Building a distributed system in Node, quick!

Starting off this meetup, Leon Stankowski will give a short primer on the benefits of building software systems with distributed architectures. 

Following Leon's intro, Matt Walters will jump into code and show a sample multi-service distributed system that anyone can later git-clone and play with. There will be references to tools used for making APIs, pub-sub between services, and other quick topics like deployment. 

We'll be having a one-month break following this meetup, during the month of September.

Come join the fun!

    Are the slides available? It was a nice breakdown of the basic considerations for distributed web applications.

      Esco. My apologies. I was responding to the wrong meetup.

    Meetup was awesome. Learned some new stuff about distributed systems. Thanks guys. Ready for the next nodejs meetup whenever it is.

    Definitely great presentation, plus I like that these principles could be applied to real world programming challenges.

    Fantastic talk on distributed computing. Are Leon's slides available for us to download?

    August 22, 2013

  • Matt C.

    Great presentations, I liked that Matt would talk about best practices when writing apps, ex. your init file should not have logic in it, something that's not obvious when just reading the code and I also plan to emulate in my own apps.

    Cool node module. Here's one that I use that takes a different approach. It uses celery to handle all the broker abstractions.

    Thanks for coming everyone. Feel free to reach out with questions. See you next time!

    Hi everybody! Here are the two repos I'll be using to demonstrate today. [masked]:mateodelnorte/sample-site.git
    [masked]:mateodelnorte/sample-service.git

    I'll be leveraging a messaging bus called RabbitMQ which you can brew install or grab from here: http://www.rabbitmq.com/download.html

    I'm doing a little cleaning up of the code, atm. Apologies for the mess, but I'll try to get things in order before we start. :D

    Gonna have to work late after all. Excited to see the slides/repo though.

    August 21, 2013

  • Esco O.

    Can we get the link to the repo so that we don't all overload the network installing modules and such like the other time :-)

    August 21, 2013

    • Matt W.

      Working in some last minute changes. I'll provide the links momentarily.

  • Aaron P.

    Plans changed... Will there be slides and links posted for after workshop homework?

    August 21, 2013

  • Dave A.

    will there be a video/slides of this presentation?

    August 21, 2013

    • Matt W.

      The presentation will mostly be live code walkthroughs. Unfortunately, I don't believe we have video set up for this one. If anyone would like to take some amateur video, we'll be happy to post it.

      August 21, 2013

  • Joe C.

    Unable to attend, hopefully there will be slides or video posted somewhere.

    Visiting NYC for the week. Would love to get to check this out to learn more about the tech community here. Software Dev previously in Austin

    August 20, 2013

    • Leon S.

      Tech in NYC is a thriving community. Typically many meet ups to choose from each day as well as many job opportunities if you are capable. Good luck!

  • Joanne

    Do you have to be super experienced in JS to understand this talk?

    August 17, 2013

    • Vietnhi P.

      You don't have to understand everything, and you could pick up the guy's business card in case you need to pick his brains later on. Also, the announcements before the presentation might be worth a listen :)

      August 17, 2013

    • Leon S.

      Hi Joanne, The preamble will require no JS knowledge at all. Once Matt takes the floor and jumps in on code there will be need to know JS to follow along but I suspect he'll keep from doing anything too tricky in the sample code. Meanwhile, if you are interested in Node then having a solid understanding of Javascript will be of great benefit to you.
