Greetings Nodesters, join us for our long overdue next meetup - Tuesday, December 8th. We’ve got three exciting talks planned, Pizza & Refreshments (courtesy of the fine folks at The Working Group), and Q&A sessions with presenters. We’ll be meeting from 6:30-8:30pm at The Working Group, 425 Adelaide St W #300.

Andrew Carreiro (@arcadeerrorwin), Platform Architect at Klick Health will be presenting ‘Building your own Slack bot on the modern AWS stack’. Hop on the Amazon Web Services hype train and learn how to make a serverless slack bot that runs for pennies per month with NodeJS and Amazon services like Lambda and API Gateway. With just a few steps we’ll be able to enter commands into slack and receive pre defined responses.

Adam Winick, Sr. Web/Mobile developer at Real Matters brings ‘Avoiding callback hell with promises’. He’ll be walking us through the concept of promises in node and presenting a scenario illustrating nested callback overload. Adam will then demonstrated the same scenario (much improved) using promises.

Rudolf Olah (@src_contribute) is a Fullstack Software Developer at CanadaHelps. Rudolf will be speaking about ‘Node.js as an API shim’, giving a tutorial on leveraging Node as an API shim between a java REST API and an AngularJS web app.

Slides and video will be shared on our website, after the event.

We're looking forward to seeing you all there, it's been a while :)
