In Detail

Node.js is a modern development stack focused on providing an easy way to build scalable network software. Backed by a growing number of large companies and a rapidly increasing developer base, Node is revolutionizing the way that software is being built today. Powered by Google’s V8 engine and built out of C++ modules, this is a JavaScript environment for the enterprise.

Mastering Node.js will take the reader deep into this exciting development environment. Beginning with a comprehensive breakdown of its innovative non-blocking evented design, Node’s structure is explained in detail, laying out how its blazingly fast I/O performance simplifies the creation of fast servers, scalable architectures, and responsive web applications.

Mastering Node.js takes you through a concise yet thorough tour of Node's innovative evented non-blocking design, showing you how to build professional applications with the help of detailed examples.

Learn how to integrate your applications with Facebook and Twitter, Amazon and Google, creating social apps and programs reaching thousands of collaborators on the cloud. See how the Express and Path frameworks make the creation of professional web applications painless. Set up one, two, or an entire server cluster with just a few lines of code, ready to scale as soon as you’re ready to launch. Move data seamlessly between databases and file systems, between clients, and across network protocols, using a beautifully designed, consistent, and predictable set of tools.

Mastering Node.js contains all of the examples and explanations you’ll need to build applications in a short amount of time and at a low cost, running on a scale and speed that would have been nearly impossible just a few years ago.

Approach

Packed with practical examples and explanations, Mastering Node.js contains everything you need to take your applications to the next level.

Who this book is for

If you’ve ever built a web page and would like to build network software using the language and style you already know, Node will make that process simple, and even fun. If you understand what a server is, what a client is, and how to write JavaScript, you are already halfway to mastering Node.js!

    Comments about oreilly Mastering Node.js:

    Mastering NodeJS is quite different from other books, it doesn't just get you started with NodeJS, only to introduce you to a framework and leave you confused about the core codes. It takes you on a journey into the world of concurrent request, C10k Requests, Asynchronous and Event Driven Programming, Input/Output Streams and much more.
