Write code and get back to doing what you love; Sails.js Demo

Write code and get back to doing what you love by Nicholas Young

While it's wonderful to experiment and write JavaScript for academic purposes, one fact remains: we code to achieve a purpose. Node is quickly becoming a tool used by many developers with hard deadlines, because it enables you to quickly build out a solid platform without introducing excess complexity or performance bottlenecks. 

In this presentation, Nicholas Young will show you how to avoid becoming mired in the pit of constant refactoring, and build a functioning, future-proof application using Node.js.

Whether you're disassembling a monolith with years of legacy code, or starting a fresh project, this presentation is guaranteed to help you succeed.

    Hey Sean, Christian Finefield and I are stuck at security. Can you add us to the list?

  • Ishan T.

    I see some people are cancelling and numbers are decreasing for "Going" so I was wondering I could just show up and register.
    Thanks, again.

    June 17, 2014

    • Sean M.

      No. Under no circumstances can you "just show up". The building security won't allow it.

      June 17, 2014

    • Ishan T.

      No problem. Thanks.

      June 17, 2014

  • Ishan T.

    I just got to know about this meetup today and RSVPs were closed when I checked. Is there anyway I can just walk-in and register to attend this?
    Thank you.

    June 17, 2014

    • Sean M.

      No. You must register ahead of time. I added you to the list.
