Computer Science through Streams
Readable, writable, piping, transform, duplex ... even just talking about Streams is confusing. However, Streams -- with their absurd modularity, evented nature and powerful efficiency -- might be Node.js's most compelling feature.
But how do they work? What's really happening when we say
This talk takes a low-level look at how Streams work and provides some insight into why they're so great and what can make them so complicated. Finally, we'll look at Streams in userland via important modules like through, level and more.
Spending summer 2013 as a Hacker Schooler, most of his time was guided by wondering, How does [thing] in Node work?, and then taking deep dives into answering those questions.
He enjoys sharing both those experimental experiences and what he's learned from running Node in production professionally.
