Next meeting: Continuous Integration and Delivery for JavaScript Apps using VS Online.

Continuous Integration and Delivery for JavaScript Apps using Visual Studio Online. Yes, Visual Studio Online

Did you know that Microsoft has learned how to play nice with others? Visual Studio Code is great but it is just the teaser. Now that you’re hooked let’s deep dive into what the mothership has built for JS developers. Visual Studio Online is a powerful, flexible, inexpensive (free for small teams!) and easy Application Lifecycle Management tool that works great with more than just .Net apps. Want to deploy a Github repo to a Linux host? It can do that. Docker your thing? Then buckle up. Need to integrate and run test builds? Yup. Run a unit test suite? You bet. Manage code with pull requests? Easy-peasy. We will see how to pull, build, test, and deploy a single page Javascript and Node app to multiple environments using Visual Studio Online. It’ll be fast, fun, and really easy.

Welcome to the JaxNode User Group

The Jacksonville Node.js and Javascript User Group is for anyone interested in learning more about Node.js and JavaScript. JavaScript was originally created for scripting web browsers, but now JavaScript applications run on the server, desktop and even robots.

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient.

Join our Meetup

We also would like to encourage everyone to join the Jacksonville-Tech Slack group. This is a great place to ask questions and find out about what is going on in the tech community here in Jacksonville.
