  • A CouchDB, Neo4j, Redis, and Node.JS Circus

    by Eric Redmond

    NoSQL databases are fun, and we've all wired up a Node.js project to use one. But what about two? What about three?

    That's what's on the docket for this talk. We'll do all the things:

    Walk through a (very) quick intro on CouchDB, Neo4j, and Redis.
    Then learn how to interact with these very different databases using Node.js.
    Then wire them up into a single web application (using Bricks.js, for good measure)
    Write it all in CoffeeScript... buzzword overload!!!
    If you do not walk out of this talk excited and maybe a little confused, I will have failed.

    At 10:00am to 10:45am, Saturday 11th February

  • BattleBots in the Clouds with Node.js

    by Ken Robertson

    Years ago I always enjoyed the BattleBots show on TV and loved teams' ingenuity and inspiration to essentially build something only to have it gloriously destroyed. But is there a way we can bring that to the software world? What if we could leverage the cloud to orchestrate scalable battles.

    In this talk, will talk about using Node.js in the cloud, particularly within the Cloud Foundry ecosystem and demonstrate deploying to PaaS.io. Will then walk through this concept of software battle bots using a bot in Node.js. And lastly, will deploy the bot the cloud and run several battles using slight variations to see which one can last the longest or destroy the quickest.

    Speaker Bio

    Ken is the founder of PaaS.io, a Platform-as-a-Service company built on Cloud Foundry. PaaS.io is a language agnostic platform for easy deployment and scaling of applications. Ken prefers working with clouds on sunny days, but enjoys venturing out into the fog from time to time. When he isn't writing bad metaphors, he spends his time learning about and building scalable architectures, operational automation, and making it all work together seamlessly to be leveraged by all.
