A culmination of the brightest Drupal minds in the technology hub of the world


Drupal and Node.js

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
  • How the Nodejs module integrates Drupal and Node.js
  • Current features of the Nodejs module
  • Where the Nodejs module is going
