Joyent was asked to help make the video of panels and speakers available from this year's first Node Summit conference on the technical challenges and business opportunities that brings the Node.js community together. For the next few weeks, a new video will be published every day. You can check out all the published videos from Node Summit on, and subscribe via RSS for updates.

In a passionate address, Joyent's Senior Vice President of Engineering Bryan Cantrill talks about what it takes to run Node.js in production, and why, pointing out the fundamental importance of latency, how to measure and visualize it and why an asynchronous, event-driven system is ideal for data-intensive, real time apps.
