UPDATE 07/19/11 :: Meeting moved to 7:45pm to accomodate the owners of our space.
Realtime Web Apps with Node.js and Socket.io – Node.js and Socket.io have made web sockets ridiculously easy to implement. Creating real-time web applications has never been easier. Couple that with the fact that most new phones have GPS and you’ve got the potential for some really cool interactivity. In this talk Aaron will be discussing building realtime mobile web applications and demo a really amazing Android app called Zombie Run and how he’s porting it to the web using Node.js and Socket.io.
Also (surprise!) joining us will be J Chris Anderson from Couchbase!
Chris was one of the early committers to the Apache CouchDB project and has been working on CouchDB for over 3 years. He’s watched CouchDB grow from unknown to a widely deployed and trusted database, now used by large organizations such as the BBC and CERN as well as small organizations like Dimagi using CouchDB on smartphones in rural Africa. Chris has a unique perspective from being involved in all aspects of Couchbase, he is deep into technology but equally involved in the business side of Couchbase
