  • 3. What is Node.JS JavaScript programming environment for creating highly scalable network programs Provides evented, Non-blocking I/O Built on top of V8 Node.JS is bare bone and the community are making stuff like Express, connect etc.
  • 4. What is Node.JSEvent driven programming $.ajax( url:, type:GET, contentType:application/json, success:function(response){// doWithResponse }, error:function(xhr){// Error :( } );

  • 6. Node.JS – as an interactive shellSimilar to Python’s shell$> node>3+14> true != falsetrue>.help>.exit

  • 14. Streams Stream instances are Unix pipes Readable  must emit ”data” events whenever they have data to be read and ”end” when the data stream is finished. Writable  must implement the write() method to accept new data chunks into the stream and the end() method to instruct the stream that the data is finished.
  • 15. Node.JS is useful for.. Writing highly concurrent server applications Sharing application logic between server and client Peer-to-peer web applications using websockets Real-time applications
  • 16. Load BalancingThe ability to distribute work load across multiple servers HAProxy Nginix Apache Http server
  • 17. Other Asynchronous JavaScriptplatforms Tornado and Twisted for Python Perl Object Environment for Perl libevent for C Vert.x for Java EventMachine for Ruby vibe.d for D
