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...

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
