Node.JS Workshop and Hackathon with Microsoft's Glenn Block

When: Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM (ET)
Where: Microsoft Offices in Mason, OH (4605 Duke Drive, Suite 800, Mason, OH 45040)

Node.js offers a powerful and fresh platform for building server side (and cloud based) applications in Javascript which are highly scalable. It also offers a really rich modularity story with a fantastic selection of modules for you to choose from. So why should a .NET group be interested in Node? It's a great back end platform to host your API on for your web based applications and your mobile apps whether they be Windows Phone, Windows 8, iOS or Android.

This workshop will cover:

  • An overview of node.js
  • Hands-on experience working with developing node.js applications whether you are using a Mac, Windows or Linux.
  • Using common npm modules, and taking them to the cloud with Windows Azure at ultrasonic speed using git or github based deployment.
  • Building node powered mobile backends using Windows Azure Mobile Services.

After we learn about Node and Windows Azure Mobile Services we’ll put our new skills to the test with a Hackathon. Attendees can group together or work alone to create a project using Node. At the end of the day all hackathon participants will have a chance to win some prizes with the top prize being an AR Drone 2.0 provided by GitHub.

If you want to participate in the hands on labs, please bring your laptop!

Lunch will be provided.
