Ryan Dahl will present on his uber-awesome node.js server side JavaScript platform.

RDahl_sw.jpgHere's a short biography:
Ryan is an American freelance programmer living in of Germany. His work invariably involves interruptible parsers, event loops, and response time histograms. He is the creator of several open source projects including the Ebb web server and the "EY" load balancer module for Nginx.

And this what he will be talking about:

Node.js, Evented I/O for V8 Javascript

It is well known that event loops rather than threads are required for high-performance servers. Javascript is a language unencumbered of threads and designed specifically to be used with synchronous evented I/O, making it an attractive means of programming server software. Node.js ties together the V8 Javascript compiler with an event loop, a thread pool for making blocking system calls, and a carefully designed HTTP parser to provide a browser-like interface to creating fast server-side software. This talk will explain Node's design and how to get started with it.
