node: A deeper look into npm (Node Package Manager)

Our topic for our last NodeJs user-group meeting was npm.
npm is automatically included when Node.js is installed. npm consists of a command line client and a remote repository. The command line client, of course, interacts with the remote registry. This combination allows users to consume and distribute JavaScript modules that are available in the repo. It was created in response to what its creator said "module packaging done terribly". There are many elements in this toolbox, did you know you can use npm without node??
Here are the slides of our deep dive. Hopefully it gave all of you who attended a better understanding a few helpful tips and tricks.
