Happy Node Knockout 2012 kick off! It’s 9:30pm here at the Node Knockout headquarters in San Francisco, but teams from all over the world started hacking four hours ago at 12am UTC / 4pm PST. Competitors started trickling into Joyent’s office to stake out their hacking spots around 3pm, taking a break around 6pm to eat, drink and get the official welcome from the Node Knockout organizers, Visnu Pitiyanuvath @visnup and Gerad Suyderhoud @gerad and Isaac Schlueter @izs, “step-father” of Node.js.
Isaac shared some crucial bits of information about using Node, promised that he wasn’t screwing with us and even gave a tip about how to code with fonts.
