Non-blocking I/O for the masses (WebEngDUS)
View 2018-07-12

I/O is everywhere. I/O is slow. There's no denying it. Using traditional blocking I/O calls can thus be seen as a huge contributor to slow applications. This talk discusses how non-blocking I/O can help in building high performance, event-driven, reactive, concurrent, single-threaded applications (bingo). Don't worry, no need to install Node.js and npm install half the internet. Let's build high-performance applications from scratch with whatever language you're most comfortable with!
