Summer Node.js Meetup - Microservices, PostgreSQL, and a fireside chat

Join us Tue Aug 5th for the summer 2014 Node.js meetup. We've got two great talks, a fireside chat, and pizza and beers courtesy of The Working Group

From IBM DevOps Services, Dejan Glozic will discuss leveraging a Microservice archicture with Node.js. Micro-services have emerged as a popular strategy for building modern distributed systems in the last couple of years. In this talk Dejan will show why Node.js is a particularly good choice as a technology for building micro-services, and why his IBM team has chosen to do it.

Matt Sergeant the creator of Haraka the open-source SMTP server used by Craigslist will present "Why Node Users Should Choose PostgreSQL." Matt will be discussing the pros and cons of using PostgreSQL as a data store for Node projects.

Julian Lam founder of NodeBB and Derek Watson Tech Lead at The Working Group will be hosting a fireside chat, discussing recent developments and trends in Node.js. 

We're looking forward to seeing everyone again Aug 5th.

      I wonder what kind of prep could go into that... Could even livestream over Google Hangouts in the future...
