Where Node.js Meets iOS

Writing iOS apps in Javascript is not a new idea, anymore, at least since companies like Appcelerator (Titanium) built entire business models around corresponding frameworks. And yet, Apple manages to open up two exciting new possibilities during the WWDC 2013: The release of the JavaScriptCore Framework as a public API on iOS and OS X, as well as the announcement of an Objective-C to Javascript Bridge. I'd like to talk to you about my experiences with these new bridge-technologies, the new ways in which you can use them and finally present to you my own project; Node.app -- a Node.js implementation for iOS.
