Ode to Node-NATS: Ts-NATS - the TypeScript native NATS for Node. On December 23, 2011, Derek Collison gave us node-nats (Node.js v0.06). Node-nats is the second oldest client for NATS; only ruby-nats is older (10/30/2010). Node-nats is arguably one of the most popular NATS clients sporting over 64K monthly downloads.

Community Update at The London NATS User Group Meetup

By: Brian Flannery - Date: November 9, 2015

The audience at the London Meetup was great! We had many local companies represented, and some of the leaders of other meetups such as Alexandre González Rodríguez (one of the organizers of the Go London! Meetups), and Milos Gajdos (co-organizer of the Kubernetes London Meetups) present as well. I enjoyed meeting everyone, and getting your feedback after the talks. My talk was focused primarily on: What is NATS? Some meetup members were new to NATS, so in a nutshell, NATS boils down to simplicity and mind-blowing speed. Read More…
