The second week of February, Web Chefs Patrick and Flip visited San Francisco for the Forward 4 Web Technology Summit.
The keynote address was another notable moment of the conference. Kassandra Perch gave an excellent talk about building bots with Node.js, and emphasized the importance of maintaining a code of conduct in open source communities like NodeBot. She demonstrated the importance of encouraging an atmosphere of kindness and patience in a community by showing us how quickly the NodeBot community has grown, and how pleasant it is to be a community member. Douglass Crockford spoke on the broken state of the web, and his plan for solving some of the challenges that we currently face in the world of networked applications.
