How Artsy Introduced Node.js and Isomorphic Javascript

Wednesday 30 Jul 2014 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm

This month, Craig Spaeth and Brennan Moore will be joining us to present on discoveries made while adopting Node at Artsy.

Artsy transitioned from a monolithic Ruby on Rails stack to a distributed system with Node.js apps that share code and rendering between the server and browser - otherwise known as Isomorphic Javascript. Because of this we've seen many improvements in performance and productivity. We've even open sourced our learnings into a boilerplate project called Ezel. In this talk we'll cover how we managed the transition as well as diving into some code showing how Ezel and these new isomorphic apps work.
