Welcome to Node Labs! This workshop is intended to work much like a lab or recitation course at a university. There will be instructors (designated by a Node Labs t-shirt) milling about throughout the workshop who will be checking in to make sure you’re not stuck and to answer your questions.

First things first: you should have node.js installed on your computer and available on your PATH. If you do not, please download node.js now.

To ensure that you have node.js installed, open a command prompt and make sure the following commands exist and are at least the versions below:

$ node --version
v0.10.13

$ npm --version
1.3.2
