We are looking forward to welcome you at our next node.js@Athens meetup!

Two of our community members will share with us very interesting presentations and afterwards we will have time to discuss about node.js, the Athens technology scene and more.

18:00 – Doors Open

18:30-19:15 – Build a Node.js REST API with LoopBack framework by Aggelos Katsaris
(the presentation will be in Greek)

Aggelos is a Technical Architect at code.hub with a comprehensive knowledge of technology and 16 Years of cross-industry experience in Internet-based Applications and websites.

19:15-19:30 – short break with message from our sponsor – Glispa

19:30-20:15 – Is TDD still relevant? Is it a thing? by Dimitris Mengidis
(the presentation will be in Greek)

During the presentation we will question if working environment or implementation context could or should affect practices of a software engineer and why “Writing tests” or “Testing” are not relevant and different than TDD.

As a demo we will follow a node.js module’s commit history to see an application of aforementioned practices and relevant toolsets that enabled such development cycles.

Dimitris Mengidis works as Senior Software Engineer at Glispa for the last 4 years. During this time, he has been involved in a variety of Ad Tech products in the company, such as the Supply Side Platform, the Demand Side Platform and the Affiliate Network. As an API enthusiast, he mostly works with Node.js for the implementation of middleware/gateways to bridge frontend requirements with backend functionality. On his spare time, he loves listening to records from his personal vinyl collection.

20:15 – … Snacks and Networking!
