve attended in tech and that’s saying quite a bit.

Such a vibrant community and the catering was just absolutely killer. Lemonade and veggie sandwiches – yummy! #blessed

I learned a bit about:

  • how to publish a module to npm favorite
  • increasing accessibility using aXe core
  • different package managers out there besides npm
  • the nodebot community and how important the code of conduct is
  • semantic versioning
  • registry design patterns


Here are some banners I made in recognition of the conference.

Feel free to download them from this GitHub repo.
