Node.js: JavaScript on the Server

  Shared By: GoogleTechTalks      Date: Jul 29      Category: Javascript     
Google Tech Talk July 28, 2010 ABSTRACT Presented by Ryan Dahl, the creator of the node.JS open source project. It is well known that event loops rather than threads are required for high-performance servers. Javascript is a language unencumbered of threads and designed specifically to be used with synchronous evented I/O, making it an attractive means of programming server software. Node.js ties together the V8 Javascript compiler with an event loop, a thread pool for making blocking system calls, and a carefully designed HTTP parser to provide a browser-like interface to creating fast server-side software. This talk will explain Node's design and how to get started with it.
