Presentations: Sharing Code Between Client and Server

  • February 28, 2012 · 6:30 PM

Sharing Code Between Client and Server

One of the most exciting promises of building Web servers in JavaScript has been the notion of sharing JavaScript code between server and client -- no more duplication of application logic! Still, despite the meteoric rise in Node's popularity, we still have very few tools and examples of how to effectively share code between environments. The reason is simple -- sharing code is harder than it looks!

Chris Powers ( will be sharing some of the lessons he has learned about sharing code from working on his Drumkit.js framework. Come prepared to learn what works (and what doesn't) and start DRYing up your own code!

    This meetup was cool. I want to google some of the technologies that were mentioned to learn more about them. I actually learned what JSON was with-in the past two weeks. I've been telling a professor friend at DeVry Chicago about my adventures going to meetups. I'll tell him about this one when I have a chance.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
