    And last but not least reading to get started with JS:

    http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/JavaScript%3A-Good-Parts-Douglas-Crockford/9780596517748
    http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Functional-JavaScript-Michael-Fogus/9781449360726
    http://www.bookdepository.co.uk/Learning-JavaScript-Design-Patterns-Addy-Osmani/9781449331818 (I'm not done with this one yet but am enjoying it so far)

    They're not affiliate links, Book Depository just seem to use ISBNs so their URLs are a bit ugly... You can probably get them cheaper if you need to also, on O'Reilly with a coupon code or Amazon if you're ordering other stuff and bundle delivery.

      Hi Chris, the one I was talking about in terms of core concepts is here: http://citeseerx.ist....­

      I think a lot of their ideas around addressing the problem are quite different but it's where I picked up a lot of the concepts - their recommendations around how to address these things are really interesting but perhaps a bit further away yet.

      The underlying essential vs. accidental issue is apparently older, though I must admit to not having seen it before (despite being quite a fan of MMM!) and the conclusions differ: http://citeseerx.ist....­

      In terms of actual implementations I still don't really have any solid views yet, I'll be sure to let everyone know when I do. :)

    Andrew Jarocki - you mentioned that it's possible to have skype presentation ( @cianomaidin ? ) What is others opinion - is it good format? I'm very keen to give it a try (maybe have one of next meetups same day as brisjs / sydjs and use g+ hangouts?)

    Thanks @jaylynch for awesome talk - this is something I really like to see at local meetups, not the "how to use technology XYZ" like I did :)

    Interesting to see this presentation again in few month and see what is changed.

      Thanks to everyone for listening to my rambling! I'll keep it in mind and do an update once we're live... fingers crossed for now.

      Don't be ridiculous either, I think you're doing a great job filtering the firehose of new node developments down to interesting, quality ones that people might actually find useful, I know I've found it very helpful a few times now so keep at it! :)

    @jaylynch Based on what you were saying yesterday about language safety, you may find typescript a good fit, http://www.typescriptlang.org/

    Great night, thanks all who came! Nice to see a lot of new faces too, great to meet you all! :)

    Bit of follow-up from a few conversations I didn't have links on hand for...

    Code hotswapping in the JVM: http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.4.2/docs/guide/jpda/enhancements.html#hotswap (Apparently it's actually fairly limited but there are quite a few extensions and customizations that do it, including most of the big IDEs and things like http://ssw.jku.at/dcevm/)

    Seeing that project from Andrey makes me want to put something on Github again..... long overdue!

    I love the catering and the content.

    it definitely save me lots of time to see the glimps of nodejs from the real experience people.

    thanks for organising this

    really appreciated
