5 Talks to Learn More About Node.js

I know that we all learn differently and one of the easiest ways to learn is visually. Your time is important, so I've compiled a list of some of the most relevant Node.js talks that have occurred over the past few years.

History of Node.js

Ryan Dahl

Ryan created Node.js in 2009. This tells the story of how it came to be and why it was created. A must watch for anyone interested in how it all started.

RESTful services with Node.js

Nick Nisi

In this video Nick goes through the basics of Node.js and NPM but then jumps into building a RESTful application using Express. Full of good information especially if you’re not familiar with Express and Connect.


Tom Hughes-Croucher

If you’ve ever wondered how to build something with the Streams API this is the talk for you. Tom covers everything from a basic http streaming server to performance implications of each action.

Intro to hapi

Eran Hammer

Great presentation for anyone interested in learning how large scale applications are built and the tools used to build them. Eran is renowned for his work on OAuth and now leads development on Walmart Labs’s mobile backend effort. In this video he introduces the hapi web framework.

Intro to MongoDB with Node.js

Tyler Neylon

This is a great intro into MongoDB and using it with Node.js. Tyler goes over the native Mongo driver and the object modeling framework Mongoose.

These are only a few of the great talks out there. We’re also working to compile a great permanent resource of the talks that not only we do but other do on Node.js, you can check them out over at our Node Presentations page.
