In the same way that Node.js enables devs to build staggeringly fast web apps, the SitePoint Jump Start series helps readers get up to speed with new topics in just a weekend.
It’s apt then that the first book in the series is Jump Start Node.js by Don Nguyen.
Node.js lets you write front-end and back-end code in a single, unified language, enabling the development of scalable and lightning quick web applications (with the help of Google’s V8 engine). As author Don Nguyen explains in his video, Node’s unique ability can be summed up in a single word … “performance!”
Read Don’s book and you’ll learn how to:
• Develop a complete working Node.js application from start to finish
• Deploy a new application to a production server
• Scale your projects quickly and cheaply
Plus, you’ll discover how to use Twitter Bootstrap, MongoDB and Backbone.js to create fancy web apps, extend their storage, and dynamically update them.
Get the full lowdown on Jump Start Node.js, including a 6-minute screencast demonstrating a code example from the book, and some great launch deals.
