Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Build an application from backend to browser with Node.js, and kick open the doors to real-time event programming. With this hands-on book, youll learn how to create a social network application similar to LinkedIn and Facebook, but with a real-time twist. And youll build it with just one programming language: JavaScript.

If youre an experienced web developer unfamiliar with JavaScript, the books first section introduces you to the projects core technologies: Node.js, Backbone.js, and the MongoDB data store. Youll then launch into the project—a highly responsive, highly scalable application—guided by clear explanations and lots of code examples.

  • Learn about key modules in Node.js for building real-time apps
  • Use the Backbone.js framework to write clean browser code, and maintain better data integration with MongoDB
  • Structure project files as a foundation for code that will arrive later
  • Create user accounts and learn how to secure the data
  • Use Backbone.js templates to build the applications UIs, and integrate access control with Node.js
  • Develop a contact list to help users link to and track other accounts
  • Use Socket.io to create real-time chat functionality
  • Extend your UIs to give users up-to-the-minute information


Synopsis:

The enthusiasm behind Node doesnt just reflect the promise of server-side JavaScript. Developers also have the potential to create elegant applications with this open source framework that are much easier to maintain. Follow author Mike Wilson as he builds a social network application oriented toward real-time updates. Through this, the book shows you how to build complete applications that combine the strengths of Node, the MongoDB scalable storage solution, and the Backbone toolkit for clean application design in the browser.

  • Gain examples of all three tools in real development situations
  • Learn how to build clean, manageable code
  • Use a complete application toolkit from start to finish, server to client
  • Understand the power of JavaScript in a variety of contexts
