Gentle Introduction to Node.js (not only) for Java devs

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Maybe you've already heard it - Node.js is becoming the new platform of choice in many development teams and production systems, known for its flexibility, simplicity and having a plethora of ready-to-use libraries. And many of us, (not only) Java developers, are curious what's in it that it drives so many people away (not only) from Java.

As an active Javaist & JavaScripter, Lukas can offer interesting perspective on what Node.js offers as an alternative to the mature Java ecosystem. So, tighten your seat bealts, it will be a wild ride!

In this session, Lukas will introduce Node.js and compare it with Java:

  • asynchronous flows / promises

  • functional programming in JS

  • parallelization

  • packaging

  • modularity

  • language features from ECMAScript 6 (also known as ES 2015)

  • differences between browser- and server-side JS

  • running JS on the JVM

  • Node.js compared to Java EE
