This Meetup is past

40 people went


Greetings Nodesters, we've got another meetup just around the corner, with two great speakers on deck. Anson MacKeracher VP of Technology at Top Hat ( Monocle, and Serge Bornow ( Senior Engineer at InPowered will be speaking at this event. We're meeting Tuesday June 4th 7pm at Extreme Startups (Queen & Bathurst).

Here's an overview of the talks:

Anson MacKeracher - Threaded and Evented: Bacon and Eggs

How can the evented nature of Node.js augment a traditional threaded stack to get a) asynchronous messaging from server to client b) clean REST APIs and c) easy barrier of entry for Django/Rails developers? Cottontail, a message routing middleware developed at Top Hat, explores this space.

Serge Bornow - Speeding up Node with the Cluster API

We'll explore the Cluster API of NodeJS, demonstrating how to spread worker processes across multiple cores to get things done faster and in parallel. We'll investigate a practical example of the Cluster API using PhantomJS.

Each talk will be followed by a brief Q&A session, and there will be an opportunity to network after the talks. Looking forward to seeing you all there.
