Join us for a technical talk with Jed Wood, Developer Advocate at
StrongLoop, who will be demonstrating how to effectively
program Node.js applications and author your own modules.

Whether you are relatively new to Node or a seasoned practitioner, this
talk will give you several ideas you can implement right away to
make you a more effective Node programmer. We’ll quickly recap
Node.js architecture and the tasks it’s best suited for. Then
dive right in and look at how to write effective asynchronous
code while avoiding common coding pitfalls. Bugs are a reality,
so we’ll also look at the best ways to debug code with some of
the latest tools. Next, we’ll discuss how to vet NPM modules
before including them in your deployment. Finally, we’ll explore
best practices for creating your own custom modules.
