Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup

Join us at the  Bay Area In-Memory Computing Meetup on March 26 in Menlo Park! This free two-hour event will begin at 6 p.m. at BootUP, located at 68 Willow Road in Menlo Park, CA. The lead presenter is Denis Magda, vice president of product management at GridGain Systems.

His talk is 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. Apache Ignite is a memory-centric distributed database, caching, and processing platform for transactional, analytical, and streaming workloads delivering in-memory speeds at scale. 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.
