Node.js is taking over. Built on top of Chrome's V8 JS engine it uses event-driven and non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient. With world's largest package ecosystem, and now under Node.js foundation, there's not a lot Node.js can't do. We will talk about how to get started with Node.js and some suggesions around common pitfalls to avoid. We will also talk about future of Node.js and explore (possibly endless) possibilities.

• The usual round the room introductions and networking will occur after the talk.

• A one-year subscription for an IDE will be raffled off as well.

• An one-year subscription for the OzCode debugger will be raffled off as well.

Note: We are in normally in C550, but sometimes in C440.
