From their Meetup.com page:

So I think it's time that Atlanta catches up with the rest of the innovative cities in this country and dive into the world of Node.

The focus of this group will be to learn node js through a practical approach. We will have keynote introductions of meetings, followed by discussions, and then hacking/development sessions where we will learn to rapidly build applications. While we may have the occasional outside expert speaker, our goals are to promote knowledge and gain experience in this new technology by work from members within the group.

Members may be developers of all skill levels, designers looking to leverave javascript skill sets, architects looking for faster ways to build scalable systems, and engineering managers who want to understand how this technology can be utilized in their company.

And of course anyone interested in changing the world.

We will have a heavy focus on mobile computing devices and other smart devices like TVs with less focus on plain desktop pc.

    Hello Peeps!

    We have a great meeting lined up for you again this month!

    Darren Seet will present

    Service Workers for Desktop and Progressive Web Apps

    Service workers are at the core of Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) techniques for resource-caching and push notifications. PWAs, when combined with service workers, provide better performance and a better overall user experience.

    Service Workers - Progressive Web Apps - Introducing the concept of Service Workers and diving deep into PWAs. We will go into what role the Service Worker plays in PWAs and the additional functionality that it brings to the web application. We will also look in a code sample that shows the registration lifecycle of a service worker and how to make use of the service worker events to provide functionality that lives outside the web application code. Finally, we will look at some quirks and things to take note of when using service workers.

    Darren Seet. Darren been a developer for more than 10 years and started dabbling with the Javascript stack about 5 years back. He was a pretty active contributor of OpenSource to JSCS before it was merged into ESLint. He was introduced to PWAs when completing a Google-sponsored scholarship Udacity Nanodegree on Mobile Web Specialist. This made him research the material from some key contributors to PWAs that make up most of this talk.

    After Darren's presentation, Ryan Connelly will moderate
