How 3 Companies Are Using Node.js

Node.js is still all the rage on the Web. But how is it actually being put to use? It's still in its early stages of development, so in many ways its dangerous for production use. None the less, a few companies are already using it. Kevin McCarthy talked to three companies - Yammer, Proxlet and Bocoup - about how each one is using Node.js.

  • Yammer - Yammer is using Node.js as a proxy for its API.
  • Proxlet - Proxlet's Chrome plugin is built entirely in JavaScript and MongoDB. It uses Node.js as its proxy.
  • Bocoup - Bocoup built an IRC bot using Node.js that it uses for various purposes, such as logging and generating statistics.

What are some other real world uses of Node.js?
