learnyounode will run through a series of Node.js workshops. Starting at a basic “HELLO WORLD” and moving on to more advanced exercises about dealing with synchronous & asynchronous I/O, filesystem operations, TCP and HTTP networking, events and streams.
Once you have finished learnyounode, graduate to stream-adventure for a set of exercises that dig in to Node’s streams.

Animal Chiropractic is a growing field and the growth potential is limited only by the number of students that take the course each year. Graduates of the program will have the tools necessary to successfully complete the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association certification exam and establish an animal chiropractic practice. This 240 hour course will give the student the knowledge and tools to sit for the American Veterinary Chiropractic Association certification examination. Only open to licensed veterinarians and chiropractors or students within 2 years of graduation in one of these professions. 129 hours of online presentations and only 3 trips to Dallas for hands on laboratories.
Course registrants will have access to the ACES secure website where students will be able to download notes, watch webinars and Power Point presentations, and complete quizzes relative to the material, in the order necessary to progress through the program. The student may choose the speed with which he or she completes each section.
Forty hours of preparation online content must be completed prior to attending each lab. The cutoff date for lab attendance will be 10 days prior to the beginning of the lab. Closed book tests and practical exams will be given on classroom days. A passing score of 78% is required in order to complete the course. Classroom exams may be repeated at the end of the module with a fee of $25 per repeated exam. Laboratories will have a student / teacher ratio no greater than 5:1. Laboratory instructors must be AVCA certified doctors with a minimum of 2 years practice and an animal population comparable to those which they are teaching. Location of the laboratory and live classroom lectures will be in Meridian, Texas. You can view laboratory dates here or view them on our calendar. Lab 1 meets every month while Labs 2 and 3 meet every other month. Come to the labs at your convenience, finish as quickly as 2 months or as long as 2 years.
Registrants will provide copies of license, transcript from the school of their doctoral degree, and a picture ID photo. Each student will purchase an adjusting bale, a canine spine and a speeder board prior to attending his or her first lab. These will be used in lab and will become the property of the student upon completion of the course.

I really like that the ability to have the full set of notes prior to the lecture that way I can spend my time listening to the lecture fully and not having to write everything down on the slide. I really enjoyed how the days were set up with lecture then the lab to follow and implement as well as breaking up some of the sit-down lecture time. The format was excellent there is a lot to get through in a short amount of time and it’s been awhile since I've had to sit that long. The time with live animals is very helpful in getting techniques and palpation time as well as questions and discussion! Thank you so much for all the time you guys put into us learning this philosophy. I know how time consuming it must be for you. You two make it very fun to learn and think about and I really appreciate it. It has been a wonderful experience. The material has really made me think about things in a different way I view patients differently and am excited to be able to work in new ways with them…
This is very good information. It seems I have learned a great deal more than I did in Chiropractic School about neurology and Chiropractic. I like the constant reinforcement about how chiropractic can help treat animals and people. Also, chiropractic is not used just to treat pain. I have been able to communicate to my human patients much easier. I can start to visualize my new animal chiropractic practice developing…
The hands-on approach was fantastic! It was great to have so much time motion palpating and working on a variety of dogs and horses. The in-person time also allowed for clarification of material that was presented during the online instruction that was made more clear in person. Using the skeletons and live animals to imagine and understand what the subluxations looked and felt like as well as the ample time to practice motion palpating and setting up for adjustments. I know that just in motion palpating some of the animals may correct themselves, but I really appreciate the time we spend when we are able to practice identifying a PI. I had a LOT of fun and I am excited to practice and come back this fall! It's the whole concept of chiropractic, it's an entirely different thought process, where you are encouraging healing and balance of the individual's body by adjustments to keep the neurologic system functioning appropriately. As a veterinarian, for whom chiropractic has always up until this point been viewed as a procedure for which there are certain indications, this has taken some getting used to. I think this concept though, as well as discussion of how some drug side effects can affect an animal's ability to hold its adjustment is probably the most valuable thing. In terms of the lab material - the explanation of adjustment technique and set ups as well as palpations was the most valuable…
