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: http://strongloop.com/strongblog/announcing-zones-for-node-js/

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.


Cheers!


Richard

    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.
