Javascript, jQuery, and NodeJS: Teaching Session ++

This next meet we're going to do a teaching session.

One of the things we've realized is that the apps we've introduced so far in the hacking sessions have been for the medium to advanced crowd, in teaching sessions we want to get to the users who are starting with node.js, you should still know how to program, and hopefully know how to program with JavaScript, however this is not required just know we're probably not going to have too much time to hold hands so be prepared to give it a go on your own though we already have some helpful people who come which is great :)

We're going to be building a simple chat application, something that will allow you to work with the backend code and front end code. We'll build a simple chat server app and then we'll build a client.

Sorry it took so long to get this code out, here is the working chat app we'll be going over.

Please bring a computer and make sure you have node.js installed. You wont have to install any other libraries, we'll just be using the default node.js library.

Here is the wiki on how to install node.js

Here is a bit about teaching sessions

If you have any questions please create a new issue:
https://github.com/CSNodejs/WebProsMeetup/issues/new

In teaching sessions we'll be doing a presentation style, but the idea is you can follow along, the difference between that and a hacking session is we will be following a certain stream of thought so as to get through the creation of the specific app. Hacking sessions are rather unstructured :)

    So far, there hasn't been a session yet when I haven't walked away with a new resource and new ideas.

    Had a lot of fun this time, we actually got all the way through the program :D and everything worked, plus a lot of good conversation on how to build a large scalable system from the backend to the front end using various languages/technologies
