Mark Percival will speak about Brunch:

As the list of client side frameworks grows, so does the need for a better development and deployment toolset. When we moved our front-end to Backbone we chose Brunch( for this task. Brunch handles the entire stack of JS/HTML5 development; it compiles coffee-script and mustache templates, handles modularizing your source, and packages/minifies the final output. It's not tied to any particular framework, can easily be extended with plugins, and is written entirely in Javascript on NodeJS. In this talk, we'll discuss what we learned from moving our development process to Brunch, and some of the sticking points along the way.

Max Ogden will speak about Database.js - Why you should or shouldn't try to write a database in JavaScript:

Node is a first class citizen when it comes to writing web services. Some databases try to integrate the persistence layer with the network layer (CouchDB), but it would be really nice if you could just use node instead. Which parts can be done in a performant way? This talk covers rolling your own database server on top of LevelDB.

Aaron Heckmann will speak on Mongoose:

Mongoose is a MongoDB ODM for Nodejs and is in active development for its next major release. Come hear about the joys and tears of working on an ODM in Node and discover what its future holds.

    The guy in charge of mongo for node, together with the guy in charge of node. In one place at the same time. Questions answered.

    In the setting of Hot Studio, with Mozilla talking about Firefox OS.

    I have said it before: how is Dave possibly going to top this?
