Canada Tour 2014: Toronto User Groups and ConFoo

Friday, February 28, 2014

I spent a great week in Canada despite the super-cold weather for my taste. After all, in Israel, sub-freezing temperatures are enough of a reason to cancel school and bring public transportation to a halt. So for me, stepping outside in -15 degree weather was pretty much of a shock. The week started with three days in Toronto, visiting the Sela Canada branch and delivering two talks at user groups - an introduction to Android development with Eclipse and Xamarin, and an introduction to Node.js on Windows Azure. Then, I flew in to ConFoo, a conference for web developers in Montreal....

Node.js and Windows Azure: A Love Story

Sunday, June 23, 2013

Node.js and Windows Azure work great together. Windows Azure is a perfect host for running Node.js web sites, web services, and other kinds of applications. In my AzureConf and Visual Studio Live! talks this year I’ve been telling the story of this integration, and figured it would be a good idea to document some of the demos I use.

There is still time to register with an early bird discount and an additional speaker discount if you use the...

We had three tracks with a total of 18 talks, and mine was concerned with running Node apps on Windows Azure. This was a similar -- although not identical -- talk to what I did at the Israeli Windows Azure User Group last month. You can find the slides and demos here, but you will have to substitute your account names and keys if you want to run...

Windows Azure UG Talk: Node.js on Azure

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Last Monday, I gave a talk on Node.js with Windows Azure at the Israel Windows Azure User Group. First of all, I find it incredible that the group meets every month and discusses the latest developments in cloud computing from Microsoft. I was delighted to see a group of enthusiasts open to learning about new technologies – I preached JavaScript and Node to C# developers, after all :-) Node.js on Azure from Sasha Goldshtein My talk covered the basics of using Node.js, fundamentals of the express framework and then some modules such as nstore,...
