[Async]: Objects are the API, stupid!

Shared objects in Node.js applications

14 February 2013 from 7:15pm to 9:30pm

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

Object proxies and observables are frequently seen in MVC frameworks - some background reading: here, here and here - but you can also make use of them to simplify and automate common programming problems. In ES6 and ES7 there will be improved language support to help make this form of meta-programming more accessible.

In this talk, Kevin Jones will look at how to use the new features by example and show how he built a shared object module for distributed Node.js applications that exploits meta-programming ideas to make it absurdly easy to use.

Kevin is a freelance developer working out of Harrogate, North Yorkshire. He is a data runtime specialist who is often to be found building interpreters, virtual machines and parallel processing engines for the likes of Intel & HMRC. He is currently obsessed with all things Node, but worryingly actually quite likes TypeScript.
