The current latest LTS release line, Node.js 10 “Dubnium,” will remain in LTS maintenance mode until April, 2020. In this meetup, we will cover the new features included in the latest release, as well as reviewing the reasons why you should plan to upgrade and best practices for updating to a newer version of Node.js.

“Building APIs at Warp Speed with LoopBack” - It’s easy to start developing in Node.js, but you will face challenges as your API grows with more modules, components, developers, teams, and releases. Raymond will share experiences in building LoopBack 4 with TypeScript and illustrate techniques, tools, and patterns proven to facilitate developing Node.js projects. He will demonstrate how LoopBack 4 builds an extensible and composable foundation to help you create open APIs or applications that are positioned to scale in various perspectives - all at warp speed!

Raymond is a co-founder from StrongLoop and Chief Architect on LoopBack, the open source mobile API platform. He’s developedg Enterprise Java integration platforms, including IBM WebSphere Process Server, Apache Tuscany, and a Mobile Backend for Shutterfly. He also co-authored Tuscany SCA in Action. He quickly fell in love with Node.js technology and the great community around it. He appreciates Node.js for its flexibility and productivity to mash up various backend systems and expose APIs in a much simpler way.

There will also be open mic time give attendees a couple of minutes to talk to the entire group. This is the time to debut a new project, announce upcoming events or let people know they’re hiring.

The meetup will be held at the Hacker Dojo, 3350 Thomas Rd #150 in Santa Clara, CA. There will also be some snacks and swag on hand, as well as a great chance to network with like-minded folks.
