First Look At Node.js With Microsoft Tools

• 6:30 PM
• Building 100
• Room 401
• Gwinnett Tech

Node.js is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.


To many people it is quite surprising that Microsoft has shown interest in Node, and shocking that they are offering first class tools for working with it.

In this session we will take a high level look at Node, discuss why you might want to use it, and dive into Microsoft's tool set including Visual Studio, Azure Websites, and Azure Mobile Services.

The two groups most likely to benefit from this session are Microsoft developers who are curious about Node and Node developers who are curious about Microsoft tools.

Our speaker will be Jeff Ammons, GGMUG President and Senior Software Engineer for National Auto Research.

    Jeff, fantastic presentation as always. I couldn't help but keep thinking, "Gee, that looks like Microsoft MVC," and, "Where's the Microsoft/C# code?"

    Excellent talk. I left with an understanding of what Node is and more importantly what Node is not.

    Aarsh. I don't have experience with Node Js. My interest is because I have been assigned to a project where we are going to be using it.

    I would like to have a head count here, if I may, about how many folks out there have had / having hands-on on node.js ?

    I'm looking for someone who would like to speak on this topic. I'm trying to connect with members of the Atlanta Node community. Stay tuned. If anyone has connections in that community, let me node, I mean know!
