Join us Tuesday Nov 18th for the Fall 2014 Node.js meetup. We've got three great speakers, and a new venue courtesy of Opencare ( and One Eleven (

Here are the talks for this event:

Docker, Dashboards & Node - Mario Pareja ( from 360incentives ( will talk about how 360 leveraged Docker ( to distribute their production application coupled with a customized metrics dashboard app. Mario will explain the importance of the dashboard view at development time and how simple it was for 360 to run a production-like world on a laptop by leveraging Docker. Mario's goal is for everyone to leave the talk with practical examples and the confidence to leverage Docker to create and tear-down their own production-like worlds.

An Intro to Sails.js - Lee Rosen from Opencare will discuss why you should consider the Sails.js framework (, and demonstrate how to quickly create a backend app from scratch. He'll also discuss real-world tips and limitations, new features like associations, and what the future of Sails looks like.

Using Node.js to Replace Legacy Presentation Technology - Node.js provides an active and modern platform for application development that focuses on new approaches for delivering applications. AudienceView ( is an web based provider of eCommerce solutions for the entertainment market implemented using classic ASP technology.

After a review of current technologies, AudienceView initiated a project this summer to use Node.js to completely reinvent the way they deliver software. Geoff Wells, CTO and Cory Serratore, architect will review the challenges of using Node.js to replace the ASP technology stack. The presentation will focus on the challenges faced in the implementation including:

· Enabling the technology transition while continuing to deliver new functionality

· Converting ASP multi-threading to Node.js event queuing

· Providing support for application session management

· Interfacing between Node.js and legacy C++ business logic

· Seamlessly bridging new technology patterns with the existing application capabilities

We're looking forward to seeing everyone again on Tuesday Nov 18th. Please forward the invite along to anyone you think might be interested in joining the Toronto Node community.
