Description

JavaScript's simplicity, ubiquity, and event-driven paradigm, and its high performance runtimes like Microsoft's Chakra and Google's V8, have led it to spread beyond web pages and browsers to servers and clouds, IoT devices, mobile apps, and more via the Node.js platform. For years Microsoft has worked closely with industry and community partners to build and improve Node.js to meet developers' needs, from contributing Node's main system library years ago to driving better diagnostics today.

In this session, learn a bit about the history of Node.js, why developers are so interested in it, and what's coming next from Microsoft and the open source project to address Node developers' needs.
