Brian Carlson | `npm publish`: step 1 of infinity
Brian's been a full stack web developer since 2005 and has been active with node since the v0.2.x days. Generally a generalist, he has a focus on product over rhetoric, fun over fanaticism, and simplicity over most things. In his spare time he maintains a number of npm modules, works on various code experiments, writes music, cycles, and hangs out with his new wife.
NPM is an awesome asset for node. It's drastically reduced the friction for both using and publishing modules, creating an exciting and rapidly moving community. I'd like for us to talk about some of the things I've learned in my 2 year experience of building, fostering, and maintaining an unfancy but much needed node module: node-postgres. We will cover the things I've done right (go me!!), things I've done wrong (plenty), and things to consider when you decide to publish & promote a module. I hope is to kindle your own creativity and provide a couple pointers of things to look out for along the way.
