Learn some NodeJS

Brian Parks is going to lead a discussion about NodeJS.

    As a follow-up, during the talk I mentioned some of the average usage statistics on my Goggles project and mentioned that the load on the server was virtually imperceptible. Yesterday, Goggles experienced traffic two orders of magnitude higher (5.2 million requests from 23,447 unique users) and the load on the server was between 60% and 90%, while fielding between 75 and 275 requests per second. In short, I'm glad Goggles is written using NodeJS and not anything else.

    Brian did a nice job explaining nodejs where even a novice like me was able to follow along. I liked how he answered my questions and was very patient.

    As promised, code is posted to github. In case I somehow screwed up the link in the slides, here it is again: https://github.com/bparks/node-demo

    A useful introduction and opportunity for input on other points of view for practical use.

    I recorded my screen and voice tonight during the meetup. It's currently uploading to YouTube (give it approx. an hour to finish) at http://youtu.be/Hnt03hiEV-M. The audio is tolerable. My voice comes through fine, but many of the questions are quiet or even lost completely.

    I uploaded the slides I'll use tonight to the "Files" section of our meetup. Direct link: http://files.meetup.com/13262772/node.js%20presentation.pdf

    How long will the session be? I would need to leave by 8pm. I don't want to miss anything.

      I can certainly talk for two hours but I don't plan on it. My goal is to introduce node.js over an hour or less and then open up the discussion to the group.

    Will we be recording this in any way? Posting slides, video, etc?

    April 22, 2014

    • Anthony

      I can bring a camera to record. May try to find a better mic too.

      April 22, 2014

    • Brian P.

      Cool. If you do that, I can splice the two together and maybe we can make it look somewhat professional...

    Holy cow. People are coming out of the woodwork for this one! I hope we'll have enough room! :)

    I'm bummed I have to miss this. Flying out to the Frontend Ops conference that night.

    I've got a little Grunt project started and plan on using some mapping API (Mapbox, OSM, etc) to have a minimal, single page site with floating interactivity "windows". I forgot how much I dislike CSS.
