Daniel Erickson

Daniel Erickson will be coming to join us from San Francisco. Even though he’s no stranger to Portland, having lived here for many years.  These days Daniel is a Senior JavaScript Engineer at Yammer.com in San Francisco. He’s been working with Node.js since the 0.1.x days, and has built or helped out with a number of services including Storify.com, Geekli.st, and of course all the Yammer node services. Check him out on twitter to learn more.

Daniels presentation is described as:
Many frameworks have been created to allow you to build apps on Node.js – Express, Matador, and Flatiron to name a few. But none of these frameworks are built with development velocity, backwards compatibility, and speed. This is where Geddy steps in. Geddy is a framework built and battle tested by the JS team at Yammer. It’s currently running our upload service. During this talk I’ll walk you through building a basic web app with geddy, and show you how we used it to build a prototype mobile site for Yammer in less than 12 hours.

Besides, what better reason to come visit the amazing city of Portland, Oregon than to come hack some node.js and chill for the weekend!
