Description

Node.js opens up the world of building scalable servers to the average programmer. While it used to take intimate knowledge of the kernel, a firm understanding of the various I/O libraries, and an awareness of the physical hardware your code was going to run on, now all that's needed is Node.js, an understanding of JavaScript, and this book. Programming Node.js is the developer's premier guide to Node.js, teaching you how to use the toolkit provided and introducing you to the Node.js landscape. This book starts off with a survey of the concepts of Node.js before diving into the deep end and building a real application to solve a real problem. Over the course of this book you'll learn how to take a Node application from its inception all the way through releasing a project. From building simple command line tools, to custom HTTP servers, to dealing with databases, Programming Node.js teaches you not only Node's APIs, but how to think in Node. So pick up this book and start creating Node applications today. What You Need: You'll need the latest version of Node (currently 0.4.8, but changing rapidly), a text editor, a computer, and the willingness to learn.
