Greetings Nodesters, we've got another meetup just around the corner with two great speakers on deck: Matt Sergeant the creator of Haraka the open-source SMTP server used by Craigslist, and Gareth Marland Senior Developer at Rand Worldwide. We'll be holding the meetup at InPowered (King & Duncan), courtesy of Serge Bornow.
Matt Sergeant - Converting a large size Rails application to Node.js
This talk will cover the various aspects of converting a large scale project from Rails+Angular to Node+Angular, including: Why?, HAML to Jade conversion, SASS/SCSS delivery, Sidekiq workers, creating a data access layer from scratch, and live deployment scenarios.
Gareth Marland - Websockets with Node.js
Easily implemented websockets are the dream, but reality can prove a bit more difficult. This talk will explain how to build reliable and scalable websockets in a hosted environment.
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.
