We've got a great meetup scheduled for you, we're going to be diving into practical examples of Node. Two brilliant presenters, Geoff Flarity from Well.ca, and Laura Doktorova from Bebedo.com, will be demonstrating their open source contributions.
Geoff Flarity (@gflarity), who graciously organizes our space at CSI each month, will be presenting one of his personal projects, QDis.
QDis is a simple durable fanout pub/sub queue built using Redis and Node.JS. Simplicity is it's goal and advantage. To publish you use the Redis API, first you start a transaction using MULTI then LPUSH to a list, then PUBLISH on a channel to announce something new is available. Run EXEC to execute the transaction. Consuming is handled in a similar manner. Finally, QDis (node.js) listens and handles the fanout operations behind the scenes.
We're looking forward to seeing everyone at 7pm at CSI Annex, followed by social drinks at Paupers Pub on Bloor.
