KeystoneJS for Drupal Developers

How developers of the most powerful PHP CMS can approach the most powerful Node.JS CMS

It's hard for people in the Drupal community not to notice the explosion of Open Source frameworks available in JavaScript and the flowering of Node.JS, and harder still to know where to start learning about it. In this talk, we will dive into the Node.JS ecosystem via KeystoneJS CMS, and use it as an entryway into the world of the MEAN stack. We will step through the usual Drupal conceptual model of content types, views and template files and dig into the equivalents in KeystoneJS. Along the way, we'll learn a little about Mongo, Express, and the event-driven nature of Node.JS.
