Double Header! Jarrett Cruger on Streams and Godot. Realtime+WebRTC w/ Arin Sime

Jarrett Cruger Goes Crazy on Streams and Godot!

In this month's meetup, Jarrett Cruger will throw down the lowdown on streams and live code an example of using them in a simple http server. From there, he'll dive into godot and messaging using a generic JSON format over the network w/ TCP/UDP. He'll discuss ways this can be used for internal logging and gathering metrics data. 

*THEN*, we'll see how Jarrett can build a simple godot server with various "reactors" (which are just streams that filter or send data somewhere etc) and how we can connect this up to the simple http server that we started with to start getting some simple metrics from the process for free! 

following that...

Realtime messaging and WebRTC with Arin Sime!

Arin Sime will be joining us to discuss integrating WebRTC and real time messaging into a Node.js application. He'll demo and describe a simple webinar application showing both video chat and other realtime features. This should be a fun, interactive presentation! 

Arin is also editor of a weekly newsletter on these topics called, and founder of which specializes in realtime web applications.

      If I'm forgetting anything that I promised, just contact me at [masked].

      BTW, I mistakenly described the architecture of a multi-party Peer 2 Peer WebRTC layout as a star when I should have said mesh network. Sorry for any confusion there - the point is that each participant has to have a separate P2P connection to every other participant. Commercial providers can help you get around this scaling bottleneck by using a video server to aggregate the video streams for you.

    Sorry for taking up a space -- I've only just finished with work and won't be able to make it after all :-/

    Curious if the finalized list has been made, or are people still coming in from the wait list?

    April 16, 2014

    • Matt W.

      It's been finalized. Security at the Empire State needs the list mid day so I had to end RSVPs at the same time. We're going to pay close attention to the process this time and look for ways to improve as we move forward

    • Paul H.

      Oh well, Thanks for the update

      April 16, 2014

    Hi everybody!

    A number of people have single names or nicknames listed on their Nodejs Meetup profiles. Shutterstock security, in the Empire State Building, requires your full name.

    Please update your profile with your full name or you won't be allowed in!
