Tracy Hinds is the education and community manager for the Node.js Foundation. The educational aspect of her job means she oversees training, onboarding, certification, and other educational programs — with a major focus on providing educational resources that help new Node.js users more readily access the platform. The community aspect means she helps plan, organize and produce events where the Node.js crowd gathers to encounter the foundation’s educational initiatives hands-on and in person.
The foundation’s annual conference, Node Interactive North America 2017, is this week in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Hinds is — naturally — one of the organizers. The New Stack caught up with Hinds to hear all about new tracks and offerings, speakers she is particularly excited to encounter, and what we are pretty sure must be the Node.js community’s first ever 5K Fun Run.
