Industrial-Grade Node.js

Node.js is being increasingly used in business-critical production environments – perhaps more so than any other dynamically interpreted language. While this role for JavaScript might have seemed shocking as recently as a few years ago, the techniques and tooling are now established and proven. This talk will focus on how to make Node.js-based systems robust and resilient from a design, implementation and debugging perspective. We will discuss our own experiences building, deploying and debugging Node.js-based systems — and how those experiences have influenced the direction for Node.js.
