Tomorrow’s Mission Control will be held at PlugIn@Blk 71. Pallav, one of our teaching assistants, will be reviewing and having hands-on exercises for Node.JS, a library for writing capabilities to be able create scalable Internet applications, notably web servers.
See you tomorrow at Blk 71! Please make sure to follow the preparation instructions below (after your submission deadline tonight)!
If you’d like to participate in the workshop, please install node before-hand. Instructions for different Operating Systems are listed here:
Go to http://nodejs.org/. Click INSTALL. Follow through the installation process. To check that it works, go to the start menu and search for “powershell”. Run it. Now type “node –version”. If you see a number, you’re set.
Go to http://nodejs.org/. Click INSTALL. Follow through the installation process. Run Terminal and type “node –version” and press enter. If you see a number, you’re set.
Go to http://nodejs.org/. Now you have two options. You could, if you wish, click DOWNLOADS and get the Linux Binaries for your computer. However, you might prefer to install from source. To do this, click INSTALL, extract the folder, open it in a terminal, and follow through the process inside the README.md file (follow the “Unix/Mac” instructions). Run “node –version” to check that it works.
Note: For the purpose of keeping up-to-date with the latest version of Node.js, avoid using a package manager to install it.
