April's NodeUpNorth marks our first birthday...

So this month we have two great speakers and more prizes, lots of food and drink, you'd be mad to miss out.

Our first speaker is Dan Spencer who will be talking to us about TypeScript (http://www.typescriptlang.org/). Dan will cover:

• The basics of TypeScript

• How he uses it in a Node environment

• Why it's a valuable tool for Node applications

Dan (@dan_spencer (https://www.twitter.com/dan_spencer)) is a Leeds based PHP & JS developer. Check out his Github (https://github.com/danrspencer)

And as if that wasn't enough we're also joined by Chris Manson (@real_ate (https://www.twitter.com/real_ate)), CTO of startup Bloo.ie (http://www.bloo.ie). Bloo.ie are a startup that build exclusively in full stack Javascript. Chris will talk to us about Express Autoroute: 2 helper npm modules that Bloo.ie have contributed for making Express routes a breeze. Chris is a confirmed fan of EmberJS (http://emberjs.com/).

Chris will talk about why he and his team created Express Autoroute and how it can be used to clean up your Express applications.

He will also cover Bloo.ie's preference for Convention over Configuration and why they find highly opinionated libraries really helps development in any size team.

As ever there will be food, drink and prizes and a fantastic community of like minded developers all keen to learn more about Node.js

Please note the group is intended for developers looking to expand their knowledge in a recruiter free zone only so whilst interest from recruitment consultants is nice we have a no recruiters policy.
