Jan-Christoph Borchardt will present Unhosted

Unhosted is a movement to free people from the web’s monopolies. Personal documents are decoupled from client-side web apps, synced and portable through the open remoteStorage protocol, which combines Webfinger, OAuth, CORS and GET, PUT, DELETE on any key-value store. It enables developers to easily plug in a backend for users and storage which is per-user and decentralized. Users have their documents & identity at a provider they trust, in control of their data, and don’t need new accounts for every service anymore.

Harald Rudell will present webfiller and tagfinder

Webfiller and tagfinder are two node.js modules that inserts data, styling and attributes into pure html5 text prior to adding the markup to the page. The solution also has the benefits of dual-side rendering, integration with Express and organized source files. https://github.com/haraldrudell/webfiller https://github.com/haraldrudell/tagfinder

Dave Edelhart's talk has been postponed to September 5.

Dave Edelhart will present Rapid Application Development with Nuby Express

Nuby Express extends Express and a host of supplemental libraries to provide an extensible, maintainable, testable framework for rapid development in Node. Incorporating the best learned lessons from frameworks such as Zend, Drupal, Express, and Rails, Nuby Express is an OS project designed to enable Node newcomers to ease their way into large project creation and maintenance. Nuby is designed to ba a "glue" framework for frontend frameworks like Angular and Backbone, and comes with extensive templating and monitoring tools to promote introspection into framework-wide resources.

    Hey again! At the meetup, I also briefly showed our project "Terms of Service; Didn’t Read", where we rate website Terms of Service: http://tos-dr.info­

    Since many of you had heard about it then and were excited, I figured I should let you know that we just started a donation campaign to drive the project forward: http://www.indiegogo.com/terms-...­

    Please join in and forward it to your friends. And let me know if you have any questions. Thank you so much!

    Unhosted looks like some pretty amazing technology! I might have to contribute to the project.

    The beer and soda should be cold. Is that lame to say since the food and drinking where free?

    My talk will most likely get postponed - an NPM hiccup this weekend kind of put a log jam in my ability to ensure the code I wanted to discusss was useable. Sorry...
