Getting started with Node.js

In this demo, Andrew Glover introduces Node.js, a server side implementation of JavaScript built on top of Google's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js is finding a home among web developers, both for its ability to handle concurrency and because it was built with web development in mind. You'll be amazed at how simple it is to write and comprehend, and asynchronous callbacks make it extremely powerful. Once an app is written, it can be deployed to any number of PaaS providers, for maximum scalability.
