This is a quick, but detailed, introduction to the fundamentals of Node.js. In just 20 minutes, Edmond Meinfelder introduces how to receive and send HTTP requests, streams, clusters and flow control with promises and async. He covers the basics of NPM and this framework for building fast, scalable, network applications.
Edmond’s talk kicks off the maiden voyage of SFNode, a new San Francisco user group that meets the first Thursday of each month, with a code-focused overview of Node.js. He's also made the resources, presented in this introduction, avaliable on github.
