On July 15th the crowd gathered at IRHQ for a Meetup on Node.js. Our senior NY consultant guided everyone through an exercise using Node and then we transitioned to hands-on coding. During the workshop we built an SMS-driven customer service tool using PM2, Gulp, React, WebSockets, ES6 Map, LevelDB, Deploying to Heroku, BrowserSync, Twilio(SMS), and more. We gained a good sense of how to build realtime apps with Node.js, set up a live/responsive build process, and deploy to virtual servers for prototyping. There was a lot of discussion surrounding how Node can be applied to solve business problems. The night was a success and we are excited for many more Meetups to come! Take a look!
