Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup: Tonight in Menlo Park

Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup: Tonight in Menlo ParkThe next gathering of the Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup happens tonight (March 26) in Menlo Park. Organized and sponsored by GridGain Systems, the free event will feature talks from PingCAP, Oracle and GridGain.

Denis Magda -- vice president of product management at GridGain and Apache® Ignite™ vice president -- will give a talk titled, "Apache Ignite for Node.js Developers."

Node.js is a very popular and powerful JavaScript runtime environment. It is lightweight and efficient and benefits from an extensive package ecosystem. The benefits of Ignite are now available to Node.js developers with the addition of the Node.js Thin Client for Ignite.

In this talk, using examples, Denis will cover the specifics of how to use Node.js with Ignite, including:

* Instantiating an Ignite Client
* Creating an Ignite Client Configuration
* Connecting a Client to an Ignite Cluster Node
* Obtaining an Ignite Storage Instance
* Configuring an Ignite Storage Instance
* Performing Key-Value Queries
* Performing SQL, SQL Fields and Scan Queries

At the end of his talk, attendees will have a solid understanding of how to use Node.js with Ignite and can then use this knowledge to build scalable Node.js applications with Ignite.

The evening’s other talks will be from Kevin Xu -- general manager of global strategy and operations at PingCAP – and Doug Hood, Oracle TimesTen Scaleout evangelist.

Kevin’s talk is titled, "Deploying TiDB a distributed open-source MySQL-Compatible HTAP Database with K8s" and Doug’s is titled, "How to scale non trivial applications." Details on both talks are available on the meetup page.

We’ll be streaming the meetup live via our YouTube page. This is a free event -- RSVP here.
