Node.js Downtown Meetup

  • January 24, 2013 · 6:30 PM

If you can make it downtown, join me at 520 Pike suite 2000 and we can talk about what people are up to, how they are using Node, what they have learned, what they are curious about, what issues they have, how they worked through them, or anything else they want to talk about

I'll be going to Taphouse at[masked]th Ave between 5 and 6:30 for pre-funk if anyone wants to join me. Call[masked] if you are at 520 Pike and need help getting up to the 20th floor

    Nice meetup, it was fun and interesting, Thanks!

    FYI, The company I work for is looking for a couple of developers. We need a Java developer who has experience with Spring, JMS, etc. and a Javascript developer for our front end (we use ExtJS). We are considering converting a piece of our backend to Node.

    If you're interested, let me know and I can give you more information.

    Fun meetup. Wished there was a more structured talk/theme but fun regardless!

    Here's the link to the repository I used for the demos:­

    I'd love it if people interested in experimenting more with Node forked the repository and gave a shot at solving some of the homework I mentioned, would love to see some solutions.

    Here's the other link I referenced, to Ravenwall:­

    Thanks for listening!

    Good turnout, good conversation, thanks for coming everyone. Looking forward to the next meeting. I'm happy to host at Marchex again later if we are looking for a venue, but don't let me stop you from hosting one! :)

    Thanks so much speakers! This link came to mind as a thorough list of resources for helping people get started with node:­. This link came to mind for comparing v8 performance to some other languages for computationally intensive tasks:­

    I have been using Node as dynamic server for some stock analytic software. I have been favorably impressed. Fast, small and seems stable. My main complaint so far is that there are times where true multi-core threading would help. I also ran into an issue where the memory manager crashed when parsing a data set that was successful in Python, F#, Lua, and GO. To be fair this was over 300 meg of metadata representing millions of small objects indexed in a large hash-table. This limit seems pretty silly for an emerging technology in a 64 bit world for a tool focusing on server side. Also used node for server side photo scrap book project. Very easy to build dynamic handler dispatch. Have to be careful to minimize blocking compute operations which is where a choice to support threading where needed would be nice.

    Pre-Funk is where it's at.

    I have a simple site which aggregates music from multiple music sources (HypeMachine, SondCloud etc..).
    Can't wait to hear some ideas/feedback on how to improve!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
