This 90 minute workshop will provide a thorough developer’s introduction to Node.js - an extremely high performance server-side programming framework based on Google Chrome’s lightning fast V8 engine.
It will cover the fundamentals of development with Node, then use those basic principles to build scalable solutions for real-world problems.
Client-side developers should come away from the session with an understanding of how they can take their existing skills and apply them to server-side development. Server-side developers should gain a powerful new set of tools for solving problems that their current platform may not be able handle.
