eBook Description:

Professional Node.js: Building Javascript Based Scalable Software: Learn to build fast and scalable software in JavaScript with Node.js

Node.js is a powerful and popular new framework for writing scalable network programs using JavaScript. This no nonsense book begins with an overview of Node.js and then quickly dives into the code, core concepts, and APIs. In-depth coverage pares down the essentials to cover debugging, unit testing, and flow control so that you can start building and testing your own modules right away.

  • Covers node and asynchronous programming main concepts
  • Addresses the basics: modules, buffers, events, and timers
  • Explores streams, file systems, networking, and automated unit testing
  • Goes beyond the basics, and shares techniques and tools for debugging, unit testing, and flow control

Node.js is a popular framework that allows you to build fast, highly scalable network programs using JavaScript. However, it comes with a learning curve. This in-depth guide walks you through the installation of the Node.js platform and then focuses on the essentials of creating and loading modules; using buffers to manipulate, encode, and decode binary data; simplifying event binding with the event emitter pattern; and more. Covering everything from scheduling the execution of functions using timers to creating and controlling external processes, this book gets you up and running and building and testing your own modules.

If you already know JavaScript and are curious about the power of Node.js, then this is the ideal book for you.
