The era of multi-core affects all programs written - independent of its language or implementation. Writing computational intensive code should make use of multi-core abilities like IO operations should make use of standard event loop features.
In order to make the whole topic a little bit more popular I've decided to write a little article on SitePoint about Parallel.js. Also I will give a talk about the whole topic at the ParallelCon 2016. Last year the conference was a lot of fun and very well organized, so I hope to meet many interesting people and hear some great talks again. The conference will take place at the beginning of April. If you still think about what conferences to attend, then I can just recommend the ParallelCon - it's actually one of the best.
Finally, I have an article about RxJS in the pipeline, which should be published in one of the next weeks. This is a nice complementary article to Parallel.js. Also it sets the tone for modern stream programming with events alias reactive programming.
