Two talks: Node + IoT



Talk 1 (20 minutes):

Node.js: The cause of and solution to all of life's problems - Craig Freeman

While speaking at a Node.js conference in October of last year, an unexpected cold snap froze pipes in my yard and resulted in water flooding into my finished basement. In an effort to prevent a repeat episode, I used a Raspberry Pi, Node, and Twilio to create an IoT device that would notify me if the temperature drops below a set threshold. This talk walks through the steps I took to piece it together.

Craig Freeman is a Senior Software Engineer at Twilio, specializing in scalable and well-tested UI development for anything from small marketing sites to enterprise web applications. He's been developing for the web in various capacities since 1998 and has an interest in development best practices and organization, continuing education and mentoring, remote culture, Agile workflows, and application architecture. He's a former paramedic and firefighter, current bassist and off-road enthusiast, and aspiring handyman.

6:30pm: Pizza, beer, networking
7:00pm: Talk
7:45pm: Questions

Hope you all can make it out to this great talk. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out.

Information about Node.js

This is a group for anyone who is currently using or interested in knowing more about Node.js and JavaScript. A great place to meet, interact, and learn with other developers, designers, managers, and like-minded individuals. Come and share your knowledge, applications, roadbloacks, and get feedback from others. We'll organize regularly scheduled meetings that will focus on Node.js and many of the associated technologies. 

About Node.js: Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript V8 run time for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses and event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
