Building Web Applications with Node.js

Learn how to utilize server side JavaScript. In this code-along demo, Casey will show how create a server side application that can be polled for real time data using Backbone.js. Besides the basics of Node.js, Express + Redis will also be demonstrated as a way to make the application even faster and easier to develop.

Casey Foster is a core contributor to Backbone.js, co-author of Developing a Backbone Edge, and developer at OrgSync.

    The topic and content of this meetup was great. I thought the presented did a overall good job presenting the topic. However, he could have enhanced the presentation with and good overview of Nodejs, Express, and Redis before the code example. Overall, I thought the content contained in the presentation was very valuable.

    That's funny! All to save a few bytes in the email? Doesn't even make sense.

    How could I miss this? In the email I got the final line reads Besides the basics of Node.js, Express + Redis will also be demons...

    I'm looking forward to seeing them demons...
