Tech Evangelist and Node.js Specialist Kevin O’Hara to Join Next #DifferentSpokes Hangout

CloudSpokes, the crowdsourcing community that matches companies that need cloud development work with a worldwide community of specialist developers, today announced upcoming guest speakers for its series of virtual developer hangouts, #DifferentSpokes.

#DifferentSpokes launched in January 2013 to engage developers and community members in topics of interest. Episodes air every three weeks and involve virtual roundtable style discussions, as well as special guests. The CloudSpokes team chooses a topic for each hangout, spanning technologies such as Javascript, Google App Engine, Cloud Foundry, and JQuery Mobile. The team also chooses a book to compliment the hangout topic for Bowerman’s Book Club, which is a featured book club segment hosted by CloudSpokes architect, Kyle Bowerman, during each hangout.

Tomorrow #DifferentSpokes broadcasts its fifth episode with guest Kevin O’Hara, who will be speaking on the topic of Node.js. Kevin O’Hara is a CloudSpokes member, lifelong developer, and technology enthusiast experienced in a vast array of programming technologies. A Certified Consultant, Administrator and Developer, Kevin is the CTO at LevelEleven, where he helps lead building software for gamification. Kevin is also a recent inductee into the MVP program.

During each #DifferentSpokes Hangout, CloudSpokes welcomes its community members and anyone interested in the topic to participate in the live broadcasts via Twitter, where they can interact while watching, suggest topics, and ask questions. This week, the most active tweeter will win a copy of the next book selected for Bowerman’s Book Club and a custom CloudSpokes t-shirt.

Future #DifferentSpokes Hangout discussions will include Neo4j, Java, Heroku and AngularJS, as well as a special All Star episode featuring popular guests from previous Hangouts. For those who are unable to tune-in live, each episode is also recorded and available for replay on the CloudSpokes website.
