From the Browser to node.js all the way to the database you can use and share your JavaScript!


If you didn’t think JavaScript was ubiquitous enough being in every browser you’re certainly happy now that it’s taking over as a backend platform languages and even getting embedded in to databases :)

This talk will cover the common elements of different JavaScript environments in browsers, node.js and CouchDB and various strategies for breaking up and structuring code that can be modularly used across environments.

I’ll also cover some real world use cases and a few libraries that straddle the different JavaScript worlds as well as the fate of CommonJS.
