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 chalkparty.com 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.
