About the Talk

After last year's standing ovations performance, he is back. His last talk's video was viewed 12 thousand times. We're excited what will happen this year.

Node.js presents the same non-blocking, single execution stack programming model of client-side Javascript. However, Node is arguably aiming at more complex problems than browsers have faced: massively concurrent servers that may shell out to many different processes, that might need to execute many sequential file system operations. Can this programming model support such systems or does the code degenerate into a spaghetti of callbacks? This talk will present an emerging set of patterns being used in this new domain.
