This month's presenter is Joe LeBlanc, presenting on Node for PHP Developers:

Learn how both systems manage packages, handle sessions, pass along requests, and render responses. Joe will map an approach Node if you're used to a PHP framework, as well as discuss ways you can even use Node and PHP together.

About our Presenter:
