Getting started with Storm


We are going start 2013 with our very first meetup on Monday 1/14. Visible Measures has generously offered to host the first meeting at their office by South Station, around 6pm. Please RSVP so we know how much pizza and beer to get.

Here's a tentative plan:

6-6:30       Networking and Intros
6:30-7:15  Introduction to Storm
7:15-         Demos, Discussion, etc.

Looking forward to meeting all of you,

    Thanks to everyone who attended the first meetup. It was a lot of fun. We are going to try to hold the next meetup some time in the middle of February. Hope to see you all there!

    I got a lot out of this meetup -- I learned a great deal about Storm even though I'm a neophyte on the subject. I was impressed that the presenters had material of interest to a range of experience.

    As a first time Storm user, I found the talks very good as a start. There is no real substitute to implementing the technology, but it definitely helped me to learn a bit more about what I am working with and hit the ground running. In the future it would be great to accompany each high level point with a specific example so that implementation details and variations could be more clear. Line-by-line code walkthroughs are also helpful for introductory talks especially rob relatively new technologies. In general, a good start to what I hope turns out to be a fruitful ongoing series.

      Thank you for the thoughtful feedback. The presentation did end up being a little bit dense, so I think in retrospect I would have talked less and worked through examples in a bit more detail. We are going to post the slides and the code to this meetup group for anyone that wants the reference while working on their own project.

    Folks, after the initial presentation, we'll have some time for anyone who wants to show off any storm-related work (demos, etc.)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
