Node.js for Designers (redux)

Josh Powell, Sr. Rocket Scientist and book author of the upcoming Manning title "Single Page Web Applications" (MEAP title), will present Node.js for Designers.  In this session, Josh will cover a spectrum of topics to enable the designer/developer/lone wolf to develop great looking sites and apps on Node.js.  This will include getting started with JS and Node.js (even if you are stuck on Windows), choosing an MVC framework, getting conversant with NPM, basics of data persistence, and a variety of other topics that will help Designers and those new to Node.js get started.

More details to come on Agenda.  Engine Yard has graciously offered to host, and will have some door prizes for folks, as well as some food/drink.  Josh will also have some Manning related shwaggle on hand.

 

If you have a great designer friendly module, or if you are a designer that has built something cool using node, or just have something to say on this topic, please contact me.

 

As always, we will be opening up more spots as the date gets closer (space is limited).  And if you already know node.js really well, consider skipping this evening and staying home to study Dart so that some Node-newbs can get a shot at learning something new.  If you have something to add to the topic, I encourage you to come and share some of your experiences.  Thx!

    Oops, thanks John. Will fix it soon. Gavin - sorry that you had trouble hearing, next time please let me know and I'll speak louder. It's hard to judge if you can hear me in the back, next time I'll be sure to ask as well. Thanks for coming!

    Can the prize winner last night please contact me with some more useful contact info? The email address we received from you bounced.

    I really enjoyed Josh's approach and sensible (assume nothing that we all know how it all works) approach to teaching Node. I think there is a good sequel to this story if Josh is interested in coming back and presenting some more examples or sample sites that could be easily built deployed by a designer without extensive Node-knowledge.

    Hey Josh, Great talk. Just FYI, the zip at http://jsjoshing.com/wp-content...­ has empty folders.

    I had difficulty hearing the speaking & the audience's questions.
    I also had difficulty seeing the dim projection.

    Definitely a good intro for absolute beginners with limited programming knowledge.

    Hi Everyone, my name is Josh Powell and I gave the Node.js for Designers talk. Thank you all for coming, I had a blast and hope that you did to. Would love to hear any comments or constructive criticism you have on the talk and would appreciate it if you could rate the talk on this site. I have published the Keynote file I used and most of the code listings on my blog, jsjoshing.com. Thanks again!

    Tentative agenda: 6:30-7ish, Food/Drink/Networking. 7ish, our main speaker will present. We will offer some time at the end for questions and any community announcements. Please try to show up before 7 to make sure you get time to network and eat something. We will wrap up by 9.

    Folks, re: recording/streaming, unless I have someone from the community willing to sponsor or handle this, I don't have the cycles or skill to pull off the quality level that people expect from recorded or streamed events. I'm open to having someone volunteer to do this or to sponsor it (hint hint), as long as it can be a regular commitment. Otherwise, we'll keep this event as one for people who can attend in person.

    This is a great topic and perfect for what I need now. It would be wonderful if the session could be recorded and available to those who could not make it.

    Why no waitlist?

    Thanks!

    Added space

  • Neal R.

    Dang! Just missed the cutoff :( Looks very interesting indeed! I guess I'll have to wait till the next round (in August maybe?)

    July 29, 2012

  • Truedat

    I'm also setting up something for August, thinking about Real Time Web and Node.js ... do you have an app, module, or technology that fits into this topic. Batting around ideas now.

    And more seats. Please double check your iCal and make sure that you don't have other plans. As a non-SF courtesy thing, please change a "maybe" status to a "no" so the organizers can get a better count of who is coming, and to open a spot for someone who really wants to come. Thank you again for being cool about that.

    Would be interested if additional openings become available. Thanks!

    July 22, 2012

  • Truedat

    More seats available. I'll add more next week.

    July 21, 2012

  • Justin W.

    Please ping me when another seat opens. I tried on the 1st day and checked back on Friday without luck so far.

    July 20, 2012

  • Gavin M.

    I'm interested in learning this. Is there a spot for me?

    July 20, 2012

  • jae

    booyah!

    More spots have been opened.

    Also want in, if possible. Thanks!

  • Mike

    I'm also interested in going if any seats open up.

    July 19, 2012

  • Truedat

    As always with the meetup, we don't do waitlists. They favor people who are quick to respond to meetup announcements. I'll ping all by email who chime in when I release seats.

    July 19, 2012

  • sandra V.

    Yes...I want to come too...It's possible a wait list, please?

    July 19, 2012

  • Truedat

    Hi Folks, as always, I stagger opening of seats for the event because some people are busy during the day and aren't quick to click on yes. A couple of things ... people are constantly changing status from Yes->No, and that means seats open up. I'll open seats on Friday and again early in the week next week. And since 50% usually are no-shows, I'll put the usual pressure for 'Maybes' to change status to not going.

  • jae

    Same. I want in.

    July 18, 2012

  • Cameron S.

    Could you open up a wait list? I responded to the email within 15 minutes, but it's already full. Bummer.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
