A look at using Node.js to write a log collection server and also log submission clients. My first experiment with Node.js, which really impresses me with how easy it is to write flexible, powerful and efficient code in Node.js.
Last year Digg released a Streaming API which exposes real-time activity on its site. It's available via JSONP, so this tutorial takes a quick look at dynamically populating a Flot.js graph using the API's data.
This is the second part in the Django, jQuery & Ajax tutorial series, and takes a look at improving our first stab at Ajaxy functionality with something a bit... how shall we put it... less awful, by using custom Django views to respond to Ajax requests.
A quick look at a bringing the Django patterns for urlpatterns.py and views.py to Node.js.
Spending some time with Node.js I've begun to realize what a pain callbacks can be when they become sufficiently deep. That said, after sufficient nesting it's pretty easy to see how callbacks become very similar to a pipeline (in the simplest case, anyway).
A look at an example of using Ajax to create synchronized and dynamic graphics. To keep things simple the backend creating the data is a one line php script, but the concept applies equally well to real services.
