    What Nodejitsu is  it’s a PAAS (acronym that stands

    for Platform as a Service)  PAAS (together with IAAS and SAAS) is a type of service model in the cloud computing industry  we make deploying and scaling web applications a breeze  the end customer doesn’t have to worry about hardware management and hosting configuration
  3. 6.

    What’s so special about it?  it’s the first platform

    entirely built on and for node.js  pretty much everything that composes it is open source on Github  highly community-focused (we love going to and sponsoring confs)  multiple clouds (Rackspace, Joyent, Azure, ..)
  4. 8.

    The early phases the technology wasn’t production ready, first year

    was spent evangelizing node to make sure it became more used and mature.  Nodejitsu is founded  $ node –v v0.2.0 2010 2011 2012/13
  5. 9.

    Private Beta  Nodejitsu is founded  $ node –v

    v0.2.0 2010 2011 2012/13  private beta  $ node –v v0.4.0 all the libraries were opensourced, distributed and maintained in order to make node more appealing to coders “we first built the ecosystem and then the business” @anoemi
  6. 10.

    Public beta and Individual Plans  public beta / paid

    plans  $ node –v v0.6.0-v0.8.0  Nodejitsu is founded  $ node –v v0.2.0 2010 2011 2012/13  private beta  $ node –v v0.4.0 other libraries were opensourced (pkgcloud and winstond amongst them) and Continuos Deployment with Github integration was added. Nodejitsu now hosts open source projects for free (
