• Chicago Node: NestJS: A Node Framework That's Just Right

    Fullstack Academy of Code

    Title: NestJS: A Node Framework That's Just Right Description: Node web frameworks come in a variety of flavors. From the minimalist router that is Express to the highly-opinionated set of patterns given by Sails, but if you're looking for something that's a little bit of both, there's a new framework in town. NestJS is a progressive, server-side framework that offers developers a reliable core architecture pattern with the ability to extend it at will. It combines some of the most popular Node libraries with Typescript and dependency injection to offer a developer experience that's quite different from other Node frameworks, but may be more comfortable for developers moving from Rails or Laravel. In this introduction to NestJS, we'll talk about where it fits in the Node framework landscape and some of the features that make it a pleasure to work with. We'll look at real code, but keep the talk high-level enough that you won't have to know Typescript to follow along. Speaker: Karl L.

  • Chicago Node: Orchestrating async with RXJS and RxHelper

    Fullstack Academy of Code

    Title: Rx-Helper - Write Decoupled, Streaming Realtime Apps with RxJS ***Note: This meetup has changed locations!*** Description: Come see how to use the power of RxJS to: - Modularize your apps, building out from a core of framework-independent logic - Stub out unknowns so you can get right to work on the essence of your application - Have a Clean Architecture that allows you to swap out UI frameworks, persistence tiers, or any other component while leaving most of your program unchanged. Like JQuery enabled a boom in productivity by paving over differences between browsers, Rx-Helper allows you to pave over differences between: Client/server programming style One UI framework and another Data that's available now, and data that's available later Speaker Bio: Dean Radcliffe has been web-developing since the 'table' tag was the new hotness. He lives in Evanston with his family, loves playing music, running and juggling, and loves to help people make whatever they can dream up.

  • Chicago Node: Serverless Authentication Strategies with Netlify Identity

    Title: Serverless Authentication Strategies with Netlify Identity Note: This meetup is being co-hosted by the Chicago Serverless meetup (https://www.meetup.com/Chicago-Serverless/events/259156669/) Description: Authentication is often a complex concept and integrating it into apps can require a lot of effort, especially for those not used to the mechanics of securing apps. In the past authentication used to be something reserved for the backend, but the frontend is more feature rich and authentication is now a necessary concept to understand when building a robust client-side application. In this talk, we will cover the various pieces that makeup authentication as well as strategies to integrate authentication, specifically Netlify Identity, seamlessly into your serverless workflows. Speaker Bio:Divya Sasidharan is a Developer Advocate for Netlify.

  • Chicago Node.js Meetup!

    Fullstack Academy of Code

    Title: Event Sourcing With Node.js ***Note: This meetup has changed locations!*** Description: Event Sourcing is a popular design pattern for managing the change of state. Instead of changing your state directly, record a set of events. These events can be processed to produce the underlying state. This means state can be recreated as business logic changes. The pattern is relatively simple to explain, but not always simple to implement. In this talk Willy will demystify the pattern, reveal some best practices, and show you how to get started using event sourcing in Node.js Speaker Bio: Willy Raedy Schedule 6:00 - 6:15 :: Food and Networking 6:15 - 7:15 :: Main Presentation 7:00 - 7:15 :: Open Mic Chicago Node.js Events Food is always provided!
