Winter's coming, come Node with us!

  • Jun 18, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

This is our first winter meetup! But unlike Game Of Thrones, this winter is gonna be all relaxed and fun, hanging out with the Node.js community. We already have 2 great speakers lined up:

- Nik Butenko will tell us all about how he uses Node+Redis to create event-based models... to be consumed from a PHP-based CMS!

- Leo Borges wanted to present about promises last time, but didn't make it. This time he promised (haha) that he will be here, and change how you think about async.

As always, just email Andrew or me if you want to present. It would be great to have a 3rd speaker, I'm sure many of you have great ideas or projects to share & demo!

See you all on Tuesday the 18th!

    Any advice/recommendations on where best to host a node/mongo app? Australia preferred, but not necessary. Thx.

    I've created simple Vagrant-NodeJS bootstrap with help, how to install it. There is a basic node/ app, that pings browser via events. May be useful for quick-start. Follow the link to find more details about it.

      I believe it is always possible to bring some new tech to your project. You just have to find right words at right time to convince the business behind it. And of course you must believe it will work =)

    Hi all,

    I'm the one who had to break the promises. Really sorry about this.

    Hi ninjas!

    Unfortunately, one of our speakers had to cancel at the last minute... so no talk about promises tonight. So we changed our plans a little, and here a new and exciting schedule:

    - 6pm Arrive & mingle, there's beer in the fridge :)

    - 6:30pm Micro-services

    James Lewis, principal consultant for ThoughtWorks, is coming all the way from the UK to present about micro-services and adaptive architectures. This is the talk he's presenting at Agile Australia tomorrow, so you're getting an early preview!

    - 7:30pm Pizza!

    - 7:45pm Event-driven models

    Nik, one of our regular ninjas, will talk about Node, PHP, and how he uses Redis has an model repo / event-hub to orchestrate it all.

    This meetup will start earlier that usual, please arrive *before* 6:30 as it will be a sharp 6:30 start, in the office's main area.

    ... and to everyone who can't make it, see you next time for sure!

  • Rod V.

    I'm going to have to bail on my RSVP, too much going on this week for a trip up north--although I'd love to come and heckle about promises from the back of the room.
    Have fun all!

  • Alex H.

    Sorry. Double booked :( I'll be at the next one.

    Thanks to @raadad, I now use Vagrant+Salt to create a sandbox.
    So you will be able to run my demo on your environment with couple of clicks!

    In addition, I wrote some scripts to automatically install latest Node+NPM (1.10.x), Redis, Apache, PHP, PHPRedis, populate database with some test data and run these all. I will share all those scripts as well.

    Thanks guys, you are awesome!
