The Node.js Foundation is kicking off a series of global events bringing together local Node.js developers around the world.
Each event is different and tailored to the local community, varying in length and in some cases in partnership with local Node.js groups and users.
This event is being run in partnership with JS.LA.
We're still looking for sponsors. Contact us if you're interested.
February 24, 2016, 6:00-10:00pm
NodeTogether is an educational initiative to improve the diversity of the Node community by bringing people of underrepresented groups together to learn Node.js.
To learn more, and/or if you are interested in applying as a student, mentor, or sponsor, please visit http://www.nodetogether.org/.
|7:30pm||High performance apps with DoneJS||Justin Meyer|
|7:50pm||Reactive Programming for Couch Potatoes||Andrew Hao|
|8:10pm||You Don't Know npm||Ashley Williams|
|8:30pm||Docker for Node.js||Daniel Shaw|
|8:50pm||After Party!||Oxford Road|
After party is down the road at Oxford Road, 6430 Sunset Blvd. #600 Los Angeles CA 90028.
Oxford Road is a profitable startup that is growing rapidly. On behalf of disruptive brands, they decide which ads people see - when they see them - where they see them. In order to do this well they build high-performance systems for storing, processing, and manipulating large data sets. Their developers are passionate about two things: understanding mass media, and finding elegant solutions to engineering challenges.
Mikeal is the Community Manager of the Node.js Foundation and the creator of request and NodeConf.
His talk will be all about what the Foundation has been up to recently and its plans for the rest of 2016.
His talk shows how the recently released DoneJS framework makes it easy to build fast single page applications that are:
You will discover how DoneJS solves these problems while building a simple real-time chat application. As a bonus, Justin will show how to build the chat application to a mobile and desktop application so all three versions of the app can chat together. If there's time, he might even turn on worker thread rendering.
Andrew is a software developer at Carbon Five, a software development and product consultancy in Santa Monica. As a trail runner, he loves finding new routes for long runs in the mountains.
Andrew is speaking about functional reactive programming and how it's the bee's knees. But... you can't figure out how it works, and all the math-talk and theory jargon that surround the subject are confusing to you.
Fear not! Together, we'll go through the concepts of streams, functions, and data flow. We'll take the concepts apart with diagrams and explain them in plain English.
We'll even talk a little bit about how reactive programming concepts apply to real world frameworks like React, Redux, and Elm. In the end, you'll not only get up to speed about reactive programming, you'll be able to have new insights and tools to implement reactive principles in your next project.
Ashley, npm's Developer Community and Content Manager, gives a quick tour of npm’s greatest features, old and new, and demonstrates how they can be integrated into your workflow to make you better, happier, and more productive. Ashley will outline the most commonly used npm tools for starting a project, managing a project through development, test, and deployment, and managing teams and organization project work. She’ll focus in particular on workflows that will help frontend developers, npm’s biggest and fastest-growing group of users.
NodeSource maintains hundreds of unique platform Docker images of Node.js across linux distribution platforms and versions and Node.js versions. These are used as base images for Enterprise Node.js users and as an official service for NodeSource N|Support customers. We will share how we manage and test across all these permutations and why NodeSource recently dropped automated builds on Docker Hub.
All attendees, speakers, staff and sponsors are expected to follow the Code of Conduct.
