Ninjas and Ninjistas
August 19th, Node Ninjas returns from the shadows at the ThoughtWorks offices (Level 8, 51 Pitt St, Sydney NSW 2000).
We'll kick off at 6.30 PM, and will have two guest speakers - and, of course, dinner.
Our topics of the night
HTTP 2.0 and NodeJS
HTTP 2.0 is weeks away from being finalised, but NodeJS has had the ability to use most of its features for a while. Come and learn both what HTTP 2.0 means for your applications, and how you can easily enable it in your Express-based applications.
Scaling Node.js across multiple CPU cores
The talk will focus on how to write robust parallel Node.js apps in order to make use of multiple CPU cores.
It will focus on concepts such as inter-process load balancing, IPC, error handling/logging, respawning crashed processes, shared session/data stores. I will be using SocketCluster ( http://github.com/topcloud/socketcluster ) to illustrate some of those challenges.
See you there!,
your friendly neighbourhood Ninjias
