Next Meetup

Isomorphic Apps, Relay + Postgraphile, Serverless-ish
Hi Nodesters! We've got great talks this month! NOTE THE LOCATION at Shutterstock!!!* We've got spots left to fill this month, so please reach out and hop in front of the group! **John Vaghi - Through the last two years of isomorphic** From jury-rigging Laravel + Angular 1.6 to NextJS apps that feel way more stable, server-rendered SPAs have come a long way over the (last two) years. Lets quickly walk through where we've been, what we've learned, and where we still need to go concerning this oft-misunderstood architecture. **Chad Furman - Ship Faster. Avoid Tech Debt. A Recipe** Have you had to build production-ready APIs in a short amount of time while avoiding technical debt at all costs? The challenge of real-world development comes from needing to add value to a project quickly -- both right at the start and as the project continues to grow. As a solution, we explore both Facebook’s Relay Modern and the open-source library Postgraphile with NodeJS. **Pat Scott - Serverless-ish** The goals of serverless/FaaS are ease of operations, and cost savings, but come with their own shortcomings, such as difficulty testing e2e systems and developer tooling. Can we achieve the same benefits without serverless? Learn how Patrick and his team are using queue-based autoscaling microservices to do just that. ***Note on security***: As always, please ensure your full name is listed on your Meetup profile, if you RSVP yes to join. Building security will need it to grant you access to the event. We'll be at Shutterstock this month. Thanks to Shutterstock for hosting! It's going to be a great event! See you there! -Lalit
