Earlier this month, Node supporters convened for a Node.js Paris community meetup, and it was great to see how Node is supporting the emergence of the Internet of Things (IoT), through creation of APIs that can connect devices to data.
Issac Roth, CEO of StrongLoop and one of the major contributors to the Node.js core and module ecosystem, highlighted one of the most popular scenarios for Node – creating REST APIs for mobile apps and IoT devices. He demonstrated an open source framework called LoopBack and constructed a mobile REST API in minutes, including security and offline sync.
The Node.js Paris community is fueled by two strong leaders — Quentin Raynaud and Etienne Folio. It was great to see the energy behind the event, on stage and late at night, from these two entrepreneurs. Thanks to their dedication and open collaboration, Microsoft was able to host this Node community for the second time.
