This event was hosted by Microsoft, Surprisingly. haha jk. They actually released a pretty cool ad recently — Child of the 90s. Anyways back to the event, 8:30am - 5:00pm a full day of node.js all for free! I couldn’t pass that up.
The start of the event was just like any other, with a few slides to show off what node.js is & what can be done using it. Showed some examples of how multiple clients could connect and would draw up everybody’s mouse cursor. Then moved on to installation of all the dependancies of node. Had a mini intro to git.
Lunch was then served - some dank ass pizza damn I wish i took pics.
After @tstrimple presented some more code examples of node and showed off its package manager - npm.
Then the hackathon was started. Grand Prize? - Xbox 360 of course Microsoft(assholes). This was my first time actually competing in a hackathon and given my 5 hour bootcamp into node and I am really proud of what I’ve developed. With the time I came up with “Raptor Chat” a Chat Server that has some jurassic friends. I presented and the crowed loved it haha. I’m glad you only present for 2 minutes, any time after they would be annoyed as fuck haahah. sadly tho, I didn’t win. It was given to “Tweet Splash” which used the Twitter API to compare what 2 keywords people were tweeting about, Sorta like facebook’s graph search Over all the bootcamp was great learned a lot and had loads of fun.I hope to further my development into node and come up with more crazy ideas.
Note to Microsoft/Google/FB/Startups/ — host more free events like this and open source more projects so people could learn and improve.
