node.js is an evented server-side Javascript framework powered by the Google V8 Javascript engine. It is a platform ideal for creating highly scalable web applications. It has the same simplicity of frameworks such as Sinatra, but is designed to be more peformant from the ground up. This performance is achieved by making all network I/O non blocking and all file I/O asynchronous. We will go over how that impacts the development experience, and walk through a simple web application. Javascript is foundational to this type of I/O because it is already evented by design. We will also take a brief look a similar evented frameworks such as ruby`s EventMachine.
