Packt published its latest title on Node this month: Node Cookbook, written by David Mark Clements. The book contains plenty of practical recipes to enable readers to build fast, efficient, scalable client-server solutions.
Node Cookbook is packed with several practical recipes to help readers understand the basics, and further to extending Node with the reader’s own modules. Readers can create their own web server to see Node’s features in action, and also work with JSON, XML, web sockets to make the most of asynchronous programming.
The book with the help of simple examples and support code, guides readers through various server side scenarios, and shows how to avoid security faux pas. It begins with showing readers how to make their own web servers, and smoothly progresses on to making full web applications, command line applications, and Node modules. Readers get to learn about interfacing with various database backends such as MySQL, MongoDB, and Redis, working with web sockets, and interfacing with network protocols, such as SMTP.
