Guest Post: NodeStack at SCALE

Guest Post by: Deirdré Straughan - Community Architect, SmartOS


We are happy to announce that several of us from the SmartOS community/Joyent, as well as our friends at 10Gen, will be at SCALE 11x in LA.

On Feb 22, we'll be running a day-long hands-on workshop on building and deploying your app in the nodestack: the combination of SmartOS, node.js, and MongoDB.

The event will be led by Joyent's Max Bruning and Brendan Gregg, and Shaun Verch of MongoDB. You'll learn why the best open source cloud stack for building and deploying your app is nodestack - and then you can try it for yourself.

By lunchtime you'll be logged into your own complimentary Joyent SmartMachine in the Joyent cloud.

In the afternoon we'll help you with the finer points of tuning, checking performance, and running a sample application. You’ll be able to keep using your SmartMachine for free for a month, giving you time to fully test for yourself the power of nodestack!

To register for this free tutorial day, follow the registration link on the SCALE 11x site, and add nodestack in Step 2 (Registration - Add Items). If you're already registered for SCALE, you can add this as a free upgrade.

We look forward to seeing you there!

FYI, Brendan will also be speaking at SCALE this year, on Linux Performance Analysis and Tools. And, before SCALE even starts, you can attend MongoDB LA 2013 on February 20th!
