The second event will focus on a number of areas and should provide attendees with a solid base on how node works; where node fits and where it doesn't. There are some links here if you would like to learn how to node. Check them out if you would like to be ready to get the max out of the event.
If you would like to get deeper into node, we're going to announce an open source project on the 28th which will help you to get practical experience in node.js; work with the experts to build something new.
On the night we have the following line up:
To Start: Oisin Hurley (Converser) & Anton Whalley (nearForm) are going to do a rapid fire session on why node and why not node; this session will be fully open to the audience and encourages audience participation.
Next: Micheil Smith (State) from the UK will talk about real time web, web sockets and node.js. This session will explain what real-time web is, why we need it, why node.js is great for it, and how to get started!
Next: Peter Martischka (Yammer) from the UK will talk about his project Etherpad lite: a really-real time collaborative editor spawned from the Hell fire of Etherpad. The project reuses the well tested Etherpad easysync library to make it really realtime. Etherpad Lite is based on node.js ergo is much lighter and more stable than the original Etherpad. A smaller, manageable and well documented codebase makes it easier for developers to improve the code and contribute towards the project.
Next: Break with a well deserved sampling of gourmet Beer and Pizza :) !
Next: Isaac Schlueter (Joyent) on live stream from the USA. Isaac is the maintainer of the node.js project. Isaac will talk about the state of the Node project and ecosystem. Isaac's talk will be followed by a question and answer session.
