In today's world of development frameworks, JavaScript is everywhere - from the client to the server - providing agility and greater developer productivity. However, there has been no server-side JavaScript framework that offers the same flexibility and the freedom provided with PHP like scripting environments. Now developers can take advantage of the new JavaScript framework, Jaggery, to meet this demand.

In today's world of development frameworks, JavaScript is everywhere - from the client to the server - providing agility and greater developer productivity. However, there has been no server-side JavaScript framework that offers the same flexibility and the freedom provided with PHP like scripting environments. Now developers can take advantage of the new JavaScript framework, Jaggery, to meet this demand.

As a pure JavaScript server-side scripting engine, Jaggery combines all the strengths of JavaScript with flexibility and freedom at both the development and deployment stages. Other server-side JavaScript mechanisms restrict developers to a framework-specific structure or patterns, which demand an additional learning curve. By contrast, with Jaggery, any developers who are versed in JavaScript have everything they need to get going.

This webinar will start off with an introduction to Jaggery and a walk through the core API. It will then showcase the three-step guide on how to get a Jaggery app up and running.

Participants also will learn

  • How to get started with Jaggery.
  • How to work with the request, response and session.
  • How to expose JSON without doing any extra work.
  • How to create and read feeds.
  • How to persist with relational storage and the use of a metadata store.
  • How to address file handling.
