It's easy to code in a bubble, but how often do you get to see a group of Node experts dive into a piece of code together, tearing it apart and coming out with a finely-tuned instrument of asynchronous magic?
We are asking for community contributions of code: either something you wrote or something you use, anonymously if you like. Also, we are looking for volunteers for the panel! Please contact Aidan if interested in either: http://www.meetup.com/nodejs/members/8818215/
