February's topic will be "Introduction to NodeJS" presented by Frank Cash
NodeJS is commonly used in building web applications that benefit from an asynchronous runtime, the use of WebSockets and among others while also allowing for a maintainable code base. NodeJS also has a thriving ecosystem which developers can make use of to re-use existing code created by others.
To demonstrate these benefits and features, we will be building a simple and elegant web application together.
While not required, in order to follow along with the introduction on your own machine, it's recommend having NodeJS, NPM, and MongoDB installed and working prior to this event.
