# A different way to Node
> The tales of a lazy developer
## About me
* No-stack WEB DEVELOPER - [I hate full stack! Period!](https://codesi.nz/I-hate-full-stack/).
+ Software *over-engineer*.
* Wannabe book author.
* Blogger - [codesi.nz](https://codesi.nz).
* Tweeter - [@opreaadrian](https:[email protected]).
* Open sourcer [/opreaadrian](https://github.com/opreaadrian).
* Father (when not programming).
* Deprived of sleep.
## Why am I here?
* To show you how lazy I am.
* To teach you how to be just as lazy.
## I didn't come to:
* Show you YAJF.
* Debate why NoSQL is better than SQL or why jQuery is not a programming language :D.
## What do I want you to get out of this?
* A different view on your approach to application architecture.
* Thoughts... a lot of thoughts!
## How are we "doing it" today?
#### — nothing technically wrong
* Create a bunch of JS files.
* Group them by what we believe to be "related functionality".
* Spread them all over the place.
* Hope nobody will want to reuse code from our application.
* Code is harder to maintain.
* Reusable snippets vs. reusable modules.
## There is a solution!
* Author everything as node modules.
* Have the secret stuff deployed on a private npm.
* Let [npmjs](https://www.npmjs.com/) handle the non-sensitive parts.
+ Give back by open-sourcing stuff.
* Reusable modules (strive for that, doesn't always work :D)
* Free versioning.
* Fast application setup/startup (package.json is all you need)
All of this, is manual labour!
You could spend your time doing something else
— hopefully not related to programming
* Quick setup.
* Easy to work with.
