1492710_10202852149692758_1395822595_oIn the build up to Codegarden 15 we'll be announcing the full schedule in the coming weeks! We must says it’s been hard to make a choice from the many submitted proposals (btw you still have a couple of days to submit your proposal). We are happy to announce another session, Marrying Umbraco and Node.js by Emil Bay.

Codegarden takes place in Copenhagen, June 10th-12th, get your tickets today!

The Session

For Roskilde Festival we needed a great CMS, but with rapid horizontal scaling. TO solve this problem we chose Umbraco for the backoffice and a slim, stateless Node.js API server. This is our story.

The Speaker

Emil Bay is a 22 year old, Copenhagen based full-stack developer at Umwelt. He has been coding since the age of 13, and freelancing since then.

His first job was building applications with WebForms in Asp.NET2.0, but the experience was so traumatising that he has stuck to the open source world since then.

He is especially excited about vNext and the prospect of Windows and UNIX finding common ground.

Avid open source contributor, UNIX ascetic, Node.js hacker and former mathematician.

If you don't know Umbraco, here are some numbers behind the world's friendliest CMS

One of the biggest benefits of using Umbraco is that the community is incredibly pro-active, extremely friendly and helpful.

Chances are that if you get an idea for something you would like to build in Umbraco, someone has already built it. So it is very likely that you can get good and friendly advice from someone from the Umbraco community on Our- just ask.
