This Wednesday, the 17th, I will be presenting a demo of a Node.js app on the Beaglebone Black at the Columbus Javascript User Group.   The app show controlling IO on the Beaglebone with a mobile device using Node.  Join us if you can.  http://www.meetup.com/techlifecolumbus/events/184754472/?gj=ro2_e&a=ro2_gnl&rv=ro2_e&_af_eid=184754472&_af=event

Hello, I'm new here. Do you guys have any events planned? Myself and my company are NodeJS experts looking to expand our talent pool. We are also working on a new kind of enterprise framework built on NodeJS and AngularJS.

Not exactly related to Node.js, but I know you'd all appreciate this video. Roger Craig is a Jeopardy game show winner who built a tool that data mined the Jeopardy Questions archive to come up with the most common questions. He then built a web tool to track his performance on these questions to focus on those he was weakest in. From there, he built a quantified version of himself to predict how well he'd do going up against Jeopardy opponents. Great video.

Today is exciting: we’ve completed a year-long project to move Groupon’s web traffic from our legacy Ruby on Rails application to Node.js. We’ve been working hard on this transition and have learned a lot along the way. Groupon will be one of the largest production deploys of Node.js worldwide. We’re currently serving ~50,000rpm and our [...]

*****NodeFrameworks.com Got GitHub Stats*****

Now our hand-picked registry of Node.js frameworks (NodeFrameworks.com) has GitHub statistics right on the website, so you don’t have to navigate back and forth when making a decision!

This is how it looks: each framework has a number (GitHub stars) next to its name. This serves as a social proof meaning the more people use the framework the more robust it is and the less bugs it has...

A browser  written in Node.

Modular. Everything in the browser is a module, a web-app running in its own process. Construct your own browsing experience by selecting the right modules for you. very hackable. Hackable. Want vertical tabs? Write some JS & CSS! Customised autocomplete engine? JS!

Hoping that this dreadful winter is almost over, I would like to get the meetings going again?  Anyone interested in speaking?  Also, what are the thoughts on a meeting devoted to Node hardware hacking?  I have been playing with the Beaglebone Black and AR Drone over the winter and love working with Node on hardware.

Project using Node.js, Socket.io, HTML5, and client-side JavaScript to control IO on the Beaglebone Black. Also, using the same stack to read the temperature using a TMP36 on the Beaglebone and stream it to the phone. Interesting aspects include using DeviceOrientation to control a remote RGB LED and using the Web Speech API to use voice on the phone to turn a LED on the Beaglebone on/off.  Beaglebone Black Mobile Application.  Source available on Github - https://github.com/kmccanless/BeagleMobile.

Bluebird, a promise framework, has been released. I unfortunately don't know enough about Promises to give it a judgment. However, the HN discussion in the attached link is giving it some great reviews.
Some really impressive optimization techniques used in this library :). What's also really impressive is that ultra-fast means callback-level performance. And that performance is achieved even though promises are exception-safe (and don't crash the process like exceptions in callbacks ;) ...

I use Q but the performance of Bluebird demand that I give it a look.
