Achieving Greatness with Node.js

A session at Yahoo! Open Hack Europe 2011

Saturday 14th May, 2011

11:30am to 12:00pm (BMT)

Server-side JavaScript reaches new heights with Node.js, a young technology that allows you to create network servers, web apps, and everything in between. In this talk, you'll get up and running with Node.js for your hack. You'll learn about the JavaScript environment, the ECMAScript 5 features you can leverage, how to wield the power of async I/O, best practices, and frameworks that help you create the next big thing with ease.

Some topics include: Using WebSockets for realtime data, using YUI on Node.js, Yahoo! products made on Node.js, and a taste of the unconventional, such as using Node.js to talk to an Arduino!
