This month we're joining forces with the folks from DC jQuery (http://www.meetup.com/DC-jQuery-Users-Group/) for a joint meetup on Monday, February 20 starting at 7:00 pm. This month we'll be at Fathom Creative at[masked]th Street NW (at Rhode Island). We have three speakers on the lineup so far.

Jafar Amjad (https://twitter.com/#!/jafaramjad) will present on making a Node.js multplayer site, specifically one that uses a low amount of bandwidth per player and features lasers, gravity, and walk cycles via animated gif's. Check out his early beta version (http://jaf.ar.com) for a preview. Ryan Roemer (https://twitter.com/#!/ryan_roemer) will talk about async.js (https://github.com/caolan/async). Dylan Greene (https://twitter.com/#!/dylang) will present HTML Canvas while giving a jaw-dropping DoodleOrDie (http://doodleordie.com/) demo. The monthly NodeDC meetups bring together developers to talk about node.js and are a great opportunity to meet other developers, learn more about node, and see some examples of how people are using it. Everyone is welcome.

NodeDC meets once a month, usually on the third Monday of the month. For updates watch us on nodedc.github.com (http://nodedc.github.com/), follow @nodedc (https://twitter.com/#!/nodedc), and sign up for updates here. Hope to see you there!
