Pete Kruckenberg - Apache/Perl vs. node.js June 7, 2011

from Technometria with Phil Windley· ·

As part of his work for the Utah Education Network, Pete Kruckenberg originally began a project using Apache and Perl. A few months into the process, his group chose to switch to node.js to complete the project. He speaks about why the change was made, including both the postive aspects, as well as some of the downsides of the new architecture. His technical discussion presents a useful example of a typical software project and how changes are sometimes made in the middle of the work.
