Rising from non-existence three short years ago, Node.js is already attracting the accolades and disdain enjoyed and endured by the Ruby and Rails community just a short time ago. It overtook Rails as the most popular Github repository last November and was selected by InfoWorld for the Technology of the Year Award in 2012. But is there substance behind the hype? This presentation will explain the basic theory and programming model central to Node's approach and help you understand the resulting benefits and challenges it presents.

Jeff is the Chief Technology Officer at Near Infinity, a Reston, VA based software development, training, and consulting-services company specializing in big data and mobile solutions. He has spent the past ten years leading Agile-focused development teams and creating web and network-based systems and applications. The majority of his programming experience lies in Ruby/Rails, Java, Objective-C, and most recently Node.js/JavaScript.
