 About the Book 

Key Features Node.js is a tremendously popular new framework for building scalable software Most programmers know some JavaScript, so learning Node.js should not be a leap Completely prepares readers to be autonomous Node.js programmer, which is an essential skill for most server-side programmers. Rather than just regurgitating the API, this book covers debugging, unit testing, and flow control -- sensitive and evolving matters to the Node.js community About the Book: Professional Node.J S: Building Javascript-based Scalable Software In spite of being young, Node.js has become incredibly popular,seeing fast growth, adoption, and press. With Node.js you caneasily build fast and highly scalable software using one of themost powerful and deployed programming language: JavaScript. The common programmer lacks the basic knowledge aboutasynchronous I/O programming and how to write functional softwareon Node.js. Node.js does require a bit of twisting of the commonprogramming paradigms, but once mastered, it provides one of themost powerful programming tools around. Node.js is a powerful and popular new framework for writingscalable network programs using JavaScript. This no nonsense bookbegins with an overview of Node.js and then quickly dives into thecode, core concepts, and APIs. In-depth coverage pares down theessentials to cover debugging, unit testing, and flow control sothat you can start building and testing your own modules rightaway. Covers node and asynchronous programming main concepts Addresses the basics: modules, buffers, events, and timers Explores streams, file systems, networking, and automated unittesting Goes beyond the basics, and shares techniques and tools fordebugging, unit testing, and flow control Contens Introduction and setup Installing node Introducing node Node core api basics Loading modules Using buffers to manipulate, encode, and decode binary data Using the event emitter pattern to simplify event binding Scheduling the execution of funct
