Hey Node Hackers,
Great to see so many RSVPs for tonight!
While the main topic around might not sound so exciting and glamorous, it is an important one to tackle for those serious about getting comfortable with Node development and its package ecosystem.
The flexibility in various module authoring patterns can seem a bit mysterious when you're new to Node, so that is one of the things we'll be sure to dive into tonight.
Even if you've been developing with Node for a while and are fairly comfortable with npm, you may learn a few new tricks tonight that you were unaware of.
Tonight, I will also introduce Adam Crabtree from LinkedIn. He's the organizer for BayNode, who we're now merging with. BayNode has almost 900 members and 2014 will be a very active year. Can't get your fix with enough Node meetups? Well, there is good news! Every month there will be meetups to accommodate a range of interests and skill levels.
Also tonight, Shubhra Kar from StrongLoop will be giving a brief presentation, called
"DevOps for Node - open source private registry, debugging and tools-chains for profiling, monitoring, managing and scaling Node apps"
The private registry aspect fits in perfectly with tonight's theme.
Finally, I want to mention that tonight is the first meetup with StrongLoop backing us as an official sponsor. StrongLoop is a big player in the Node community with its StrongLoop Suite. They will be providing food and beer (yes!!) as well as paying for recording the event so those who can't make it can also see it. If you haven't checked them out, visit their site at http://strongloop.com/.
Looking forward to seeing everyone this evening!
