  • Summer edition of the Node.js SF Meetup, hosted by Heroku

    Join us for a special summer edition of the Node.js SF Meetup, hosted by Heroku. There will be happy hour snacks and drinks, followed by a technical presentation by Heroku Developer Advocate, Chris Castle. Here's an overview of his presentation, titled: "Corporate Accounts Payable, Nina Speaking, Just a Moment..." Many developers abhor "process". The mere mention of the word stirs up Office Space-esque nightmares. I used to be like this. I would have an internal toddler temper tantrum when I heard "we're changing the code review process" or even worse "we're adding some new process". Then I made peace with the process gods, realizing they truly are here to help us. Come learn how to make your team's Node development, testing, deployment, and monitoring process actually make everyone happier and more efficient. We also like to give back to the Node community, so one lucky person will be chosen at random and receive $500 to donate to the Node Open Source project of their choice, by completing a quick online survey. The winner will be announced at the end of the Meetup. For this event Heroku needs attendees to sign an NDA. You can see a preview of that here (https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2TSXX5Mp9UYRXRxajVJZ3Z3UTQyenRMdVdtQzlJVEVJa3Vj/view?ts=57852b46) and print out+sign beforehand or sign on premise. About Heroku Heroku, a Salesforce company and industry pioneer in platform as a service (PaaS), enables developers to build and run applications entirely in the cloud, without the need to purchase or maintain any servers or software. With Heroku you can focus on your app, not your infrastructure. Learn more at https://www.heroku.com/nodejs
