Meetup: December 10, 2015

On December 10, 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!

Attention! We start already at 6pm.


On December 10, 2015 we have the following schedule:

  • 17:30: Door open

  • 18:00: Implementing Websockets in Nodejs
    by Bodo Kaiser

    Overview and discussion of implementation details of the Websockets protocol with live coding in between. Video, slides, and code

  • 18:45: Node.js PaaS
    by Jonas Woerlein

    This talk provides an overview of publicly available Platform as a Service offerings to easily deploy Node.js applications to the cloud. Selected ones are described in detail and I will demo the deployment of a small application to the platform of my choice. The starting point of this talk was my struggle to find a good provider where I could host a small side project of mine permanently at no cost. Thus, the talk focuses on features relevant for development and keeps operations out of scope. Video

  • 19:15: Break with Beer & Food
    sponsored by TNG Technology Consulting

  • 20:00: IoT Chess
    by Lars Gregori

    The Internet of Things (IoT) connects things with the internet and a chess board is also a thing. This talk gives a technical overview and shows how I've done it. You will hear buzzwords like NFC, Microcontroller, MQTT, Node-RED and of course Node.js :) Video

  • 20:25: How we automated API growth with microservices
    by Jesús Darío Rivera

    To allow communication for vendor independant devices is hard. A single API may not work for many resources and so for a developer is imposible to create apps cross-target. This refers to an app, that independently of the hardware that is running on, has another device or resource as a target, that may have an unknown API.

    To solve this problem in Netbeast we have created both an API and an API engine. The API engine is a structure that allows an API to be extended with microservices, that declare themselves as part of a major application and run on a different process. The API itself is the interface that the engine provides to developers to make use of the mesh of microservices that are behind.

    This structure runs like a whole thing. Whenever an error comes primitives might be dispatched from different microservices and those may implement different capabilities and remain secret not only for the user, but for the developer that make use of them. This is a flexible way to create massive applications that evolve with time, like building blocks for software.

    During the talk we are going to describe the system from outside to inside. This is yet another approach for microservices, that is more about implementation than configuration. Video

  • 21:00: Hyperdrive - a p2p file sharing network
    by Mathias Buus Madsen

    Hyperdrive is a new project that is best described as a p2p open source dropbox build in javascript. It combines a variety of interesting algorithms to support features such as, delta updates, file deduplication and is completely decentralized with no single points of failures. This talk will be a brief introduction to how it works and live demos showcasing some the applications you can use this for. Video

  • Bonus track: How To Write Your Own Filesystem In Javascript by Mathias Buus Madsen


  • 22:45: Close down of MNUG meetup
