I Just Did a Node

This time we'll be having the long awaited meetup about Node.js.

Introduction To Node.js - (Ran Mizrahi)

Node.js is a platform built on Chrome V8 javascript runtime engine for building fast and scalable, non-blocking, real-time and network applications. In this session Ran will introduce node.js and how to develop large code bases using it. He'll cover the following aspects:

• What is node.js? 

• Apache vs. Nginx performance (One thread per connection vs. event loop) and what it has to do with node.js.

• Why node was written in Javascript?

• Main tools and frameworks (Express,, mongoose etc.)

• TDD/BDD with node.js using mocha and expect.js

Ran Mizrahi,  Founder of CoCycles, Passionate entrepreneur and software engineer who loves to continuously innovate and deliver meaningful products while having true fun with the right team.

Production Ready Node.js Server - An Honest Look (Zohar Sacks)

An honest, self experience node tuneups you should consider before pushing to production - what to do, what not to do and what to do later.

Zohar Zacks, Code welder, certified geek, serial entrepreneur 

Callback Hell Awaiting ES6 Heaven - Promises! (Gil Tayar)

A Node.js talk about current and future strategies of dealing with async code.
We'll move from the standard callback, to promises, and from there to es6 generators that yield promises and finally to the es7 async/await. The progression will be a buildup, where each step is explained in terms of the previous step.

Gil Tayar, From the olden days of DOS, to the stratospheric architectures of Wix, Gil was, is, and always will be, a software developer.

    Great Meetup! Shai's a great host and the presentations were great. The only thing I was missing was a bit more socializing time to get to know other developers. Beers are always a great touch ;)

    היה אירוע מעולה !
    כל הכבוד למארגנים, למרצים ולמבדרים. וכמובן לוויקס שתרמו את הגג.
    המלצה קטנה לפעם הבאה (לפחות לגג של וויקס), להרים טיפה את המסך כדי שכולם יראו את כולו, ולשים מאוורר למרצים. לפחות אחד מהם נראה כאילו הוא סובל ;)

    The talk is in English, right? What about people in waitlist?

    August 27, 2014

    • Nadav

      People in waiting list won't be able to go inside?

      August 27, 2014

    • Shai R.

      People physically will not be able to get inside if too many people will show up, so please respect the waiting list queue, there will be other node meetups, next time we'll do it in a larger space. Thanks for the understanding
