Session description

In just 30 months, node.js has gone from an obscure toy to the most watched development platform on GitHub. Once the next stable version ships, significant focus will move to improving the community-driven ecosystem of modules, making it easier to navigate and contribute.
In this talk, Jed will introduce the two faces of NPM, the official node.js pack­age man­ager: NPM the ecosystem, for finding existing modules and developing and publishing your own modules, and NPM the tool, for managing and streamlining node.js workflows for your own projects.
