About

Node.js is a popular choice for teams that need to design, build, test, deploy, maintain, and monitor large-scale distributed systems. Starting with a detailed overview of the Node.js architecture, this book covers topics that will help in application development, testing, deployment, and maintenance.

You will learn about concurrency, event loops, callbacks and streams. Furthermore, step-by-step instructions on deploying applications to providers such as DigitalOcean and Heroku will be provided, including information on setting up load balancers and proxies. Message queues and other techniques for managing state and session data at scale will also be covered.

A series of examples on deploying your Node.js applications in production environments are provided, including a discussion on setting up continuous deployment and integration for your team. Popular tools for testing, deploying, building, and monitoring Node.js applications are covered, helping you get up and running quickly.

Features
  • Gain comprehensive information on scaling Node.js both vertically and horizontally in the cloud and across virtual machines
  • Learn how to use Gulp, Mocha, Chai, PhantomJS, Git, Browserify, Docker, and other tools to construct a simple, fast, and intelligent build-and-deploy system
  • Utilize the easy-to-understand examples to explore data caching strategies, application monitoring tips and tricks, and other professional techniques that are useful for maintaining lightweight, fast, and robust applications

Authors

Sandro Pasquali

Sandro Pasquali formed a technology company named Simple in 1997, that sold the world's first JavaScript-based application development framework and was awarded several patents for deployment and advertising technologies that anticipated the future of Internet-based software. Node represents, for him, the natural next step in the inexorable march towards the day when JavaScript powers nearly every level of software development.

Sandro has led the design of enterprise-grade applications for some of the largest companies in the world, including Nintendo, Major League Baseball, Bang and Olufsen, LimeWire, AppNexus, Conde Nast, and others. He has displayed interactive media exhibits during the Venice Biennial, won design awards, built knowledge management tools for research institutes and schools, and started and run several start-ups. Always seeking new ways to blend design excellence and technical innovation, he has made significant contributions across all levels of software architecture, from data management and storage tools to innovative user interfaces and frameworks.

He is the author of Deploying Node.js, also by Packt Publishing, which aims to help developers get their work in front of others.

Sandro runs a software development company in New York and trains corporate development teams interested in using Node and JavaScript to improve their products. He spends the rest of his time entertaining his beautiful daughter, and his wife.
