Production Stack

JUNE 18, 2013 9:00-11:00 AM PST

In this event we will go beyond the theory and talk about production use of NodeStack from various angles of the stack. Up first will be Paul Serby from Clock, he will talk about bringing the front and back ends together for the optimal production user experience. After that we will have Will Shulman, CEO of MongoLab reviewing their deep experience running MongoDB in the cloud. To complete the stack components we will have Anton Whalley from NearForm review how they use SmartOS tools like DTrace to manage product issues and tune performance for their customers. Last but certainly not least, we will bring back the dynamic duo of Charlie Robbins and Isaac Schlueter who will continue to review modules and npm.
