Identify and prevent common problems, programming errors, and anti-patterns
In Detail

Node.js is a massively popular software platform that lets you use JavaScript to easily create scalable server-side applications. It allows you to create efficient code, enabling a more sustainable way of writing software made of only one language across the full stack, along with extreme levels of reusability, pragmatism, simplicity, and collaboration. Node.js is revolutionizing the web and the way people and companies create their software.

In this book, we will take you on a journey across various ideas and components, and the challenges you would commonly encounter while designing and developing software using the Node.js platform. You will also discover the "Node.js way" of dealing with design and coding decisions.

The book kicks off by exploring the fundamental principles and components that define the platform. It then shows you how to master asynchronous programming and how to design elegant and reusable components using well-known patterns and techniques. The book rounds off by teaching you the various approaches to scale, distribute, and integrate your Node.js application.

Mario Casciaro is a software engineer and technical lead with a passion for open source. He began programming with a Commodore 64 when he was 12, and grew up with Pascal and Visual Basic. His programming skills evolved by experimenting with x86 assembly language, C, C++, PHP, and Java. His relentless work on side projects led him to discover JavaScript and Node.js, which quickly became his new passion. In his professional career, he worked with IBM for several years—first in Rome and then in the Dublin Software Lab. At IBM, Mario worked on products for brands such as Tivoli, Cognos, and Collaboration Solutions, using a variety of technologies from C to PHP and Java. He then plunged into the adventurous world of start ups to work full time on Node.js projects. He ended up working in a lighthouse, at D4H Technologies, where he led the development of a real-time platform to manage emergency operations.
