Node Web Development is a new book from Packt, that gives a practical introduction to Node, the exciting new server-side JavaScript web development stack. Written by David Herron , the book is an introduction to server-side JavaScript with Node, the Connect and Express frameworks, and using SQL or MongoDB database back-end.

Node.js, is an event-driven I/O server-side JavaScript environment based on V8. It is intended for writing scalable network programs such as web servers.

Node Web Development is the ideal companion for getting started with Node. Many different ways of working with Node are shown, including using database storage engines in applications and developing websites both with and without the Connect/Express web application framework. Readers will also get an introduction to Node’s CommonJS module system allowing them to implement an important subset of object-oriented design.

Using this book readers will get an excellent starting point straight into the heart of developing server side web applications with node. They will learn, through practical examples, how to use the HTTP Server and Client objects, the Connect and Express application frameworks, the algorithms for asynchronous execution, and use both SQL and MongoDB databases.

This book is ideal for developers who want to use JavaScript on the server side in order to build quicker, higher performing web applications. It is recommended that readers have a rudimentary understanding of JavaScript and web application development.
