Node.js will one day run my life. For now, it just runs my house.

Node.js will one day run my life. For now, it just runs my house.

It was a cold winters day in Chicago when a few guys, a case of beer and some JavaScript came together to do the unthinkable: open a garage door. Expecting something more? Let's talk about taking that same garage door to the cloud! A micro-controller, some JavaScript, a little node and the cloud is all you need to do some pretty epic stuff. Come find out how and why Clark did it.

Clark Sell,
Web Evangelist, Microsoft

A Chicago native who can’t spell, Clark as a kid actually made his money building cars, getting grease under his nails. That art of building would later lead him to software development where he drinks the Web Development Kool-Aid. Writing code is what keeps Clark awake at night, while continually working on his craft and rapping with others over a few cold CORS. You can hear Clark muse about software on his podcast Developer Smackdown, or find his family cruising around in a 1968 Camaro SS.

Jon Gottfried,

@jonmarkgo is a Developer Evangelist at Twilio.

    Hey all - we're building our application in node.js and we're looking for some folks to join our team. I'll be at the meet-up, but shoot me an email if you want to learn more. [masked].
