Hook.io has been an important project for Marak Squires since 2006. Charlie Robbins describes it as "a full-featured I/O framework for node.js that enables a simple way to distribute your application across multiple node.js processes using the new EventEmitter2 API and leveraging the power of Crash-only software." In this technical discussion, Marak reviews both the history of hook.io, as well as both how it works and its specifications. Node.js experts and novices will find his discussion most illuminating.
