I had a chance to talk - along with my friend and colleague Steve Seow - about Node.js and Windows Azure this past Saturday in beautiful Salt Lake City. We had a really enthusiastic audience, building Node.JS application from scratch and learning about the benefits of the Windows Azure PaaS model, which facilitates and simplifies the process of scaling-out web solutions on-demand. I promised them to publish the PowerPoint deck that we used... so here it is: Node.js presentation deck.
In case you are interested, I also had a chance to provide a technical review for a Node.js article that my friend Bruno Terkaly wrote for MSDN Magazine online. It can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/magazine/hh875173.aspx.
For more information about Node.js, and why it is becoming such a relevant platform for web development, visit the official website, located here: http://www.nodejs.org. Also, the Windows Azure website includes great information on how to deploy your Node.js solutions to the cloud: http://www.windowsazure.com/en-us/develop/nodejs/.
Last, but not least, my friend Aaron Stannard put together a github repository that includes tutorial, examples, and code samples: https://github.com/Aaronontheweb/introtonode.
