In this tutorial we are going to build a clustered chat server that supports Socket.io. You'll learn how to build a real-time app that scales, doesn't fall over and is easy to extend and add features to. There are lots of tutorials that will teach you how to throw together some Node.js code. This tutorial isn't that.
