Node.js v0.10 Milestone Meetup - San Francisco
Thursday, April 25, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
Welcome to the Node.js v0.10 Milestone Meetup!
It’s 2013 and we’ve crossed the v0.10 milestone - let’s get down to business and talk Node.js. This dynamic runtime has gained incredible momentum since its start in 2009, and is being put to the test in large production environments by today’s modern applications.
Join Isaac Schlueter, the Node.js Gatekeeper, Matt Ranney, CTO of Voxer, and Jason Hoffman, CTO of Joyent, as they reflect on the Node.js roadmap with an eye towards v1.0.
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm Meet, greet & grub
7:00 pm Isaac Schlueter, Node.js Gatekeeper, Joyent
Node.js v0.10 and Beyond
Isaac will discuss the recent changes in Node, and the plans for the future as we get closer to version 1.0.
7:30 pm Matt Ranney, CTO, Voxer
Can You Count on Node?
Doing real work with something that's not yet at 1.0 sounds a bit scary. At Voxer, we've pushed node to its limits and beyond. We'll talk about how dependable node has been for us, and some of the challenges that remain.
8:00 pm Jason Hoffman, CTO, Joyent
node.js in context
Yes, people like to say node.js is a cool "hipster" framework, but it did oddly come out of an engineering team that predominantly codes in C and works on kernels and operating systems. Find out the driving factors around node.js evolution and the real reasons for Joyent's use.
