Node.js is still relatively new compared to platforms like .NET and Java, but has become hugely popular in a short time. This session will explore the significance of Node.js as both an alternative and a companion to .NET.

Harry will share how you can compare and contrast Node.js and .NET, highlighting their distinctive features and some surprising similarities. Through understanding the execution model of Node.js, he will describe its scaling profile and its most compelling use cases.

You will learn how to work through creating a working Node.js application, covering the tools and techniques that real-world projects need, including build automation, unit testing and integration testing.

The session will go into detail on the asynchronous programming model of Node.js, examining a variety of patterns for writing asynchronous code in JavaScript. You will learn how JavaScript and Node.js sidestep some of the complexity and gotchas of asynchronous programming in C#/.NET.

Harry will also share the new and upcoming changes to JavaScript that simplify asynchronous programming further and address flaws in other aspects of the language.

Finally, you will learn how common principles in Node.js are applicable to .NET, how some aspects of Node.js are reflected in .NET Core especially, and how to integrate Node.js with .NET to benefit from the best of both worlds.
