Please RSVP at http://JS.LA if you plan on attending so we know how much food and drink to get.
Next week, on Thursday, August 28th, JS.LA will be hosted at Maker Studios (map) in Culver City and will be sponsored by O'Reilly's Velocity Conference and Verizon EdgeCast.
This month, we'll be focusing on building rock-solid apps and running them in production:
Node.js in Production
Presented by: Jeff Dickey
Test-driven Development of Web Apps in Node.js
Presented by: Tommy Stanton
Node.js is a natural choice for anything HTTP, so it has quickly become popular for writing web applications. As a complement, the language offers viable means of conducting test-driven development (TDD). Some of the technologies covered in this talk will be: Express, SuperAgent, Mocha, and Chai. Tommy will explain TDD basics from a Node perspective, transitioning into real examples of clever ways to prove that a web app works as advertised. The result is a surge in programmer confidence and a foundation to ensure long-term software quality!
Last month's videos are up!
If you missed our last event at Two Bit Circus, or you just can't get over how awesome they were, check out the last two talks:
Build Systems: The Next Generation by Contra
