Building and scaling a web based IDE is a big challenge, and doing this on Node.JS gave us a lot of unique challenges. Cloud9 is built using a full Ajax client, and besides Node.JS utilizes a full set of new HTML5 features and offline support. In this talk Rik will go through a quick demo of Cloud9 IDE, and then into the unique architecture and design decisions that we made to build Cloud9 IDE. This will be of interest to medium to advanced level programmers, who want to know more about Cloud9 IDE, Node.JS and scalable app development.
