Coffeescript on Node.Js

Coffeescript on Node.Js Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What if you were to marry CoffeeScript to Node.js? Youd get one powerful tool for server-side JavaScript programming. This hands-on reference shows you how to build elegant and responsive Internet services by combining these two technologies—ideal whether youre coming from a traditional server-side language like PHP or Python, or from client-side JavaScript development.

CoffeeScript makes writing JavaScript applications easier, with less code and fewer errors. And Node.js is an event-based framework that enables you to write non-blocking Internet services. Together, theyre the dynamic duo. With this book, youll learn the programming aspects, project organization, and test automation required for building CoffeeScript applications on Node.js. All code is available in GitHub.

  • Learn about the CoffeeScript language, and how it interacts with the JavaScript ecosystem
  • Discover how to build web services with Node.js—the programming framework for Googles V8 JavaScript engine
  • Improve your code documentation and testing skills
  • Expand your Node.js skills from the Web to other protocols such as WebSockets, and LDAP

About the Author

Henri Bergius has been living in both Helsinki and Istanbul, working with web technologies since early '90s. His background is in Midgard, a PHP content management system, and he has authored JavaScript tools and libraries, including the VIE editing toolkit and NoFlo, a flow-based programming environment.

More recently Henri has focused his development efforts on Node.js, most of that written in CoffeeScript. This has included many code examples, but more importantly several full-scale web applications, like the project controlling tool written for European Commission -funded research projects and a crisis simulation system for the defense forces of a small country in northern Europe.

He is a member of the Finnish team of Free Software Foundation Europe, and an invited expert in W3C's RDF Web Applications working group. He speaks at several conferences each year on free software and web technologies.
