Book Description

Node.js is changing the way web apps are built. As Node.js apps are written in JavaScript, you can quickly and simply use your front-end skills to develop staggeringly fast, scalable real-time web applications.

Read this book and, in a weekend, you’ll learn how to:

  • Develop a complete working Node.js application – from start-to-finish
  • Deploy your new application to a production server
  • Scale your projects quickly and cheaply

PLUS discover how to use Twitter Bootstrap, MongoDB and Back-bone.js to create fancy web apps, extend their storage, and dy-namically update them.

About the Author

Don Nguyen’s background is in building real time trading systems to analyze every single transaction for multiple markets spanning many years. Applications had to be fast, scalable and fault tolerant. These are exactly the same principles that need to be applied to modern day web applications.


Are you a front-end engineer who is interested in looking at server-side development? If you are, then this book is for you! Author Don Nguyen, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that takes you through the complete process of building an application in Node.js.

Nguyen, begins by introducing and explaining Node.js’s features and benefits. Next, the author introduces programming with Node.js in a functional style. Next, he explores MongDB. Then, the author looks at some of the most common widgets and shows you how to use them to build a login screen and stock portfolio tracker. He continues by examining Socket.IO. Next, the author discusses how frameworks are useful in managing client-side JavaScript. Finally, the author looks at the main differences between a development and production environment.

The main benefit of this most excellent book, is seeing how your existing architectural, design, and pattern knowledge is applied to the world of Node.js. More importantly, by the end of this great book, you’ll have the skills to be able to start dissecting and solving all but the most esoteric of problems.
