Learning Node.js
A Hands-On Guide to Building Web Applications in JavaScript

Node.js makes it far easier to create fast, compact, and reliable web/network applications and web servers, and is rapidly becoming indispensable to modern web developers.

Learning Node.js brings together the knowledge and JavaScript code you need to build master the Node.js platform and build server-side applications with extraordinary speed and scalability.

You’ll start by installing and running Node.js, understanding the extensions it uses, and quickly writing your first app. Next, building on the basics, you’ll write more capable application servers and extend them with today’s most powerful Node.js tools and modules. Finally, you’ll discover today’s best practices for testing, running Node.js code on production servers, and writing command-line utilities.

Throughout the book, author Marc Wandschneider teaches by walking you line-by-line through carefully crafted examples, demonstrating proven techniques for creating highly efficient applications and servers.

  • Build Node.js solutions that leverage your current JavaScript skills
  • Master Node.js nonblocking IO and async programming
  • Handle more requests and increase your application’s flexibility
  • Use and write your own modules
  • Perform common JSON/web server tasks
  • Use browsers to generate pages on the fly via Ajax calls and template libraries
  • Simplify development with the express framework
  • Create database back-ends using popular NoSQL and relational databases
  • Deploy and run Node.js apps on Unix/OS X or Windows servers
  • Take advantage of multiprocessor hardware
  • Support virtual hosts and SSL/HTTPS security
  • Test Node.js programs that mix synchronous, async, and RESTful server API functionality

 

Synopsis:

Node.js makes it easier than it’s ever been to create fast, compact, and reliable web/network applications and web servers. Building on extraordinary “word-of-mouth,” Node.js adoption is accelerating — rapidly reaching “critical mass” as a must-know web development technology. Now, for the first time, there’s a 100% practical tutorial and reference for every Node.js newcomer or recent adopter.

 

Unlike other Node.js books, Learning Node.js doesn’t simply tour the API or overwhelm you with theory. Instead, pioneering web developer Marc Wandschneider brings together all the knowledge you need to build outstanding web solutions with Node.js. After introducing the technology and demonstrating why it’s so valuable and exciting, Wandschneider shows how to:

  • Build server-side solutions that leverage JavaScript skills you may already have
  • Write faster, more compact, more reliable applications and web servers
  • Make the most of Node.js’s key features and modules
  • Work with popular NoSQL and relational databases
  • Perform common JSON/web server tasks
  • And much more
