Filling in the gaps: A Node.js discussion about something other than express.js
It seems like most Node.js intros/tutorials are some variant of building a RESTful app server with express.js. While this is a great way to get up and running quickly, it fails to address the core principles, patterns, and pitfalls of production Node.js development. This discussion is meant to eliminate "deep magic" and fill in gaps for Node.js developers at all levels of experience.
- Async, non-blocking I/O, and other buzzwords
- Node in Production (automation, deploying, scaling, and calls)
Our presenter Mark is a full stack developer and engineer (formerly of SpeakUp, Blizzard, and Quest Software). He’s has been using Node.js in production since 2012.
