Realtime Web Applications with Node.js and WebSockets

On the one hand, nice idea to show up the opportunities of nodejs with a game. On the other hand, there have been to much dealing with the game API instead of dealing with the nodejs functions itselves.

It would have been better, if there has been a setup via e-mail like for the AngularJS workshop, to get the basics already running before (download nodejs, the script for a basic server push etc.). This might have saved a lot of time which maybe could be used to finish the workshop as planned.

Agree with previous comment of André Buck. On my opinion, may be it would be better not to jump to some complicate and complex project as battleship game, but step-by-step build some simple application like chat, for example, to show how to correct work with the events, send and receive messages, and handle it on two clients.
