On Thursday 2014–12–04 I gave a talk as the SF Node.js Club entitled "Node for Not HTTP".

The talk gave an overview of some of the cool things you can do with node.js that are not related to websites. To do this, I cobbled together an ActionHero project that would take input form HTTP, WebSockets, Telnet, and twitter which allowed us to turn a desk lamp on and off.

I taught a room about the DMX lighting protocol and how to build an ActionHero server in 20 minutes!
