Objective

As applications are moving to the web paradigm more and more, building a web based chat application that works across browsers remains tricky. This talk describes the decisions and insights made during the process of building a bosh server on Node.js

Description

node-xmpp-bosh is a bosh (and now websocket) server that speaks xmpp. This talk covers the reason node was chosen, the design of the server itself, interesting discoveries during the process and the performance characteristics. node-xmpp-bosh itself is an open source project hosted at http://code.google.com/p/node-xmpp-bosh/
