How to CQRS and Making D3 Maps in Node!

Wednesday 17 Aug 2016 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm

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

Brad Oyler - Making D3 Maps in Node

Brad will take us through the process of why & how NBC renders their maps server-side for the 2016 election primaries. In doing so, he'll explain how d3-node was an important part!

Matt Walters - How to CQRS in Node

CQRS (Command Query Responsibility Segregation) is an architectural pattern that's talked about much and understood less. The gist of CQRS is that commands in your architecture are made differently than queries. The implication of this is that your entire architecture becomes unidirectional. No more request response models from simple APIs! How the heck do you build something like that? Despite being originally popularized in the .NET world over a decade ago, CQRS is making a comeback as unidirectional UI frameworks like Flux and Redux gain in popularity. If you're going to have a reactive, unidirectional user interface, why not have the same patterns reflected in your entire architecture? Matt will go over the tooling, patterns, and practices he's used to build CQRS architectures in marketing, finance, and more since he hopped on the Node bandwagon in 2011! 

***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!

See you there!
