A more detailed Meteor and Derby overview for NoVa Node.js

I gave a lightning talk last May for the Node.js DC meetup on Derby and Meteor. It led to a good discussion, which isn’t surprising since both frameworks are great demonstrations that Node is functionally capable of much more than just cloning Ruby libraries.

The guys running the Northern Virginia Node meetup felt there was more to cover and asked me to do a longer overview at the July Nova Node meetup. Apparently the subject is popular since we had a “sold out” room last night.

Overview of Derby.js and Meteor.js

Full slide deck below…

I was a little worried about taking the whole hour, but got a lot positive feedback afterwards. Free pizza, beer and sodas from the meetup host SpanishDict.com probably didn’t hurt either :).

SpanishDict.com is running on Node now, and handling tons of customers successfully at much lower loads than they were seeing with their previous environment. Several folks (including me) asked for an overview of the production lessons they’ve learned for the next NoVa Node event.

Here is the deck I presented on Derby and Meteor. My goal was to get the core concepts across for discussion, not to teach them. That said, if you do have questions feel free to tweet me or leave a comment. If its guts stuff though, I suggest you go to experts in the relevant Google groups or hit StackOverflow.
