Hope to see some of you at the events!

Mission Control #10 – Introduction to Node.js

In the last set of Mission Control sessions, we’ll be bringing you up to date with alternative (web and mobile stack) technologies that you can consider for future projects.  

This week your fellow SoCian, Ng Zhi An from NUS Hackers, will be presenting a tutorial on Node.js.  Please come down and give him your support for this penultimate Mission Control session!

Node.js is a software platform for scalable server-side and networking applications. Node.js applications are written in JavaScript.

Node.js applications are designed to maximize throughput and efficiency, using non-blocking I/O and asynchronous events. Node.js is commonly used for real time applications due to its asynchronous nature, allowing applications to display information faster for users without the need for refreshing. One typical real time application of Node.js  is to use it as a chat server.

Node.js combined with a browser, a document DB (such as MongoDB or CouchDB) and JSON offers a unified JavaScript development stack.

This workshop is part of the NUS SoC Orbital Summer Programme.  Presenter: Mr Zhi An Ng, NUS Hackers.
