essential node.js for web developers
Unlike some introductions that spend time explaining event loops and web sockets, this session start with a typical "Hello, Node" demo and quickly moves to short, fully-functional apps that show how to deal with static files, POST forms, mashups from other servers, file manipulation, data-handling, and even supporting HTTP Authentication.
If you need to get up-to-speed on Node.js really fast, or just want to get a great introduction to coding this powerful Web server, this talk is for you.
since a native version of node is now available on the Windows platform, node is poised to reach a wide audience and has the chance to make a big impact on the way we think about programming servers to support Web appliations.
if you're interested in seeing what it's like to "code with node", come to the CINNUG meeting this Tuesday and check it out.
