Node.js is a library that provides non-blocking I/O for Google's V8 JavaScript engine. This talk explores node's suitability for a diverse range of networking applications. Writing network applications with good concurrency and performance has been a very time consuming task in the past. With the rise of node.js, anybody can now trivially write scalable network applications. This talk explains node's event loop and non-blocking I/O machinery and shows how node may become your tool of choice for future networking adventures. There will also be a look at new threats that could arise from the ability of managing thousands of connections with almost no difficulty.
