Web with Node.js <hacknight>

Edit: Code and Slides for the hacknight can be found here


We will be covering nodejs in the next hacknight.

wtf is nodejs?

watch this

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient. -nodejs.org

get it? :| Awww, come to tomorrow’s hacknight. we will make it easier for you to understand this.

why nodejs?

Lately, I have seen that it is much easier to setup and faster to code a webapp in node.js than any other MVC (models, views, controllers) framework (say, django, flask etc).

node.js is faster, (HELL YEAH!)

In this hacknight, we will be going over these topics:

  1. event driven programming/paradigm
  2. node.js basic concepts
  3. simple file upload webapp
  4. important applications using node libraries
