Valeri Karpov has been developing web applications since putting up his first Pokemon message board at age 10. He studied data structures under Professor Robert Tarjan at Princeton and started his career working on trade execution platforms at a high frequency trading firm, but web development has been his lifelong passion.
Build and Deploy an API server in Node
In this workshop, Matt Schmulen will walk you through the fundamentals of how an API Server works and what they are good for. We'll then crack open our lids and start hacking. By the end of the session you should have an API Server deployed locally or on your cloud of choice that supports connectivity to MongoDB, MySQL and Oracle plus provides services like push, geolocation and sync.
Schmulen is a Developer Advocate for @StrongLoop. As a former Appcelerator Systems Engineer and native mobile developer, Matt understands first hand how latent API and mobile middle tiers can frustrate developers and kill the consumer experience. Matt joined the StrongLoop team to help mobile developers take advantage of Node to create fast and responsive API servers.

Strongloop: Beyond Node v0.12 - Functional Gaps, Solutions and Unicorns
Having been programming since he was a little kid, Bert got involved with open source when he started to port Node.js to Windows. It got him the core contributor badge, and he hasn't left the project since. In 2012, Bert founded his company @StrongLoop
together with long-time Node contributor Ben Noordhuis, in an effort to lead Node to world domination.
Write Your Own Monitoring For Fun and Profit
Give the lowdown on streams and how this simple abstraction can be used to compose your own monitoring system! Jarrett will dive into the module godot and how it uses a generic JSON format to send messages over the network using TCP/UDP.
Engineer at Nodejitsu passionate about building fault tolerant, distributed systems. Dreams for the day that we will build a completely decentralized internet infrastructure.

Integrate All The Things!
Adam Tuttle will talk about using Node and Heroku to make his life easier and more enjoyable. As more and more of everyday life becomes internet-addressable, it becomes possible to automate the tediousness out of life. There are a million great SaaS tools, but for the most part they all exist in their own silos. Thanks to service webhooks and APIs, and the proliferation of Node modules, you can aggregate most things into a life-stream... and you can host these tools in the cloud, for free, on Heroku. It's like IFTTT, but with more control and a better interface: your IDE.
In addition to working with and speaking about Node.js and ColdFusion, he maintains a growing library of open source projects including Taffy.
Adam is a board game geek and blogs, mostly about tech stuff, at fussiongrokker.com.

Switching to Node Without Nuclear Fallout
Tom Shawver, Lead Architect at Leadnomics, will tell you how to switch your legacy stack to Node without getting fired in the process. He'll cover architectures, libraries, and tools you should know about before you need them.
After being introduced to Node at the last Node Philly Conference, Nathan decided it might be a great solution for a new software product he was scheduled to develop. In this talk, he'll describe the latest iteration of the architecture that's powering Dash. He'll cover tools and methods that will save you when you need to run your application in production.
