Meetup: October 22, 2015

On October 22, 2015 we would like to invite you to our next community meetup of the Munich Node.JS User Group. Please sign up on Meetup to give us a hint how many nodehackers are coming!


On October 22, 2015 we have the following schedule:

  • 19:00: Beer & Pizza
    sponsored by TNG Technology Consulting

  • 20:00: One ring to rule them all
    by Golo Roden

    Making computers talk to each other over the network is simple: You have a server, and you have clients. But what if you want to make them talk to each other without having a server, more like ... coequal peers? What you need is a decentralized network that works autonomously, that can handle appearance and disappearance of arbitrary peers at any point in time, and that does not require a degree in rocket-science. Golo Roden will tell (and show!) you how to do that with pure JavaScript - and what you have to watch out for.

  • 21:15: A Trip to the Zoo: SpiderMonkey, SquirrelFish, Nashorn, and V8
    by Franziska Hinkelmann

    Do you know how JavaScript engines work and why they are so blazingly fast?

    Learn about the fundamentals like abstract syntax tree, opcodes, and just-in-time compilation. JavaScript code can be almost as fast as native C++ code. How do engines accomplish this? Lets look into optimization techniques including hidden classes, inline caching, and ahead-of-time compilation, which, if applied correctly, will give your code a turbo boost.

    Understand the inner workings of JavaScript engines and learn by examples how to write faster code.

  • 22:45: Close down of MNUG meetup
