Node: Up and Running

Request Review copy

Sebastopol, CA—"Node.js is powering sites for everyone from the hotest startups like Twitter, Uber, and Voxer to the world's biggest companies like Walmart, LinkedIn, and Yahoo!," says coauthor Tom Hughes-Croucher (@sh1mmer).

"We believe this book provides the insights that developers need to get started with Node and bring the advantages the technology offers to their work."

Node: Up and Running (O'Reilly Media, $34.99 USD) shows you how Node scales up to support large numbers of simultaneous connections across multiple servers, and scales down to let you create quick one-off applications with minimal infrastructure. Built on the V8 JavaScript engine that runs Google Chrome, Node is already winning the hearts and minds of many companies, including Google and Yahoo! This book shows you why.
