Redux to centralize the state of RT multiplayer gaming & Swagger: Stuff for Free

Wednesday 22 Jun 2016 from 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Hi Nodesters! We've got great talks this month!

* NOTE THE LOCATION at Shutterstock!!!*

Dan Oved - Using Redux on the server to centralize the state of a real-time multiplayer gaming platform.

In this talk Dan will go over how we use redux on the server for The Pursuit by Equinox - a gamified spinning class that uses 500,000 points of data in real-time to visualize performance and drive competition. He'll tell how they took over a legacy application built on Node.js, jquery, and webgl, that had state scattered everywhere and converted it to use a single-directional data flow using reactive extensions and redux on the server, with state changes fed in real time to React DOM and WebGL components on the client.

James Vivian - Swagger Stuff for Free

A way to describe REST APIs in JSON, Swagger is a common vendor-neutral format with a growing ecosystem of open-source tools. Adopting Swagger can liberate developers from many commonly repeated tasks and empower them to focus on what an API should do, not how.

Shutterstock is in the final stages of moving from monolithic applications to a services-oriented platform. The tech organization has seized the opportunity to address common pain-points following this change and Swagger is filling one of those needs. Join James Vivian for a review of the Swagger Specification and a discussion of how Shutterstock tech is scaling the adoption of Swagger and related tooling across service and feature teams.

Additional spots available. Reach out with topics to present!
