Node.js

Why Node.js
Node.js is an open source JavaScript framework that allows us to create scalable network applications capable of serving content to meet high peek demand. Building on the strengths of the Node.js platform, Whiteboard-IT structures your Node.js application to be responsive, creating a polished experience for your customers.

Leverage The Power Of Open Source
Since Node.js is open source, there are no licensing fees. Where other platforms generally require licenses to be purchased for everything from the operating system to the database, Node.js works best along side other open source software. This translates to a dramatically lower upfront investment than many competing platforms.

Doing More With Less
Have you ever used a program that forced you to wait for some period of time after performing some task – pausing for a moment before returning control? Generally, this behavior is due to the application performing some series of steps required to complete the task – one step at a time, one after another. With Node.js we are able to provide you with an application that is highly scalable, ridiculously responsive and stable beyond compare. In utilizing asynchronous nature of Node.js, your applications can be designed in a manner that leads to faster and more responsive applications. More requests are handled and more data processed with your valuable system resources.

Who are we?
Whiteboard-IT has been active in the CommonJS movement since 2009. We have contributed to and authored open source libraries for Node.js and CommonJS.

Bogart: a super-fast routing framework for Node.js. See Nathan’s article on http://howtonode.org.
Narwhal-Lib: the best parts of the Narwhal standard library for use on Node.js.
Traits.js: a framework for creating objects based upon composable traits.
Wu: functional programming for JavaScript.
Observable: Publish and subscribe to events in a generic, platform independent way. Used by FirePHP companion.
