Node.js Camp SF
Have you ever wondered what the hype around Node.js is all about, but just never found the time to dig in and understand it? Or have you started with Node.js, but just can't figure out how to get from API docs to a working program?
Node.js Camp is your chance to work directly with the creators of Node.js. At this all-day event, you will attend several hands-on workshops that will guide you from setting up a local development environment all the way to deploying your very own real-time game to the web. We will provide some libraries and sample code so you can hit the ground running. Our goal is to provide you with all the right tools so you can write your own browser-based or webOS game by the end of the day.
Line up of speakers and contributors includes Ryan Dahl, Isaac Schlueter, Tim Caswell, Guillermo Rauch, Paul Querna, Matt Ranney, Mikeal Rogers and more!
Paul Querna: Datagrams
Node is typically dealing with TCP protocols like HTTP. However, in addition to TCP streams Node can also speak in UDP datagram packets. These are useful for transmitting small chunks of data quickly and is particularly relevant for real-time programs. This talk will explain what UDP is and in which situations you'd want it.
Matt Ranney: Introduction to Redis
Redis is a small database useful for storing things like sessions. This talk will introduce you to Redis, why it's a useful piece of software, and how to connect to it using Node.
Mikeal Rogers: The CouchDB _changes Feed
The CouchDB document store is well suited to many CRUD style websites. However, a particularly interesting aspect of Couch is the _changes feed, which streams updates about what is going on inside the database. By using this feed with Node it is possible to push data to the browser in ways previously not possible.
