JavaScript, Meet Cloud: Node.js on Windows Azure

Node.js is an incredibly popular framework for writing event-based server applications in JavaScript.  With its hundreds of modules and vibrant ecosystem, it 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, including Azure Web Sites, Cloud Services, and Virtual Machines.

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.
