Node.js Workshop II: toolkit to make your work efficiently

Conan Zhang and Vivian Zhang are writing a book and looking forward to publish it. Vivian Zhang will share with you most of the tools they wrote in the book.

This event is hands-on.

Vivian will work you through  how to set up a website login page (including acct authorization and security protection) and scrap a webpage. Vivian has set up Amazon instance (Ubuntu[masked]) for everyone. 

We will learn

--Deployment of Node.js on AWS EC2 Instance 

-- Use Bootstrap Framework for our page 

--Rules of Routes, Session and MongoDB, Error Handling and Visiting Control 

--Web Scrapper 

--Save JSON data into MongoDB

The workshop is contributed by Vivian Zhang(CTO of SupStat Inc and Founder of NYC Data Science Academy) and Tong He (Data Scientist of SupStat Inc).


<<Node.js toolkit>>, will introduce you to use Javescript as server side script and use node.js framework to develop website. Nodejs framework is based on the V8 engine which is the fastest Javascript engine. Chrome browser is also based on V8. It is very smooth even when you open 20 to 30 pages simultaneously. Node.js standard web development framework, Express, can help us quickly build web sites. Developing website by node.js is more efficient than doing it by PHP and require less steep learning curve. It is ideal for building small sites and personalized web sites. 

We introduce you a lot of handy tools to reduce your workload and make elegant and beautiful site easily.
