Bleeding Edge Web Meetup | Web App by Example: Node.js
Wednesday 7/23- We’re also excited to introduce a new series that will recur over the next several months called “Web App by Example”. The premise will be to take the exact same application spec and build idiomatic implementations in several different server frameworks. This should provide an easy way for people to compare and contrast popular framework patterns, comparing apples to apples as closely as possible. Think of it as TodoMVC for the server side, covering things like server-side templating, routing, data access, REST API support, unit testing and more. Learn more
