Many frameworks have been created to allow you to build apps on Node.js - Express, Matador, and Flatiron to name a few. But none of these frameworks are built with development velocity, backwards compatibility, and speed. This is where Geddy steps in. Geddy is a framework built and battle tested by the JS team at Yammer. It's currently running our upload service. During this talk I'll walk you through building a basic web app with geddy, and show you how we used it to build a prototype mobile site for Yammer in less than 12 hours.
NoSQL databases are fun, and we've all wired up a Node.js project to use one. But what about two? What about three?
That's what's on the docket for this talk. We'll do all the things:
Walk through a (very) quick intro on CouchDB, Neo4j, and Redis. Then learn how to interact with these very different databases using Node.js. Then wire them up into a single web application (using Bricks.js, for good measure) Write it all in CoffeeScript... buzzword overload!!! If you do not walk out of this talk excited and maybe a little confused, I will have failed.
Bricks.js is fast modular framework built on node.js. This session will be a mix of an introduction for those who have not used it, and building a fairly simple application using it.
