Upcoming Node.js Talk (September 30th) by @dshaw


When: September 30th, 5:30 PM

Where: Room G84 Engineering Sciences Building

Node.js is event-driven, asynchronous by design, JavaScript on the server.

Node.js has been described by some as the second coming, has been hinted to cure cancer, E.D. and dyspepsia. This might be true for some, but the most important and exciting aspect about Node is the zero-resistance development and deployment cycle. Plus, it’s super fun. At this talk we’ll explore how to setup Node on Linux or Mac in seconds, where to get started and how to contribute. We’ll poke at some code, pressure test Web Sockets and maybe even play a little Battleship. (Bring your laptop.)

Daniel Shaw (@dshaw) was the WVU ACM treasurer a few years ago and is responsible for setting up, managing the WVU ACM Alumni list on LinkedIn and generally pushing the WVU ACM chapter onto a modern platform of technologies. @dshaw is a polyglot programmer who’s coded in most languages that produce web pages, but he’s currently head over heels in love with JavaScript and and is totally smitten with the end-to-end JavaScript development life cycle Node.js creates.
