Details

Join us for some or all of the exciting Node presentations and workshops we have planned for 2015!

The objective of these events is to orient developers to the Node stack. By the end of the year you should have a better understanding of how Node works, plus how develop secure and scalable apps using readily available tools and open source software. Each month will cover a new topic, with take home exercises to test your knowledge. Each evening will conclude with an informal “hack session” to get one-on-one mentoring on the topics presented during the Meetup.

For those coming straight from work, pizza and drinks will be provided. Video recordings of the talks will posted shortly after the event for those who cannot join us.

Abstracts

Session #1: In this session, Tony Pujals (https://twitter.com/subfuzion) will introduce you to Node.js, npm, and enough JavaScript to get started.

Session #2: In this talk, Shubhra Kar (https://www.linkedin.com/in/shubhrakar) from StrongLoop (http://strongloop.com/) will walk you through the fundamentals and architecture of the open source LoopBack (http://loopback.io/) framework. You'll learn how to design data models from scratch, discover them from existing datasources plus how to migrate them. You'll also learn how to connect your APIs to datasources like Oracle, SQL Server, MongoDB and MySQL.

About the Sessions

The sessions scheduled for the first half of the evening are geared towards developers looking to build a solid Node foundation. We’ll start from ground zero and build up knowledge and skills to help you better understand how Node works, developing npm modules, async programming principles, effective JavaScript programming, testing and more.

The sessions scheduled for the second half of the evening will be geared towards developers with an intermediate understanding of Node’s fundamentals. By the end of the series, you should have enough knowledge to leverage open source modules to develop and deploy more advanced Node applications using the open source LoopBack (http://loopback.io/) framework.
