Nodestack Comes to Scale 11x

February 15, 2013 - by rachelbalik

Last week, Mr. Bruning guided us through the first steps of getting started on Nodestack, which is the combination of Node.js, and MongoDB.

If you read his post, you probably found yourself thinking when you were finished: “I wish I could have read this for hours.” Good news. There is an opportunity for you to spend hours - a whole day in fact - learning about Nodestack, and it’s coming up very soon.

On February 22, several of us from the Joyent open source community, as well as our friends from 10Gen, will be at SCALE 11x (the 11th annual Southern California Linux Expo) in LA. This year, the conference will host more than 100 exhibitors and 70 speakers - including us. We’ll be running a day-long hands-on workshop on building and deploying your app in the Nodestack. Joyent’s Max Bruning and Shaun Verch of MongoDB will be on-hand to run the event with help from Brendan Gregg.

The session will start with a quick explanation of why Nodestack is the best open source cloud stack for building and deploying your app. But the real fun begins when you log on to your own complimentary Joyent cloud and try the Nodestack out for yourself. In the afternoon, we’ll help you with the finer points of tuning, checking performance and running a sample application. When the event is over, you can keep using your Joyent Machine Image for free for 60 days giving you time to fully test for yourself the power of Nodestack!

To register for this free tutorial day, add Nodestack in Step 2 (Registration – Add Items). If you’re already registered for SCALE, you can add this as a free upgrade.

For those who can’t join us in person, the morning overview/introduction (9:00 a.m. to noon Pacific Time) will be live streamed. Please register here for information about how to join the video stream.

We look forward to seeing you, in person in LA, or online.
