Greetings Nodesters,

Join us for an evening of engaging talks hosted at The Working Group (Adelaide and Spadina). Doors open at 6:30, and we'll be kicking the talks off at 6:45 pm. Here are the details:

Sam Roberts (@octetcloud), Node/Ops developer at StrongLoop (, an IBM Company, will be giving a session on some of the pitfalls in the Node.js core API, how to avoid them, and a discussion of whether they can or should be fixed. Sam will discuss why these APIs behave the way they do and how they might be changed, along with the arguments for keeping them the same.

Ahmad Nassri (@ahmadnassri), VP of Engineering at Mashape (, a San Francisco based startup focused on powering API driven software. He will be walking us through building and publishing modules with ES2015, covering everything from transpiler choices, testing, and publishing on npm.

Spencer Kelly (@spencermountain), freelance web developer, will be discussing his library nlp_compromise ( He recently shared this at the GOTO conference in Chicago, and it has gotten a lot of attention for doing Natural Language Processing in the Browser. He’ll be demonstrating some of the pros and cons of nlp_compromise.
