In the span of an hour we'll take a look at the Node.js core and build a quick, real-time chat server (the "15-minute blog" of Node.js). We will touch on what middlewares are and why they're so cool. We'll touch very briefly on the "single page application" vs "traditional web application" debate. We'll have fun.
