Buenos Aires, Argentina

Ciudad Cultural Konex

The Conference

NodeConf Argentina is among the first international Node.js conferences taking place in Latin American territory, and a not-for-profit community effort to push Node.js forward in Argentina and Latin America as a whole.

This year’s conference will be a two–day event in sunny Buenos Aires, Argentina, held during November 17th, 18th & 19th. Both action-packed days will be comprised of internationally acclaimed, regional, and local speakers. We are expecting Noders, JavaScripters, front-enders, and other programmers from all over the world.

Our topmost concern is to guarantee the most enjoyable experience to our attendees, while providing a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.

The complex is massive: 2655m2 with a generous front yard, several large gathering areas, and two spacious auditoriums – which explains the wide variety of events that have been held at CCK in the past.

When combined with its amplitude and unique layout, its design has attracted several development conventions in the past, making it a well-regarded venue that’s recognized by many locals for its convenience, conception, and generous dimensions.
