Learning Node.js brings together the knowledge and JavaScript code needed to build master the Node.js platform and build server-side applications with extraordinary speed and scalability.

You'll start by installing and running Node.js, understanding the extensions it uses, and quickly writing your first app. Next, building on the basics, you'll write more capable application servers and extend them with today's most powerful Node.js tools and modules. Finally, you'll discover today's best practices for testing, running Node.js code on production servers, and writing command-line utilities.

Throughout the book, author Marc Wandschneider teaches by walking the reader line-by-line through carefully crafted examples, demonstrating proven techniques for creating highly efficient applications and servers.


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

If you're a developer who wants to build server-side web applications with Node.js, Learning Node.js is your fatest route to success.
