Creating Killer Web Applications with NodeJS: From Soup to Nuts

by Johnny Wey

NodeJS is an outstanding platform but it's pretty low-level. Starting from a core project skeleton, learn how to put together a modern web application using some of the coolest NodeJS tools and packages available. Additionally, we'll also cover unit testing, code coverage and debugging to make sure your web application really shines.

 

Discover The Zen Of Writing (Ascii)Docs

by Dan Allen

Writing documentation is already hard enough. Why do we make it even more difficult by burying the content in XML or struggling with finicky WSYWIG editors? Drop the angled brackets and discover the zen of writing documentation in AsciiDoc. While the format is plain text, it can still output beautiful HTML 5, DocBook and PDF documents--or even a slide deck like the one used in this presentation!

    Interesting info on node.js, but I Didn't walk away with much understanding. Maybe it was useful for people with some knowledge, but I would have liked more of an introduction. The second speaker was definitely entertaining to listen to unfortunately I have no interest in ever writing ascii docs.

    Johnny Wey took us on an extensive tour of NodeJS tools for a complete web application. Dan Allen extensive involvement with AsciiDoctor was evident throughout his talk which demonstrated how AsciiDoc revolutionizes the creation and transformation of HTML5 content.
