Joyent and Sprint Partner to Bring Node.js to Developers on SmartDataCenter

January 24, 2012 - by shogatwo

The first day of Node Summit in San Francisco kicked off this morning with leading technologists and industry experts sharing their perspective and insights on the business, technology and future of Node. On the mobile panel, Jason Delker, Director of Product Development at Sprint will speak about Sprint's plans for fostering their growing developer community as well as Sprint's future plans for supporting and integrating ground-breaking open technologies like Node.js into their suite of mobile development tools.
"Mobile phones are really micro-computers with always-on data connections. Today's smart phones still run apps served by ancient and inefficient programming languages," says Jason Hoffman, Joyent Founder and CTO.  "Node.js ushers in a new era of computing where Carriers can achieve greater network efficiency and customers enjoy faster application response times.  Sprint's proven track record of innovation, developer engagement and commitment to being 'more open' than other carriers makes Sprint a natural partner for Joyent."
To that end Joyent will be collaborating with Sprint to offer Node.js developer instances on Joyent's SmartDataCenter cloud software for the Sprint Developer Community and internal product development teams.
