Node.js Native AddOns from zero to hero


This talk is about creating Node.js interfaces for native libraries written in C or C++. It starts with various situations in which you need to build native addons and the common problems in doing that. I'll discuss the reference provided by the new N-API (Node-API) that helps mantainers to support a wide variety of Node.js releases without needing recompilation or abstraction layers. With all these tools and knowledge I'll show you how to build some addons from scratch and how to convert existing addons using the new N-API. The last part is related to future developments about addons.
