Come enjoy drinks and food and listen to how awesome Node.js is.
Andrew Carlson, developer at Salesvue LLC, will be talking about using Node.js to handle large amounts of web scraping. Andrew programs in Java by day and Node.js by night. Here's a little bit more from him on the talk.
"We all know that Node.js is great at handling large numbers of incoming HTTP requests. It's also great at generating a large number of concurrent outgoing requests. As a practical example of this I will be demonstrating a web scraping Node.js app which pulls in auto dealer inventory at a national level." ===========
At the end of the main talk, we'll also have time for anyone who wants to show off anything they've been doing with Node.js.
