A look into Node.js at Indigo

Welcome back nodesters, we're having our first meetup of 2014. We'll be meeting Feb 25th from 7-9pm at The Working Group, with presentations from the team at Indigo and the NodeBB team.

Kreshnik Mati and Oleg Kirichenko are going to discuss how Node is leveraged at Indigo with their presentation: 

"Distributed, Asynchronous, Computing, using Node.js and other tools at Indigo.

Node.js is built around an opinionated choice that all I/O should be asynchronous. This means that the whole Node ecosystem is also asynchronous.Distributed, service oriented architectures have been researched and developed widely for a while, but the rise of asynchronous, reactive systems has opened the doors for loose micro-services that communicate internally with each other and still allow for high throughput.

Working with Node also allows us to use Isomorphic Javascript; code that can run unchanged both in the server and the client. Otherwise called as the 'Holy Grail of Web Development’. We will go through a framework we are currently building that makes use of these concepts."

Julian Lam and the NodeBB team are going to present their forum software and share some interesting Node tricks and tips.

We're looking forward to seeing you all soon. Please make sure to RSVP early to ensure a spot at this meetup.

Cheers,
Neal

    Hi everyone,

    I mentioned during the meetup that 360 Incentives is looking to hire people interested in working full-time on node and distributed systems in general. Here's a link to the job posting:

    http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs/50127/node-js-developer-building-next-generation-360incentives

    If you directly refer us to a hire, we'll throw a couple hundred bucks in your direction, so let your friends know. (I think it's actually $250, but that didn't sound as cool.)

    If you have any questions and want to talk to me directly, feel free to contact me via the meetup group. I'm happy to answer any questions, both technical and non-technical.

    Cheers,


    Mario Pareja

      FWIW I checked out WebStorm and it got autocomplete completely and utterly wrong. Tried various configuration options and it still couldn't find my own classes. Bad first impression, going back to SublimeText.

    I was hacking with node in development but never took a risk to put it in production. I would be curious to hear about experience of running node.

    February 23, 2014

    • Julian L.

      We run node in production all the time at NodeBB, hit me up at the talk tonight and we'll talk about it :)

      February 25, 2014

    • Matt S.

      From the guest list there's definitely a bunch of us with large ranges of experience of Node in production, with some great war stories. Happy to share mine.
