It is our Fourth Anniversary!

Philip O'Donnell has been working on a project recently that heavily utilizes chrome headless driven by puppeteer as a next-generation approach to web scraping/crawling and automated used interface testing. Some other wrapper libraries are new as well. The technology is not node-based, but puppeteer is, and JavaScript is native to the browser to the bindings work best that way.

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.
