We'll talk about coding best practices for Nodejs development.

I plan on coming next month with a raspberry pi running Node.js doing something awesome. I'll likely also be using Node.js to control an arduino. You can find more information with the following links. Or buy your own to play with! They're super inexpensive and fun to create with.

That's great. Which of the two would you recommend as a first toy? Happy T-day.
It's harder to get ahold of a raspberry pi - they're always on back order.
Ah. If you're willing to pay just a smidge more (like $5 or so) for one now, you can order one from http://adafruit.com for raspberry pi and any of their accessories. (plus it would help them recover from super storm Sandy's impact).

Great. I was thinking of maybe grabbing this... thoughts? http://www.mcmelectro...

Make sure to research the revision of the board you're buying. Some of them had power issues. The latest board has resolved most of these problems.

It was a really good discussion yesterday not only for node coders but also for all developers.I know that in the end we voted on a number of topics that will be discussed weeks to come but just wanted to know if there can be one more discussion - 'Security in Node'?
Please excuse if this is not the right question to ask, I haven't done much coding on node.
Since security can be a broad topic, are there particular areas you are interested in? Encrypting HTTP traffic with HTTPS. Adding authentication/authorization to nodejs web apps. Something else?
Yes, UTF8 encoding and channeling on HTTP/HTTPS traffic. Also, how to write secure code so as to prevent script injection attacks...dealing with untrusted user code...creating secure transmission, etc. That'd be really nice!
Was informative and interactive.

So much great info in such a short amount of time.
Great first meeting for me. It ran long, but that's because there was much to discuss.
Seriously, I love it despite the lack of documentation: http://www.socketstream.org/
To me it's express.js for sockets; get stuff done and let the magic happen (although it's probably it's probably a good idea to read the source-code)
There is also: http://meteor.com/
I love the open dialog
It was good to hear how others are structuring their code.
Great ideas and people! Can't wait till next one!
So sorry I had to run early, there was some fascinating discussion going on. Much thanks to the people who organized and contributed.

Warning: this is mostly client-side JS, but it could really help if you have a heavy front-end that needs to be flexible to deployment-environment.

would love to come, I am just having a hard time finding a ride from topeka.
Tonight's meetup is at VML's Downtown Airport location:http://www.vml.com/contact-us#kansas-city-mo-global-headquarters
Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/qk8H0Address: 250 Northwest Richards Road Kansas City, MO 64116
Most, if not all doors are locked by key-card entry after 5pm, so I will try to be at the front door to let everyone in and point you to the conference room we will occupy - it's called "The Dreamliner" if you happen to know your way around.
VML would be willing to host.

We're actually still nailing down a location. If you know of a place, let us know!
If we need a food sponsor, let me know. @KeyholeSoftware can provide pizza.
Maybe check to see if the Google Fiber space is available?
We've worked with Google Fiber in the past, and they've typically worked on a ~3 weeks out schedule. Thanks to Russell, we'll be having this month's meetup at VML.
Might want to check the KU Edwards campus too. But it's pretty short notice..
