How we expose distributed JS services to customers using an embedded v8 context by Kurt Mackey Global applications present a unique set of development problems. In this talk we'll share why we built, a global JavaScript application runtime, to solve these issues. Think CDN that runs your code. We'll talk about our globally distributed cache, how we handle SSL before passing the HTTP connection off to v8 contexts, and how we push users' JavaScript out to all those servers.
