Node.js project demos

Ryan Connelly will present "shopnode" an interface to the shopping cart platform shopify and explain the npm publishing process.

Rick Thomas will present a node project boilerplate that uses Backbone, Marionette, and D3 visualizations. He will discuss the build process for Coffeescript and Lessjs (and upcoming for Dustjs templates and browser-side require/export).

Chris Barnes will demo which is in a public beta at the moment as well as a recent speed game.

NodeJam project concepts for discussion:

Spell-Me-Not (working title) - basically a simple game where people take turns typing a letter one at a time which will form a word. The object is to NOT spell an actual word but keep the chain going. For example, Player 1 starts with "C", then Player 2 types "A", finally Player 3 types "T" and loses the game. Play a round of 10 games. Least losses wins.

Api Client Generator - Simple app that will take interactively ask the user to describe the restful api (object name, which methods are available, add additional method?). Integrate with Swagger somehow. Uses a boilerplate project to help people quickly write a node client api. Builds on Connect/restify/etc.

Rasberry PI - We'll get three different rasberry PI devices. The object is to deploy an app and run it on the cluster framework of Node. Show how a micro server farm could do some damage.

Send an Affirmation - Connect with facebook, send a private message with some kind words.

      I'll be presenting on my experience building and publishing a node package called "shopnode".

      I'll go through all of the pieces that went into creating it. My goal is to show everyone how easy it is to do and inspire others to try it.

      All of the wonderful existing packages out there make it very easy to do. Ridiculously easy.

      Here are the topics

      Planning - What should I build? What is already out there?
      Testing with Vows - BDD
      Designing / Building - Module Design
      Documenting with Groc
      Continuous Integration with Travis CI
      Publishing with NPM
