P2P File sharing workshop

Abstract

This is gonna be a workshop about how to do distributed programming in Node.

The overall idea is that we’ll start out really slow with assignments that everyone can finish (like writing a simple streaming chat server) and then slowly move on to more interesting p2p applications like distributed state and end up with some mad science p2p stuff.

No matter what your experience is with distributed systems there should be fun stuff to learn for everybody

Node is in my opinion an amazing platform for creating distributed systems because of streams / evented io and npm. Hopefully this workshop will inspire a lot of people of join this community.
