Become a Beta Tester for the Node.js Certified Developer Exam

We’re creating the inaugural version of the Node.js Certified Developer Exam and are looking for beta testers to participate in this initial phase of development. The certification program aims to establish a baseline of competency in Node.js. Node.js Certified Developers can work proficiently in JavaScript with the Node.js platform to build, debug, test and maintain secure framework-independent applications and CLI tools. In this phase, participants who receive a passing score will receive their official certification.

Building a Simple AI Chatbot with Web Speech API and Node.js

Voice commands are becoming a universal way to interact with our devices from our phones (Siri and Cortana) to our living rooms (Amazon Echo and Google Home). In this article, Tomomi Imura, demos how to use speech recognition software to create an AI voice chat application that listens to a user’s voice and replies with a synthetic voice. She walks you through setting up the application with Express and Node.js, and integrates the Web Speech API.

NodeVMS: Trustless Execution of Services on Node.js

NodeVMS is a cryptographically auditable VM service using Node.js and Dat. Built by Paul Frazee, NodeVMS is a server which provides external auditability of its state and behaviors using secure ledgers. This is a great tool to audit high-value data sets or for execution on untrusted hardware.
