April Meetup: Lightning Talks

The April NodeDC meetup will be Wednesday, April 25 at 7:00 pm at Stetson's Bar right at 16th and U Streets NW. Come out to meet node.js developers, see how people are using node and what they're building, and share your own experiences with it. No node.js experience is needed - just come out ready to talk to people and ask questions.

At 7:30 we'll have a round of introductions followed by two five minute lightning talks.

  • Aaron Silverman will talk about his experiences with free sandbox node.js hosting using nodester or nodejitsu for those looking to play around.
  • Dane Springmeyer will give an introduction to message passing in node.js, To scale programs across many cores and machines efficient message passing is critical. Dane will review the tools you have to work with in node, covering the 'child_process' module, the new 'cluster' module, and third-party add on's like zeromq.node.

We still have room for 1-2 talks. If you'd like to give on - whether it's on code, a project, or an idea - send a message to @nodedc or through the meetup group and we'll add you to the lineup.

This meetup group meets once a month, usually on the fourth Wednesday of the month. For updates watch us on github, follow @nodedc on Twitter, and join the meetup group.

    You know a node meetup is good when both presenters use deck.js

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
