Node.js in Production & Lightning Talks

The Seattle Node.js Meetup group is kicking things into gear with our next event, scheduled for Wednesday, May 8 and hosted downtown at the SURF Incubator. We’ll have pizza, beers, talks, and lightning talks to get you socializing, listening, and talking about all things Node.js.

We’re also launching a new group website at, hosted at our GitHub repository, for additional articles, posts, and information from the local Node.js community. And, we’ve started a new Twitter account, @seattlenode, which we hope you’ll follow.


  • 6:30 - 7:00pm: Start with pizza and beer, courtesy of MovingWorlds.
  • 7:00pm - 7:30pm: Ryan Roemer will present a talk on "Node.js in Production". Ryan will discuss the good, the bad, and the ugly technical details of running Node.js services for the world’s largest Spanish learning website,
  • 7:30pm - on: We will turn the rest of our time over to the group for a series of lightning talks. Please bring your ideas and projects to share with the group!


The SURF Incubator is in the Exchange building at: 821 Second Ave., Seattle, WA 98104. Updated Note - the event will be held on the 8th floor (we temporarily changed this, but we're back to the original now) in SURF's office.

See SURF's location page for additional details. The Exchange building closes at 6:00pm, so we will have meetup members helping out to get you inside for the presentations. Please message the meetup page or email [masked] if you are having any difficulties getting in.


MovingWorlds is a cross between the Peace Corps and, helping people get connected to the best place around the world to donate their expertise - go Experteering - in exchange for a life-enriching experience (and usually free accommodations, too). MovingWorlds just won the NWEN First Look Forum, is opening an angel round in the coming months with a lead investor already committed, and is looking for a technical co-founder.

    Really enjoyed the talks, which were presented and organized very well giving very sufficient detail. Also, some of the speakers mentioned contributing to Node.js related open source projects. I'm interested. Let me know - send me a private message.

      This one: http://en.parkopedia....­. But it looks like the price is higher than I thought. For some reason I thought it was less expensive in the evening.
