Node.js in Action, Second Edition is a thoroughly revised book based on the best-selling first edition. It starts at square one and guides you through all the features, techniques, and concepts you’ll need to build production-quality Node applications.
You already know JavaScript. The trick to mastering Node.js is learning how to build applications that fully exploit its powerful asynchronous event handling and non-blocking I/O features. The Node server radically simplifies event-driven real-time apps like chat, games, and live data analytics, and with its incredibly rich ecosystem of modules, tools, and libraries, it’s hard to beat!
Based on the bestselling first edition, Node.js in Action, Second Edition is a completely new book. Packed with practical examples, it teaches you how to create high-performance web servers using JavaScript and Node. You’ll master key design concepts such as asynchronous programming, state management, and event-driven programming. And you’ll learn to put together MVC servers using Express and Connect, design web APIs, and set up the perfect production environment to build, lint, and test.
