Node.js and Drupal

Presented by

Drupal is a powerful, flexible platform for building applications, but not something that handles realtime notifcations easily.

Node.js is a breath of fresh air in the Open Source web server landscape. It makes writing applications that handle thousands of open connections at the same time easy.

The Nodejs module integrates Drupal with Node.js, allowing for the best of both worlds.

This presentation will address:

  • Why realtime
  • Why Node.js

  • Current features of the Nodejs module
  • Where the Nodejs module is going
