  • Erlang and Node.JS
    2012-06-22 Erlang Central

    Videos



    The Web is moving to real-time, necessitating tight integration between the client side and the server side. One of the most favorite new approaches increasingly used across the board is to utilize Node.JS on the server side hoping to obtaining high performance, easy to deploy products tightly integrated with the client side. The usual rationale for picking up Node.JS is that the code can be shared between the client side and the server side and the fact that everyone seem to know JavaScript alr ...
