As Node's popularity grows, the "Holy Grail of Web Development" is within reach -- writing application code once and executing it both on the server and in the browser! I will share lessons I've learned from building out the Drumkit.js code-sharing framework and show how we are using Node at Groupon to quickly build new Web applications with shared data models, view logic and request routing.

Node.js makes creating scalable server-side applications easier than ever. However, node apps can take a little work to deploy with good performance and availability. Come learn how to properly deploy, monitor, and debug a production node app.
Strata is a streaming HTTP framework for node.js that preserves the high throughput and performance you get from non-blocking IO while providing you with a solid, modular base for building web apps. Strata places an emphasis on speed, throughput, maintainability, and ease of testing.
We'll present tools and techniques for working with Node.js in production. Specifically, we'll be talking about post mortem debugging and performance analysis of Node programs. We'll cover real issues we've diagnosed using these tools (that would have been next to impossible with existing tools) and then present novel visualizations of runtime performance data.
