Spike Brehm (https://github.com/spikebrehm) from Airbnb (https://plus.google.com/104921152556362912598/about?gl=us&hl=en) will talk about why they built Rendr (https://github.com/airbnb/rendr) and show how it allows them to strike the proper balance between snappiness and feature-set. Rendr is powered by Node.js and Backbone, integrates with an existing Airbnb infrastructure and uses some interesting techniques to ensure the Airbnb site is fast, powerful and friendly to search engines.
Airbnb's in-house chefs will be cooking food, and beer and other beverages will be provided. Matt from StrongLoop (https://twitter.com/matt_pardee), the new organizer of the group, will kick things off by previewing upcoming plans for the group and talk about how we can continue to provide fantastic talks to the Node community.
