About this book

Node.js Complete Reference Guide takes you through rudimentary knowledge of JavaScript and server-side development to create, maintain, deploy, and test your own Node.js applications. 

You will begin by learning how to use the HTTP Server and Client objects, store data with both SQL and MongoDB databases, and unit test applications with Mocha 5.x, and functionally test them with Puppeteer 1.1.x. Then, you will learn to create scalable and rich RESTful applications on the Node.js platform and write a simple HTTP request handler with self-descriptive URLs. You will learn to set accurate HTTP status codes, study how to keep your applications backward-compatible and explore some authentication techniques to secure your application. Then, you will study how Node.js has emerged as a strong candidate for developing microservices.

With this Learning Path, you will be able to use the best practices and create efficient microservices.

This Learning Path includes content from the following Packt products:

  • RESTful Web API Design with Node.js 10, Third Edition by Valentin Bojinov 
  • Node.js Web Development, Fourth Edition by David Herron 
  • Hands-On Microservices with Node.js by Diogo Resende
