Introducing Node.js

Tim Caswell will be presenting on Node.js:
http://nodejs.org
http://www.nakedjavascript.com/going-evented-with-nodejs Node.js is a non-blocking I/O server written in JavaScript similar to Python's Twisted framework or Ruby's EventMachine. It is a single-threaded JavaScript server running on V8 capable of handling over 50,000 requests/sec thanks to its non-blocking (think asynchronous) I/O. Come see a demo and code to implement a node.js comet server for real-time web applications. What many believe will be the future of JavaScript. More details coming soon!

    Small group, and the topic turned out to be more interesting than I expected. The speaker was very knowledgeable, and plenty of tech discussion.
