An Introduction to Server-Side JavaScript

A session at @media 2010

Friday 11th June, 2010

11:45am to 12:40pm (GMT)

Server-side JavaScript has really started to take off, with a number of great projects providing different pieces of the puzzle. This talk will introduce server-side JavaScript and provide an overview of the existing projects as well as some ideas about where it’s all going in the future.

Tom will look at how the various JavaScript runtimes, such as V8 and Rhino, affect development and provide their own unique features. You’ll also see the standardisation effort of Common.js and why it’s shaping how people write server-side JavaScript.

All the leading SSJS frameworks – Node.js, Narwhal, Jaxer – will be discussed as well as some more quirky uses of JavaScript on the server such as CouchDB and YQL.
