Building Decentralized Applications in Node.js + WorkWork with WebWorkers!

Wednesday 19 Oct 2016 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Hi Nodesters! We've got great talks this month! NOTE THE LOCATION at Shutterstock!!!*

William Blankenship - Building Decentralized applications in Node.js

The future is decentralized. The building blocks for decentralized applications exist in Node.js modules today. In this talk, we will introduce these building blocks and how you can use them in your applications. At the end of this talk, we will demo PeerWeb, a decentralized web browser built using Node.js and electron, and we will show how anybody can deploy static websites to the decentralized web today. 

Jonathan Rim - workwork.js, run Javascript array methods concurrently on the browser

workwork.js is a library that uses HTML5 web workers and some parsing with RegExs. This allows the user to run computation-heavy algorithms or tasks concurrently on an array in an HTML script. By running the algorithms on each element in the array (choosing methods such as reduce and map), the user saves a lot of dead time and prevents the browser from crashing. 

Glenn Hinks - Document DBs: A Cautionary Tale

Why I decided that perhaps my non relational database was being used to store relational data, what I did to fix it and why I now use both mongodb and postgresql!

More Lightning Talks Spots Available! Reach out with topics to present!

***Note on security***: As always, please ensure your full name is listed on your Meetup profile, if you RSVP yes to join. Building security will need it to grant you access to the event.

We'll be at Shutterstock this month. Thanks to Shutterstock for hosting! It's going to be a great event!
