    Javascript is one of the most used languages. Until recently it was mostly used on the client side, in your browser.

    Node.js is changing that. While there were other attempts to bring javascript to the server side, Node.js is the first one to get real traction.

    It's a blend of raw speed of the Google's V8 javascript engine,
    evented non-blocking io and minimalist design that just gets out of the way.

    In this talk I'll present the ideas behind Node.js and discuss where
    it fits best within your production stack.

    But a lot of Rails developers are still on 2.3.x for various reasons.

    features of Rails 3.0 and 3.1.
