Node

Fabien A
After having a heated discussion with Denis about JavaScript and node.js (and close to come to a food fight :) I actually ended up finding a really good article making making a really good case for node. The best one being "Node is not JavaScript". Now we're talking:

I was not good at realizing the difference so that is not really your fault. 

Now I get what you were saying. And I agree with you, this piece of technology is really cool. I can see why you were so excited about that. And the additional good side is that it got me research more about that. More knowledge is good.

Enjoy your long week-end. Maybe I will see you at the Python meetup next Thursday. I will be doing a lightning talk here about Conda.

Cheers,

Fabien

Makes a lot of sense now!

Yes when I refer to Javascript I actually mean NodeJS.

Interesting discussion there....

So, is JavaScript cool or is it NodeJS? Or, is it both:)

Now, where does web assembly fit into all these?

Cheers,

Re: Node

It is not that Java Script is not cool. It brings a lot of cool stuffs on a table. But within a browser, it is not the latest fastest language on earth for many reason including DOM manipulation and resource sharing. Chrome is actually using the V8 engine which is the same used by Node (https://developers.google.com/v8/intro). Things are different for each browser. Jerome would need to comment on web assembly. I got the gist of it through his explanation and that seems cool but I haven't played with it yet.

Re: Node

Can you provide some context on the discussion that prompted your investigation? We have been using Javascript in the browser for Geo stuff for a long time now. node.js wasn’t around when we developed the bulk of our server-side tech.

Javascript is very fast these days, even in browsers. The trick with browsers is to not touch the DOM until you have to, and try to avoid unnecessary reflow.
