.NET Rocks!

Tomasz Janczuk Builds Web Apps with node.js

Episode #711 Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Carl and Richard talk to Tomasz Janczuk about node.js. Node.js is all about building scalable network programs, typically using HTTP. Tomasz talks about how node.js can run as a standalone application that can completely replace a web server, as well as run within IIS as iisnode. iisnode is an implemenation of node.js as a native IIS module. Node.js has been around since 2009, and the community surrounding it is massive - it's only new to the .NET world. Ready to do something totally different on the web from ASP.NET?
