JavaScript and Node.js and The Future of Telephony Application Development

A session at GothamJS

Saturday 9th July, 2011

4:10pm to 4:50pm (EST)

In addition to traditional web apps, Node.js is very well suited to building communication apps (it's good for everything!) To illustrate this, Mark will provide a short introduction to Node, and lead up to a broader discussion about the different kinds of things you can build with it, including an exploration of the future of telephony application development and the prominent role that technologies like Node will play in it.

Mark will present some live demos to illustrate the power of building telephone, IM and SMS applications using JavaScript, both in the browser and on the server, highlighting the power of Node. You'll see how JavaScript and Node.js can be used to build powerful, VoIP enabled, multi-channel communication apps.
