Fail Faster: Adding Circuit Breakers to your Node APIs
Node.js is known for it’s ability to provide fast responses, which makes it a perfect candidate for an API or orchestration layer. API failures happen to the best of us and the trick is to be prepared for them. Circuit breakers are a way to prevent upstream dependency issues from cascading down to your other microservices by providing a mechanism for fast fault detection. Craig Freeman (Kenzan) will teach us how to handle failed requests quicker, which will result in a better overall user experience. This talk covers the relationship of circuit breakers to a typical microservices ecosystem as well as demonstrates the pros and cons of this approach. Food and drinks will be provided. There is a pay parking lot adjacent to the building, but there should be street parking available.

    What we're about

    Denver Code Club is the perfect meetup for folks that love learning to code on their own, but would like to meet with others to help push them along. Everyone is welcome at Denver Code Club; whether you're a complete novice or an experienced developer looking to further your skills, we all have one thing in common: writing code.

    This meetup is a hands-on-the-keyboard meetup. We'll collectively follow an outline and meet to discuss where we're at with the course and the challenges that we're facing that week. Or, if you have other things you'd like to work on - an interesting tutorial you've been putting off or freelance work - you're welcome to join us to do that.

    Although we may occasionally have guest speakers, our meetups are focused on providing a space for you learn and further your career. We aren't going to teach you - you are in charge of your own career - but collectively we can help guide each other towards our goals.
