Our talk night will be happening at Silicon Valley Pad (1370 Willow Road, 2nd Floor, Menlo Park, CA). Look for 'Menlo Science & Technology Park' and take the first left once you have turned off of Willow Road.
We'll kick things off at 7pm with food and beverages sponsored by Stormpath. Talks will start at 7:30pm and should wrap up by 9pm.
We have an open call for talks - please submit a lightning proposal to the BayNode GitHub
Everyone is welcome to attend: newcomers to node.js, those interested to hear what the hype is about, and experienced developers looking to trade tricks.
Synth - Jon Abrams:
Synth is a new back-end framework designed to make it as easy as possible to power front-end heavy apps powered by frameworks like AngularJS and EmberJS.
Easily create API endpoints by just declaring functions, and return promises that eventually turn into JSON responses.Auto-preloads data and templates so the browser doesn't need to make multiple round-trips before displaying your app to the user.Use Angular-style services on the back-end. The easiest way to write DRY back-end code and produce a very powerful back-end with minimal code.

Gulp.js - Ross Kukulinski
Gulp is (yet another) build/script tool for NodeJS. Whereas Grunt is 'configuration' based, Gulp is 'stream' based -- which should be familiar to NodeJS folks. In this talk, I'll cover some Gulp basics, then move onto some more complex configurations.
