+I learend little bit of a history about how & why node was started. How unstable, but
+still fun it was to work with at it's early days. How it matured and got deployed into
+production at [Yammer][] and elsewhere. Why companies like Microsoft invest into nodejs
+and how it became first class citizen on windows, which was not easy and required whole
+new platform layer today known as [libuv][]. Learned how it can be used to write nodejs
+like servers in **C** and how much work is still ahead to make it better. Use of [libuv][]
+has expanded far beyound nodejs: Mozilla's own [rust][] language, [Luvit][] node for a
+Lua language and even crazy new languages like [candor][] with a dedicated VM that has
+a JIT compiler and is written by a single person.
It turns out there is a nodejs powered [karaoke bar][Bar API] in portland that has a
