Talking at London Node User Group (LNUG) – Feburary 2013

At the Feburary London Node User Group (LNUG) I had a chance to speak about one of my new projects pinitto.me. Pinitto.me is an open source infinite virtual corkboard application that I created over a weekend around christmas to help with planning days for myself and colleagues at Surevine.

The system is built upon node.js with mongodb providing the persistence, express the http responses, and socket.io handling the server connections.

The project is on github so I suggest you check it out and get involved if you would like to: hhttps://github.com/pinittome/pinitto.me.

Anyway the talk wasn’t focussed on pinitto.me itself, more importantly I wanted to talk about how we’re in an exciting place where we’re moving to a realtime web and how node.js and related tools made building realtime applications really simple and fast. Coupled with this I shared a few of the lessons I’d learned in building the application.

It had been a while since I’d given a talking in front of people but was good to get up and do so, and I’m hoping to do lots more in the future.

Thanks to Andrew Nesbitt for organising and if you’re a node.js developer or interested in node.js I suggest you get yourself there for a meetup (if at least for the free pizza and beer).

Here’s my slides from the talk (http://talks.evilprofessor.co.uk/pinitto.me):
