Welcome to February's meetup! We're delighted to welcome our speakers this month. Peter Poliwoda (@PeterPoliwoda), and Cesar Valdez (@cvaldezr).
**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! :)**
Peter Poliwoda http://peterpoliwoda.me is a Senior Software Engineer at IBM. Hobbyist designer. Front End, Mobile apps, IoT. Curious first adopter of new tech. Peter likes solving problems of day to day life using software and enjoys building solutions that make life easier. If a problem can be explained, it can be solved.
Talk Title: Conversation Street - An AI-lluring road trip through the corners of chat with IBM Watson Assistant
César (@cvaldezr) worked as the technical lead for Red Hat Open Innovation Labs where he helped customers to build their services using Kubernetes/OpenShift. His hobbies include hacking with Node.js testing experimental ideas like executing Java code from Node.js, developing a WebGL graphics engine and writing containers from scratch to better understand the deep ways of the Linux kernel.
Talk Title: Create your own "Service Mesh" with Node.JS.
This talk is about how to use Node.JS to create a process/container to decorate existing applications that use a common protocol (like HTTP1, GRPC, etc..). The cool thing is that you can add/modify behavior in existing micro-services independently from their programming language and also it helps to understand what's the magic behind "service meshes" frameworks that are around this days.
