Learn to build scalable software in JavaScript with Node.js

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.

  • Addresses querying, reading from, and writing to files
  • Explores streams, file systems, networking, and automated unit testing
  • Details how to read and write streams of data
  • Zeroes-in on building TCP and HTTP servers and clients
  • Reviews using datagrams, testing and debugging modules, and controlling the callback flow
  • Shows how to develop real-time web applications using Connect, Express, and Socket.IO
  • Walks you through connecting to MySQL, CouchDB, and MongoDB
