June Meetup Follow up and Slides (Auth0)

02 July 2013

The Seattle Node.js Meetup group’s June 18th event took us to Appature’s offices with a fantastic evening view of Lake Union. We would like to thank Appature for not only providing the venue, but offering great pizza, snacks and beer for the event.

Building a Server Appliance with Node.js

Eugenio Pace discussed his team’s experiences building Auth0, an identity management service, on Node.js.

Eugenio’s slides are available at: http://seanode.github.io/assets/slides/pace-building-appliance-nodejs.pdf

And here’s the talk the abstract again:

Auth0 is a server/service to drastically simplify authentication, identity federation and SSO scenarios. It’s our first big project on node. One of the reasons we decided to build it entirely on Node.js, is the ability to package it and deploy it anywhere: as a service in the public cloud, as a virtual appliance on private cloud, or as an appliance on-premises. In this session we’ll show how we built it, what worked well, what didn’t, and the tools that we used.

Lightning Talks

We had two great lightning talks.

  • Alex Gounares gave a talk on “Breakthrough Bottlenecks: Using Concurix’s Analytics Tools for Faster Node.js Performance”. Alex discussed Concurix’s data and visual analytics tools that allow developers to achieve breakthrough software performance and use deep data analysis to accelerate performance in a many-core world. Concurix’s Node.js product traces, visualizes, and pinpoints line-by-line software bottlenecks in Node.js server applications.

  • Bryce Baril gave a rundown of the talks and happenings from May’s NodePDX Node.js conference in Portland.

Next Event - Let’s Get Going!

We are looking for topics / speakers for our next meetup event. One suggestion so far is a talk on error-handling and domains. Others are most welcome too! Please reach out to the organizers via email at seattlenode@gmail.com or Twitter at @seattlenode to suggest something or volunteer for a main or lightning talk!

As always, you can find all things Seattle Node.js-related at the group website: http://seanode.github.io/.
