Node / NoSQL Meetup Prep

From: Brian M.
Sent on: Monday, September 5, 2011 11:30 PM

Tomorrow's meetup should be fun -- looks like we're going to have our biggest group yet!

We just wanted to let everyone know that the demos presented will be highly interactive, and there will also be opportunities for a little independent hacking for anyone so inclined, so please bring a laptop if you're interested.  Even if you don't plan on doing any hacking, you'll still enjoy having your laptop or iPad with you for the demos... ;)

If you would like to participate in some hacking or run the demos yourself, read on -- otherwise, you may safely skip the rest of this email.

Most of the required setup for specific tools will be covered during the presentation, but for maximum efficiency it would be really great if you prepare beforehand by installing a few things on your own, if needed. These will take a few minutes to install, and the steps can vary depending on your specific OS / environment:

(FYI, life will be best for those on OSX or Linux -- Windows support, while it might work, is very much lacking at this time in the Node world. YMMV.)

  • Install Python 2.6 or higher
    Optional - only needed if you are going to build Node or its libraries from source.
  • Install NodeJS
    This is the base framework, required for all demos. Installation instructions
  • Install npm (Node package manager)
    This is required to install all other node libs that will be used. Installation instructions

Once you have these tools working, installing other libs via npm is a piece of cake, and we'll cover all of that in the presentation. Thanks for reading this far, and we'll see you at the meetup!
