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!
