"stay hungry, stay foolish"

I think this is the future of debugging code

Talk to Riak through the excellent riak-js node library by Francisco Treacy (oldie but goodie)

Riak Basics

  • Data in Riak is grouped buckets(effectively namespaces)
  • Basic operations are: Get, save, delete, search, map, reduce
  • Eventual consistency managed through N, R, and W bucket parameters.
  • Put everthing into Riak is JSON

izs:

It’s fairly common these days to think of JavaScript as a sort of “assembly language for the web”. After all, it’s the language that is natively supported by web browsers, making it the most widely deployed runtime in history. With Node, we have a very relevant general purpose non-browser stack…

"NodeStack" describes the combination of Node.js, MongoDB and SmartOS. A set of technologies growing in popularity for modern, real-time, web and mobile application development.
Node.js can be used successfully with many different databases and operating systems, but developers are discovering unique advantages of MongoDB and SmartOS when architecting solutions that require high agility, flexibility and performance.

A dip in the SPA or jump into Node?

A Dip in the SPA: 1st look at a Single Page App in HTML/JavaScript

Ward Bell is steamed up about SPAs (“Single Page Applications”) as he tries to gauge the present and future prospects for HTML business applications. A typical SPA is a single shell whose contents are repeatedly replaced with new and revisited app pages as the user navigates the app. These pages are created and maintained locally by client-side JavaScript. A SPA app in a browser is largely self-sufficient, visiting the remote host only for data and other services.

Is better (economical) fluid experience pushing small updates from the server to client using nodejs?

Gmail and HotMail are two examples of this trend. Ward thinks SPA might be a fruitful architecture for line-of-business applications, apps that rely on local state and cached data for a responsive, fluid user experience. Many familiar desktop patterns and techniques apply here including MVVM, client-side validation, entity caching and change-sets. We’ll soak in some MVC 4, Web API, jQuery, KnockoutJs and Upshot on our trip to the SPA. Prepare to get wet!
