Node.js Addon Development Made Easy with Nad

Node.js addons are a powerful feature that gives us the ability to drop down to low level C or C++ for performance and to leverage existing libraries. Thorsten Lorenz, Senior Software Engineer at NodeSource, gives a rundown on the basics of addons and how they work. He then gives a demo of nad, a node addon developer tool he built that shows that with the proper tooling, developing addons is easy and useful.
