It's here! The inaugural Vancouver Node Brigade meetup will be Nov 1st at the HiVE. We have two very excellent nodejs developers kicking off what I hope to be a long standing, excellent developer focused meetup in Vancouver. Mike Cantelon, and Matt Smillie are well suited to be our very first speakers.
I worked with Matt Smillie at Joyent. He has been in software for a dozen years, with experience ranging from telecoms to the web to academic research. Matt has great attention to detail in his work and as a Joyent engineer he has loads of valuable experience running node in production. He works on an amazing team at Joyent developing their cloud infrastructure.
