Node.js: The Documentary

Back in 2008, most people thought of JavaScript as just a client-side language. But when Google's V8 appeared, young developer Ryan Dahl made the connection between non-blocking servers, V8, and JavaScript. It was by combining these key elements that he was able to create the now hugely popular Node.js.

What young Ryan Dahl probably didn't expect was how much forking drama would follow.

Join us as we delve into the origins of Node.js, meet some of its earliest contributors and explore the complicated dynamics between corporations using open source technologies and the dedicated community members who fuel their progress. Featuring interviews with Ryan Dahl (creator of Node.js), Isaac Schlueter (creator of npm) and more.
