    I am really looking forward to doing this presentation and meeting everyone. I am huge JavaScript nerd and can't wait to share my experiences using Node on my own box, on Azure and on Heroku with you. As I do with all of my presentations, I will make my source code and slides available after my talk. So if you want to get up and going with Node and avoid headaches along the way, this is the presentation for you. See everyone in January.

    Very good. Practical demo with some good examples and even better walk-through explanations. Left with a much more comfortable feeling about developing in Node.

    It was a nice session. But we wanted to do more something like creating a simple code, running an example code, etc.

      Parking is 3 dollars. Crave labs will validate the parking. Otherwise we pay 16.50 a day. Now we will be paying $3 dollar only. Sweet deal :0

    For those who haven't seen me talk before, get ready for a different kind of presentation. While I teach the facts, I try to never be boring and always speak my mind. My speakerrate.com rating is 4.69 out of 5.

    After the talk please rate it at: http://speakerrate.com/talks/19141-introduction-to-nodejs.

    I think I am taking up a seat that someone else could use. So I am going to change my RSVP to NO, but I will be there to give the talk.
