And so it begins, the slow takeover of the Internet at the hands of Node.js and it all started with an unsuspecting user group called DallasNode in the DFW area. The singularity is upon us, embrace and join the revolution!

There are definitely a multitude of ways to daemonize node in production. Some services (heroku / joyent / nodejitsu) do it via git hooks. If you have your own box and you just want to hack on something quickly, I'd use forever (npm install forever).

I think setting up a deployment strategy would be great. Whether it be your own server or a cloud account. Just going over something like using git to deploy code to "production", having a post checkout script run to restart the service, etc. I think that would be inline with the attitude of getting to prod early.
Video transcoding would be cool too IMHO. Where can we start a discussion about it? If anything, just to list some ideas for future reference.

@Dave, yea getting out of the cave is important, helped me too. @clifton, the image transcoding would be a good topic. Thanks for offering.
I'll be there too. Two months ago I showed how to make a basic chat application in Node via twitter/github login (source here: https://github.com/clifton/dallas-node/blob/master/server.js ).
I can give a quick overview / live coding session on saving / replaying chat logs as well if you guys are interested.
Or I could talk about doing something else. I know at least one other person wants to know how to use S3 with transcoding of media. I've done that too. I'm cool with whatever.
For what it's worth, I'm glad I stopped by. Just chatting with Joey and Larry for a few minutes, it dawned on me how important it is to get out of the cave every once in a while. I'll definitely make a point of attending next month.
It's still supposed to be third Thursday so far as I know. We should get a discussion going on next month's meetup on topics to talk about.
They told me it happened the day before on their schedule. I thought it was fishy. Surprised the presenter didn't show (assuming there was a presenter). I assumed it was a paid deal and if we're not on their schedule we can't just come in and meet.
I'm cool with that. I was the only one that showed up last month.
Anyone opposed to a contingency plan? I didn't even think to just go in and have the meetup anyway.
I was stuck at work pretty late. I'll be there next month.
What happened to the meet up?

I can't make it to this meetup, but I'll be there next month. If anyone wants to take on some side work, I've got a great NodeJS project that I could put you on!

Ever wish there was a world where people talked about nothing but node.js all day everyday even while they slept?
Well we did too! So we started Dallas.node to further this Utopian vision to it's breaking limit! Join us if you're a fellow async junkie.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
