A few days ago I attended the second event of the newly born Belgian Node.js User Group. The event was about deploying and testing node.js applications and has been hosted in Microsoft Belgium offices near Brussels, thanks to Tom Crombez (aka @artymoony) and Windows Azure.

There were 3 presentations:

  • Mine, about deploying a MongoDB powered Node.js app on Windows Azure: a walkthrough of the steps needed to deploy the app.
  • Then another talk on how to build your own “cloud-like” environment on Linux, using systemd. Talk by Ruben Vermeersch.
  • Finally Julien Biezemans, lead developer of cucumber.js, gave an introduction of BDD and cucumber.js

It was really a nice event, with good catering and good discussion (and for the first time almost 50/50 French speaking / Dutch speaking).

For those who are interested, you can see my presentation online: http://bitly.com/njug_be_azure.

The first step to test azure is of course to create an account. You can do it following that link: http://aka.ms/azurebenug
