Things I Learned While Taking a New Team into Node.js
My team and I are all relatively new to Node.js, but not to communities. This talk is to share a retrospective of lessons learned, things I wish I’d known, a few “gotchas” and some interesting libraries that we’ve found while my whole team made the leap into Node.js and built a new product.

Scaling (breaking things) using Bitly’s NSQ and Node.js
Bit.ly’s NSQ is an incredibly powerful way to process streams of data at scale. Moz has successfully used Bit.ly’s data to large scale collection of social data as well as use it for a pipeline of offline processing for Moz Local. The presentation will be partly about what NSQ is and what makes it unique, and how we used it in combination with NodeJS within Moz.
