Writing RESTful web services using Node.js - Jakob Mattsson from GrUSP on Vimeo.

Tools like Express and NoSQL-databases have made it easy to write web applications using Node.js. But what if we don’t need to serve HTML? What if we don’t need to do templating, CSS and pretty animations? What if we only want to provide an HTTP-interface to our data?

This talk will be about tips and tricks for building RESTful web services using Node.js. It’ll discuss challenges, pitfalls and shortcuts. It will deal with authentication, declarative ways to describe your data structures and validation.

If you’re serious about building a backend able to serve any kind of application or provide a public API for your users, and doing it without pain, this is a talk for you.
