Doodle or Die

Doodle or Die was originally created here in DC as an entry for the second Node Knockout Competition.  After winning the category for "Most Fun", we've kept working on Doodle or Die and it has grown into a game that has thousands of players each day who have drawn millions of doodles.  We will talk about how we used node to build and scale the game, as well as our tech stack, favorite modules, and lessons learned.

    Great presentation. They kept it at the right level, stating what they used to build their site, but not getting caught up in a code demonstration.

    Great that the guys could share some "deep dive" Node.js info with us on their prize winning app.

    Is there any chance of getting hold of the slide deck? I'd like to show it to some friends who couldn't make it to the meetup.

    Had lots of fun presenting. Great audience - no hecklers or smartasses which can be common in our field.

    Great meetup! The talk was very informative, genuine, and easy to understand. I appreciated how the doodle guys were very open with all the different things that they dealt with, which really helps when others are just trying this stuff out. Looking forward to seeing this as an app :)

    Many probably view this app as silly, but there's enough engineering involved to make it interesting.

    One of the most entertaining (and informative) presentations I've seen.
