in JavaScript

I remember when I thought Script.aculo.us, MooTools, Prototype, Backbone, and jQuery were all revolutionary. Now we have Node.js and the ability to run a server using JS.

My understanding is that Node is a C++ app that wraps the Google V8 engine and extends its ability. You get access to the underlying C++ by way of JavaScript. Incredible.

I have a distinct appreciation for JS because of it being based on the ECMAScript specification, which is the same standard that ActionScript3 was created. Looks like it might be time to transpile some my old AS3 files over into JS.
