Building AJAX APIs w/ Node.js & Redis AND Real-Time Metrics w/ Rickshaw & Node
Wednesday 15 Aug 2012 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm
We have a double feature this month!
Building AJAX APIs w/ Node.js & Redis
Whether you are building a new application from scratch or refactoring an existing application, designing a RESTful API has pretty much become a mandatory functional spec these days. The presenter will discuss how he built a RESTful API leveraging Node.js and Redis. A retrospective analysis of things like tooling, testing, surprises and gotcha's will also be reviewed.
Real-Time Metrics w/ Rickshaw & Node
It makes a big difference to be able to see change as it happens. In this talk we'll take a tour of open-source tools that let us aggregate and visualize client-side and server-side events for real-time analytics and monitoring.
