The Node.js Ecosystem in Perspective



Node.js is rapidly transforming application development from an environment dominated by Java to one dominated by JavaScript. Many novel choices were made along the way. Dan Shaw explores the implications of these decisions and how they have impacted the Node.js ecosystem.

He has extensive experience building large-scale, real-time systems with Node.js and has been building production services using Node since v0.2. He is a frequent speaker, host of the NodeUp podcast and organizer of events like EnterpriseJS, the SFNode meetup.
