Talk sobre Node.js
por M-ITI Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute - Quarta, 18 Fevereiro 2015, 17:39
O M-ITI gostaria de convidar-vos a assistir a uma talk na próxima Quarta Feira dia 25 de Fevereiro, às 14:30 na Classroom (M-ITI), com Pedro Teixeira.
Ever since being introduced in 2009, Node.js has enjoyed unprecedented growth and has been heavily adopted by the software industry. JavaScript is quickly on its way to world domination: it is the language of user interfaces, databases, IoT and now, with Node.js, the language being used server-side.
In this talk we’ll analyse all the inside facts behind the hype: what makes this a great platform, its main use cases, the companies driving it and the community around Node.js.
Short bio:
