Summary

Node.js in Practice is a collection of fully tested examples that offer solutions to the common and not-so-common issues you face when you roll out Node. You'll dig into important topics like the ins and outs of event-based programming, how and why to use closures, how to structure applications to take advantage of end-to-end JavaScript apps, and more.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.

About the Book

You've decided to use Node.js for your next project and you need the skills to implement Node in production. It would be great to have Node experts Alex Young and Marc Harter at your side to help you tackle those day-to-day challenges. With this book, you can!

Node.js in Practice is a collection of 115 thoroughly tested examples and instantly useful techniques guaranteed to make any Node application go more smoothly. Following a common-sense Problem/Solution format, these experience-fueled techniques cover important topics like event-based programming, streams, integrating external applications, and deployment. The abundantly annotated code makes the examples easy to follow, and techniques are organized into logical clusters, so it's a snap to find what you're looking for.

Written for readers who have a practical knowledge of JavaScript and the basics of Node.js.

Synopsis:

Node.js is a relatively new platform that lets software developers write the server side of web applications in JavaScript. Problem is—solid examples that show how to implement Node.js in production are still few and far between. That's exactly what this book offers.

Node.js in Practice assembles nearly 100 practical techniques that can be used when implementing Node in production. All the code is tested, instantly useful, and relevant. It's a random-access collection of fully-worked examples that offers solutions to the common-and not-so-common-issues faced when rolling out Node. It includes the ins and outs of event-based programming, how and why to use closures, how to structure applications to take advantage of end-to-end JavaScript apps, and more. The book arranges techniques into logical clusters like Events, Streams, File System, and Testing. The heavily-annotated code makes the examples easy to follow and handy cross-references show how techniques dovetail with other related examples.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.
