Roundtable: Callbacks versus, streams, events, promises, etc.

  • This location is shown only to members

NodeJS offers several options for flow control.  Typically most developers start with callbacks or events, but some new options like promises have emerged.  What are the pros & cons of each approach?  How do the options affect readability & debugging?

This is an intimate roundtable format discussion, thus the number of participants is limited.  Please be prepared to actively participate in the discussion.

    It was good. I was my first meetup in round table style and i really enjoyed.

    Only 25 spots and 84 on the wait list???? Guys, its time to move this out of someone's livingroom/workspace and get a real space that can accommodate more people. As my company is in NJ, I doubt people will trek over here if we offer our space. Someone please correct this glaring space inadequacy by find a more accommodating venue. Thanks!

      I don't think the round table format was such a great idea. Having said that, if 100 people claim they will show up, then about 33 will show up.

      I don't want to be a critic behind a keyboard and not offer assistance (the MO of the newly emergent digital whimp). I have some AV equipment and would be willing to volunteer and record in HD for online publishing (YouTube). Is this something the organizer's would like to take advantage of? Let me know.

    This sounds like a great discussion. While I understand why you're keeping it small, it would be great to review the talking points from G Hangout or notes taken by anyone who will be attending.

    For those not able to attend, the excellent podcast Javascript Jabber had an episode covering promises:

    Why don't you broadcast this event on Google Hangout?

    Any chance you guys can stream the event on something like Google Hangout? I'd be fine just hearing the roundtable since the event is already full.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
