    • Node.js is an open source server framework
    • Node.js is free
    • Node.js runs on various platforms (Windows, Linux, Unix, Mac OS X, etc.)
    • Node.js uses JavaScript on the server

    I have some experience with it. It's one of many tools I use depending on the application. What are your questions?

    Think about it...as a baseline, to be into this game, you really, really have to be nerdy.

    And then on top of all that nerdiness, this goes even further! (says the guy who picked up a "Learn to Program in Javascript" book this weekend and went about a quarter of the way through it...).

    I'm not a massive fan of programming to be honest. My skills are more in line with using the tools and kits created by others to do forensic and red-team work currently. Luckily there is plenty of room in the IT field.

    now that you mentioned it, liking to shoot things and blowing things up may be a more important pre-requisite.

    LOL, I didn't say I was any good at programming! If it wasn't for stack overflow, I wouldn't be able to do *anything*!

    I know what you mean. Stack overflow has saved me many a time.

    As far a node.js I have installed it and written a couple scripts to run with it. I can't say I know that much about other than I was able to use it to test some integration code I was working on a couple months ago. Just remember Google and youtube are your friends when learning to code. Also, don't try to recreate the wheel unless part of your class is creating a wheel.
