Node, microservices and IOLmobile

The talk kicks off with general intro to NodeJS and its cost/benefit, similarly with microservices. I will present how we applied Node microservices to some use-cases, namely for weather, search, and matric results, for the IOLmobile.co.za AngularJS app.

"Weather" (http://iolmobile.co.za/#!/weath...­) illustrates parsing and transforming XML data to be served as JSON, for consumption by the front-end AngularJS app. "Matric results" (http://iolmobile.co.za/#!/matri...­) illustrates using Redis as a fast in-memory database. "Search" (http://iolmobile.co.za/#!/searc...­) illustrates integration with ElasticSearch.
