Zones - A Next Generation Async Flow Control Library for Node.js

Bert Belder, Node core committer and StrongLoop Founder, is coming out to Denver to speak to us and demonstrate a flow control project called "Zones" that he's been working for the last few months. 

Why another async flow control project? Currently there are a couple of problems that make it really hard to reason about asynchronous control flow in Node: 

• Stack traces are useless when an asynchronous function fails

• Async functions are hard to compose into more high-level APIs,resulting in callback hell

• Async error handling will cause Node to crash 

Zones should make it easy to handle errors and to avoid resource leaks, provide a way to associate user data to an async flow and much more!

Here's a blog post that Bert has written about Zones:

This is going be a really great meetup, so hope you can make it.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask and look forward to seeing you.

    FYI, during the presentation, I think Bret mentioned Zones.js. The AngularJS group is having a presentation on Zones.js next week on Tuesday.

    Is there a food sponsor for this meetup or should we plan to have food elsewhere? I know I can't think straight if I'm hungry.
