Integrating Node.js with your existing Drupal site - Jan. 23, 2014

Surrey Drupal developer, Vladimir Ilic, will be presenting at tonight's meetup of the Vancouver Drupal Meetup. His session will cover requirements for integrating Node.js with your existing Drupal application.

Node.js - a paradigm shift in web development is coming to a server near you. It provides a unifying language all the way from the back end to the front end. This session will give you an overview on what Node.js is, how to get started with it, and most importantly, how and when to integrate it with your existing Drupal application (get best from both worlds).

Some topics that will be covered:
• What is Node.js
• Why Node?
• What make Node.js different?
• What do you need to get started with Node?
• Drupal and Node.js

Vladimir Ilic fell in love with computers in 1979 with his first program being the lunar lender on the TI 57. He is a passionate programmer and avid technologist who was first introduced to Drupal four years ago and, has since then, completely integrated the framework into his daily work. He is currently employed by a large organization developing Drupal on Linux/OSX.
