sharp Image Conversion and Free egghead.io Course

RisingStack There’s a new Node.js Weekly Update - 19 May, 2017 over at RisingStack Community with quite a few interesting updates about V8, a couple about micro services with Kubernetes or Docker, etc. But my favorite was their mention of sharp as a really fast way to convert images. It’s apparently much faster than using ImageMagick or GraphicsMagic to do so. But even more than that, within the description of sharp was the mention that it can automatically generate the extra files needed to support super fast zooming software like OpenSeadragon.
