JavaScript, Meet Cloud: Node.js on Windows Azure

A session at Windows AzureConf

Node.js is an incredibly popular open-source framework for writing event-based server applications in JavaScript. With hundreds of modules and vibrant ecosystem, Node.js is quickly catching up to other server-based frameworks, and makes it extremely easy to deploy Web applications. The June 2012 refresh introduces Node.js support on Windows Azure. In this talk we'll build a Node.js application from scratch and deploy it to Windows Azure in a matter of seconds. We'll use Node, express, nstore, SQL Azure, MongoDB, and might even see a glimpse of integration with Windows Azure Mobile Services.
