October 25th Node.js Meetup: Error Handling and Cluster Performance
Welcome to Octobers meetup! We're back in the usual spot, IBAT Building 63, Dawson St, Dublin 2, D02 VY51 · Dublin We're delighted to welcome Ruben Bridgewater and Duncan Healy. **Any late arrivals on the night just call Sean: [masked] to open the door. Pizza will be arriving at 7 pm before the talks, get in early! :)** First Speaker: Ruben is a Node.js collaborator, working on Node core and as a Senior Software Architect for NearForm and he deeply cares about the developer experience and performance. Talk Title: Error handling: doing it right! Talk Intro: It’s weekend and you are out at a lake with your family. You get a call from your boss that the application is down and the customers complain all over. You hurry home to fix the issue right away but you can’t find it and decide to revert to the last working state. Later you spend half your sprint searching and fixing the problem. We all have run into issues like this before and our logs did not provide enough information to figure out what the the problem is about. You saw a lot of errors but some had no stack trace and if they did, they were often useless because of the asynchronous JS nature hiding the actual call site. But why all this pain when our life could be peaceful by using best practices in error handling? This is a journey into the asynchronous debugging horrors and the simplicity that async / await in combination with error classes can bring into that world. Second Speaker: Duncan has had a passion for programming for over 30 years, it started while saving for his ZX81 when he was 8... now he works with a fintech building and deploying Node.js, go, python apps for a multi-cluster world! Talk Title: Cluster Performance Talk Intro: Testing Cluster performance in Node.js vs using Kubernetes pod replicas and a draft to deploy to remote cluster live demo!
