Node.js is a server-side JavaScript environment that uses an asynchronous event-driven model. This allows Node.js to get excellent performance based on the architectures of many Internet applications. node.js just started about 2 years ago but it catches a lot of industry momentum since then.

It’s not mad to run node.js on ASP.NET platform. Scott Hanselman just posted an interesting blog on Installing and Running node.js applications within IIS on Windows - Are you mad?  In the blog, he talks about

  • What's node.js?
  • Why does node.js matter?
  • Why would one want node.js to run on Windows and IIS?
  • Step to step how to run node.js on Windows?
  • Fooling around with WCAT (Web Capacity Analysis Tool) and node

Take a look of Scott’s blog if you are interested to know more about running node.js with IIS on windows.
