Accepted Session
Short Form
Scheduled: Thursday, June 28, 2012 from 1:30 – 2:15pm in B204


Learn about the magic that powers nodejs and has enabled other projects
to do cross platform non blocking io goodness.


libuv provides a library for building cross platform non blocking
daemons and language environments. Learn about all of the magic that is
done behind the scenes to make node.js and other platforms such an
enjoyable experience to program in and so screaming fast for lots of io.

On top of all of that libuv is the best way today to take some C code
and have it run on top of Linux/BSD/Windows.
