NodeJS Workshop #1

March 25, 2014

Every other month we’re doing workshops with various technologies starting with NodeJS. For March, we’ll be going through NodeSchool.IO’s “Learn Node” module. This covers an introduction to nodejs from console.log through making asynchronous http requests. Josh Broton, Seth Larson, and other members will be available to help people through any problems they run across. Attendees do have to supply their own computer(or pair with someone else who did). If you attended our test run of this in January and completed Learn Node feel free to move on to Stream Adventure, Async, or one of the other modules. Read more about NodeJS Workshop #1

Apigility: Agile APIs w/ Matthew Weier O'Phinney

February 25, 2014

You’re making the move to APIs – you have a mobile application, or you need to enable cross-organizational access to your data, or because you have an idea for a cool single page web application. Now you’re mired in learning everything you can about web services, and discovering that APIs pose a whole set of challenges discrete from your web applications: what response format should you use? how will you report errors?

put the dev into ops (chef/vagrant)

July 16, 2013

An overview of the community edition of Chef by OpsCode and creating loval environments with it(15-45 minutes). Following discussion on how we(and you) go about making deploying updates an easy and seamless operation, at least as seamless as organization processes allow. If anyone has used Puppet I’d love for input from them in how it compares/contrasts to Chef. Any other deployment tools would also be open for discussion. Capistrano, Fabric, PSake are a few I’m familiar with that come to mind. Read more about put the dev into ops (chef/vagrant)
