Dead-simple Async Control Flow with Coroutines, Koa and More~

Wednesday 19 Aug 2015 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Hi Nodesters! We've got a feature talk this month!

Feature Talk - Travis Kaufman - Dead-simple Async Control Flow with Coroutines

Coroutines are extremely powerful constructs that make writing asynchronous code dead simple. In this talk, we'll go over how we can implement coroutines in ES6 using generators and promises, as well as tools and libraries that allow you to leverage coroutines today. We'll also walk through some sample use cases that showcase the power of coroutines.

Lightning Talk - Jimmy Farrell - Downstream and Upstream Request Flow with the Koa Web Framework

Express.js has become the default Node.js web application framework. But that doesn’t mean it is the only technology that developers can use, nor is it always the best solution for Node developers. Koa, started in 2013, is a lightweight web application framework that is unique in its use of ES6 generators in its architecture. This talk will give a brief introduction to Koa as an alternative to Express. 

Lightning Talk - Eddie Zaneski - A Glance at the ES6 Tooling of Today

Even though the ECMAScript 2015 (ES6) specification was recently finalized, it will be a while before there is widespread browser adoption. The community has developed some pretty awesome tools to get the JavaScript oftomorrow running today. We'll take a quick look at Babel, Webpack, and JSPM to get up and running.
