Node, and the Future of the Web

Rating: 4 of 5

Node.js is becoming more and more popular every day, and Joyent is working hard to keep the community stimulated, and engaged.

In this talk James presents the state of the world of compute - in the cloud, and out of it, a vision of the future of the internet, and an introduction to the ideas behind node, and the reasons why Joyent thinks the technology is so important.

While the talk does present a brief introduction to Node.js as an enabling technology, the primary goal is to get the audience looking at the web, and perhaps the world in a slightly different way.

presenter was engaging and well informed. Would have liked a bit more specific information especially for those who have never worked with node.js (e.g. what is node.js), but this was not the point of the talk.

This presentation could have been the opening keynote we didnt have. Good examples (voxer), links (the guy who was struck by a train, Barcelona). Great presentation

Even if James was very dynamic, this talk was very disappointing for me. I knew it was a brief introduction to Node but I expected much more information on the "future of the web" as James/Joyent sees it. It was not the case.

I do agree with the previous comments. I do think that James knew perfectly was he was talking about, captivating speech about the future of the web and the game changers like Node is.

During the speech, you talked about a sales pitch you've made to one of the biggest telecom company in the U.S. Sadly, I kinda felt like I was part of it.

I do understand that this was an introduction to Node.. Not just the kind of introduction I thought we would have.

Anyhow, I'd like to hear another session from you.
