Lightning Talks! Education, Enterprise Apps, Dasher, Oracle Drivers, and LSQ.io!

Wednesday 18 Mar 2015 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Hi Nodesters! This month we're going to fill our Meetup with as many Lightening Talks as we can. Here's our lineup so far!

Sue Zachman of ScriptEd - Give a kid their first opportunity on the road to a career in tech!

ScriptEd is a non-profit organization that places professional software developer volunteers in under-resourced NYC high school to teach a year-long web development class, and then arranges paid coding summer internships so students can work with role models in the field and gain the experience and confidence to pursue a career in tech. ScriptEd is looking for additional summer internship hosts, and Sue, ScriptEd's Director of Corporate Partnerships, will tell you more about how you and your company can get involved. 

Sam Elsamman and Building Enterprise Apps with Node!

Sam will be presenting on building an enterprise application with a nodejs + mongo stack. He'll cover understanding the nature of the application and how it affects how you go about building it, designing for performance, dealing with asynchronous behavior in complex logic.

Dirk McCormick takes us Behind the Scenes at Dasher!

Dasher Messenger delivers rich, dynamic messages in real time. Learn about the architecture that enables our users to edit or delete a message after it's been sent, send money, gifs and maps that update as you move, across web and apps.

Dan McGhan and the Oracle Database Node.js Driver

Oracle recently released an Oracle Database driver for Node.js. While relatively new, the driver already supports a variety of features including SQL & PL/SQL execution, bindings via JS objects or arrays, results as JS objects or arrays, transaction management, connection pooling, and more! The driver can be used with any edition of the Oracle Database, from the lightweight (and free) XE to the fully featured EE.

Antonio Pellegrino takes us Into the world of microservices with LSQ.io

Microservices have a lot of appeal with scaling, polyglotism, and being able to rapid release. But what is involved with building and using microservices is still to most developers unknown, while others have hacked together one-off solutions. LSQ has your back, with ways to get you started with building and managing your services..

***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.

Thanks to Shutterstock for hosting! It's going to be a great event! See you there!

- Matt
