Node – Getting started and understanding when to use it
Over the past several years, Node.js has taken hold in the developer community and is being adopted by major corporations such as LinkedIn, WalMart, and Yahoo, as well as many others. This talk will start with the very basics of Node.js: understanding what it is, why it was developed, and what problem areas Node is suitable for. We’ll then move into building some basic Hello World applications using Azure as the hosting environment. Finally, we’ll end with a discussion of various Node.js frameworks, and then build sample applications using the Hapi framework that Walmart Labs has developed. By the end, you’ll be able to better understand when to use Node.js and how to quickly start with developing a rich Node.js application.
