    Intro do node was very rudimentray. It would have been helpful if there were more hands on examples and some talk around NPM. Programming for games was intreresting.

    did expect a more extensive intro presentation, but appreciate Le's going off script for a bit. would like to see a number of topics in future 1) best practices/patterns, 2) overview of the ecosystem (packages like socket.io, express, etc.). Not sure if model was intended, but combo of instruction (Le) + real world (like Geoff's game programming) is good balance

    The intro to node presentation could have been better (more examples, an intro to npm, etc...) I did like the network games overview quite a bit, it was nice to hear from someone with experience in the field.

    Thanks for coming everyone! Nate -good point, would be nice to attack some of the networking issues w/ Node. At the very least, it would be cool to address them in a demo at the next meetup :)

    Olivier and everyone else -my slides are up at http://introtonode.herokuapp.com

    The source code for the slides and webserver are more interesting and you can check them out here: https://github.com/leisms/IntroToNode

    thought the intro to Node was a very weak presentation.

    Basic Foundation of information was good. One thought: It might have been interesting to have had Geoff present first and then maybe Le could have touched on some of the ways node could do the networking gymnastics that Geoff had shown to be vital to interactive app/game (i.e. touch on UDP, socket.io module, or other).

    Unfortunately I cannot attend the presentation tonight... I am so interested by NodeJs... Will it be possible to see the presentation online ?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
