Node: Beyond the Introduction


Node.js is a server-side technology designed for writing scalable Internet applications, using a non blocking IO model. Programs are written on the server side in JavaScript, using event-driven, asynchronous I/O to minimize overhead and maximize scalability. Node.js was founded by Ryan Dahl in 2009 and today it enjoys the support of large technology companies like Microsoft, Joydent and others. In this session I will revisit the basics of node.js including writing a simple web server using node but will also dive a bit deeper into what it takes to create a full featured web app / service with node
