A clear, practical introduction to the important new web development technology for creating web server applications in JavaScript

Learning Node.js LiveLessons provides developers with a practical introduction to Node.js, an important platform for developing web and network applications.

Marc Wandschneider has more than 20 years of experience as a developer and is the author of two programming books and one other LiveLessons video training. In this video training, Marc starts by introducing Node.js, installing, and running it. The video then moves into writing JSON servers, web applications, client-side templates, and continues by covering database access to both SQL and NoSQL database servers.

After watching this video, developers will begin to understand why Node.js inspires so much passion, and they will be able to write fast, compact, and reliable applications and web server.

The second edition updates coverage of Node.js to reflect changes in the technology and how it is used in the three years since the first edition was published:

  • Explanation of Node's new versioning scheme
  • Updated coverage of Streams
  • New coverage of installation using pre-build installers rather than from source code
  • New coverage of Mongoose in the section on MongoDB
  • New information about deploying Node on Heroku and Azure
  • Expansion of coverage on testing

What You Will Learn:

  • Why Node is really exciting
  • How Node is hugely innovative and new
  • How not to be afraid of JavaScript and indeed how to embrace it
  • How to write fast, compact, and reliable application and web servers
  • How to stay up to date with the latest in web application design and techniques
