These days, I was working with Node.js and Social Gaming. There is more support for Windows (now we have npm) and for Azure. My new links:

I/O Completion Ports
I/O completion ports provide an efficient threading model for processing multiple asynchronous I/O requests on a multiprocessor system. When a process creates an I/O completion port, the system creates an associated queue object for requests whose sole purpose is to service these requests. Processes that handle many concurrent asynchronous I/O requests can do so more quickly and efficiently by using I/O completion ports in conjunction with a pre-allocated thread pool than by creating threads at the time they receive an I/O request.

The Switch: Python to Node.js
There are many avenues to get help with hosting or deploying your node.js applications to Nodester.
apla / workflow.nodejs
Workflow processing for node.js
Every application is based on series of workflows. if your workflow is written in a program code, you have a problem. people don’t want to screw up, but they do. workflow.nodejs is an abstract async processing framework for describing workflows in simple configuration.

What are the disadvantages of using Node.js?
…Until I used Python for a server-side project and remembered how much simpler the synchronous programming style is. How cleaner your code looks. I suppose I had the Stockhold syndrom for a while there.”

Transform your IIS into a real-time pub/sub engine with Faye-Node
Faye is a simple Http Pub/Sub server initially implemented by John Coglan in Ruby, and also later ported by himself to Node.js. The version for Node.js implements the Bayeux protocol, which at first glace, many of us known as http long polling.
This project just represents another alternative to Socket.IO, which also works for client applications that are not necessarily implemented within a web browser. As many http pub/sub engines out there, Faye also uses the idea of channels for routing messages, and it ships with two message repositories out of the box, a repository that runs in memory and a repository that stores the messages in REDIS.
