As a developer, I have built a few full services with PHP/Yii or Node.js backend and Coffeescript/JS front end. I have also designed the layouts of a couple projects, and love this part of project development.
The focus of this group will be to learn node js through a practical approach. We will have speakers followed by "open spaces" discussions.
And of course anyone interested in changing the world.
We will have a heavy focus on mobile computing devices and other smart devices like TVs with less focus on plain desktop pc.
