I’m trying something new so bare with me here. I speak at quite a few events (conferences, meetups, code camps, etc.) so I figured it would be useful to my followers to know when and where these events are in case I am in your part of the world.
I’ll keep it short and to the point. I’m going to be in New York on October 6th, 2015 to present at Couchbase Live New York. It is free to attend this conference, so if you’re in the area, please swing by.
My presentation will be on Node.js and is titled Getting Started: Couchbase Server Node.js SDK.
The abstract to my talk is as follows:
Couchbase Server is the NoSQL document database for interactive applications. Node.js is the platform for building fast, scalable network applications. Just about everyone wants to build better responsive and more engaging experiences for their users quickly and easily, and we can help.
In this session, Nic Raboy will first talk about what is different about this generation of web applications. The approach must consider the latency, throughput and interactivity demanded by users for social interaction across both mobile devices and browsers. Then he will show how Node.js’s programming model makes writing systems to provide this kind of interactivity easy and how Couchbase Server and the Node.js Couchbase SDK support this with a flexible data model and easy scalability.
Come to this session ready to read code, since a web application will be the basis of the demonstration of these techniques in action. Nic will show a sample web application, and key aspects of how the system is constructed for simplicity of data modeling, extensibility and scale.
If you didn’t figure it out, this is a Couchbase conference, so it is a great learning opportunity to get familiar with NoSQL and databases. Although I’m not giving a mobile talk, there will be both mobile and server presentations.
Hope to see everyone there!
