2 min read

This Monday, November 14 is the November Node.js meetup here in Washington, DC. These meetups bring together node.js developers and people interested in learning more about the server-side JavaScript environment, best known for its speed and flexibility, to talk, show off their work, and ask questions. As before, the meetup will feature a series of quick, five minute lightning talks on anything relating to node.js. This month, four people have volunteered to present:

  • Young Hahn will talk about CouchDB, an open source document-oriented database written mostly in Erlang, highlighting tricks and other useful things he’s learned about best utilizing it in conjunction with node.js.
  • Chris Verwymeren will talk about running node.js apps in Ubuntu with Upstart.
  • Aaron Silverman and Dylan Greene will demo their Node Knockout project DoodleOrDie, a drawing guessing game a la pictionary, explaining how they built it in just eight hours.
  • Justin Miller, in town from Portland, will talk about how he bridged Cocoa to node.js in the map design tool TileMill.

The meetup will be held in the upstairs bar at Stetson’s and will get started at 7:00 pm, with presentations starting at 7:30 pm after a round of introductions. The NodeDC group meets once a month, usually on the third Wednesday of the month. You can see what was discussed at past meetups at, and for updates follow @nodedc.
