About the Talk

September 24, 2011 1:00 PM



Server-side JavaScript has come a long way: In the 90s, only two main solutions existed, and now there are over 60 available. This session details how JavaScript migrated from the client to the server. Even with such progress, a few questions still linger in the minds of developers: Why run JavaScript on the server? And is it reliable and fast enough for developing business applications? Learn about the JavaScript engines, APIs, libraries, and modules available server-side and what they can offer you. Discover the pros and cons of event-based asynchronous patterns, multi-threaded implementations, and integrated databases. If the state of the art is using JavaScript server-side, where are we heading now?
