Ninjas assemble!

  • ThoughtWorks Sydney

Hello Ninjas,

We hope everyone's Node projects are going well! Sorry it's been awfully quiet here, the last few weeks have been pretty busy for Romain & I. But fear not! Node.ninjas is returning with:

  • new talks! We already have a speaker lined up to tell us all about how promises are the new callbacks.
  • potentially a new location, if the number of attendees exceeds the ThoughtWorks facilities, so sign up asap so we can find a big enough room to fit us all.

To get us back on schedule, the next meetup will be on Thursday 9 May at 6:30pm. As usual, we're looking for more talks of anywhere between 5 and 30 mins on almost any topic, so drop us a line if you want to present to the group.

See you all in May,

Andrew & Romain

    Great event. Love the presentations and am interested in trying out levelDB as an alternative to redis (especially with the ease of sorted keys & streams)

    Thanks to Rod & Raadad for sharing their insights into LevelDB, Vagrant & Salt.

    I'd love for any Ninja's currently using Google Reader to come & help test our app NewsMaven.

    For everyone that asked about our stack, we are currently using:

    * Varnish for content caching (https://www.varnish-cache.org),
    * Node (and Express as our web framework),
    * PassportJS for authentication,
    * Kue + Redis for queuing,
    * Winston for logging,
    * MongoDB (via Mongoose) for persistent document storage,
    * Knox for integration with Amazon S3 and,
    * Nodemailer for sending outbound email.

    Looking forward to the next meetup!
