Drupal is a fantastic platform to build all kinds of solutions, but like all systems it also has its limits, and it makes sense to integrate with additional systems to be able to provide to go past these limits. Many of these external systems are based on Javascript, whether it's to build real-time backend services with node.js, mobile apps with PhoneGap or complex user interfaces with backbone.js.

In this session, we'll take a look at these systems and their integration points into Drupal. We are also going to have an honest look at the pain points that are awaiting Drupal developers unfamiliar with javascript. And of course, we will also look at plenty of examples and sources of inspiration.
