Please join Tom Hughes-Croucher, Chief Evangelist at Joyent, for a webinar inroducing the Joyent Node.js SmartMachine on Tuesday November 1, 2011 at 10:00am PT / 1:00PM ET. Tom, who is an active and respected Node.js developer, will compare and contrast the No.de service and the newer Joyent Cloud Node.js Smartmachine, and what types of development they’re suited to. He will also discuss how using a Node.js SmartMachine can expedite your development efforts, how to create a Node.js SmartMachine, how to install and run applications for production and how to use Joyent Cloud Analytics to troubleshoot your Node.js SmartMachine.
If you don't know about Node.js, you should. It's a cutting edge application development that is enjoying growing adoption due to its high-performance, low-latency, and use of JS on both the front and back ends of the application environment. Node.js is particularly useful for so called DIRTy (Data Intensive Real-Time) applications. Some of the companies running Node.js to power production applications include LinkedIn (mobile), Uber, Yahoo! and LocalResponse. Joyent is the corporate steward for the Node.js project and Ryan Dahl, the creator of Node.js and the project leader, works on the development team at Joyent.
