Intro to node.js - by Roman Shtylman

Intro to node.js is all about getting your first node.js project running. It will cover basics about the node.js runtime environment and module system as well as how to write and use your own modules. Some of the more interesting and useful node.js modules will be covered to help get you started. Everyone is encouraged to bring a laptop and play along.

Roman Shtylman has been using node.js for over a year. He has contributed to a number of node.js modules, maintains a number of his own modules, and has contributed to node.js core. Currently he runs two websites in production using a full node.js stack and has worked on a number of smaller sites and projects using node.js.

    Presentation was alright it could have better without the speaker's side comments/opinions and arrogant tone.

    Great presentation.. would like to see a repeat session that is clearly announced as that. I know several friends would appreciate the intro-to-bootstrap aspect of the session, and I would love to attend again.

    I thought Roman did a great job. Thought he was ambitious to take on a lot of material, which was appropriate. His experience with the framework and web development really shown through. Appreciate his willingness to share, which will inspire others to share.

    I thought it was a great meetup, Roman managed to make it simple enough for those starting on with node as well as interesting for those of us with a little more experience.

    Would have liked it to move a little faster, but Roman did a great job of making sure everyone was following along with each step. Great intro to node.

    Giving up my seat since I won't be able to attend to let others in. Is anyone planning on videoing this? Would be nice to post, if so.

    Thank you for making hands-on beginner-novice friendly tech meetup topics.... Should have a beginner-novice workshop week every year around this time. I enjoyed the Ruby Nuby at Pivotal today... Alot!

    In case it isn't obvious enough from the description (or you don't read such things). Bring a laptop with node.js installed and running! You can learn code by just staring at it :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
