Hi Nodesters! I'm excited to bring us back together for some good food and talks on ***Tuesday, September 25th, 2018***. We've got a great line up for the evening:
**Franziska Hinkelmann - What's new in Node Core?**
Node 10 just entered Long Term Support (LTS). Let's look at some exciting new features and what the future holds for Node Core.
Franziska is a member of the Node.js Technical Steering Committee and an expert on ES6 performance. She has a Ph.D. in mathematics and is a software engineer at Google on the Cloud Platform team in New York City. Previously, she was on the Chrome V8 team. When she's not working hard on making Node.js better on the Cloud Platform, she's probably out riding horses.
**Andrew Houston-Floyd - Creating Collaborative Offline-First Apps**
"Offline-first" is a paradigm that seeks to maintain functionality for applications, even when clients go offline for extended periods. In-browser data storage is a solution, but synchronizing changes between clients adds another challenge. We'll review these problems and potential solutions.
**Aori Nevo - @devly, an ecosystem for streamlining app development setup processes**
There are a number of ways to install apps for local development including containers and virtual machines. Devly is neither a containerization nor a virtual machine solution; it is a command line utility, built on node, that installs apps locally - ready for use - in seconds. With Devly, developers can leverage the power of their host machine and avoid the complexities of mounting files and folders into guest operating systems.
Aori is the creator of @devly and several @devly plugins. He is also a contributor to several popular open source projects like yargs, foundation, slick-carousel, WeBWorK, and WordPress. Before starting his career as a software engineering, he was an academic. He earned his PhD from Stevens Institute of Technology in 2016. Before being an academic, he was an infantry solider in the US Army.
***Note on security***: As always, please ensure that you provide us with your full name when RSVPing with a Yes. Building security will need it to grant you access to the event.
