This book shows you how to build fast, efficient, and scalable client-server solutions using the latest versions of Node. The book begins with debugging tips and tricks of the trade, and how to write your own modules. Then you’ll learn the fundamentals of streams in Node.js, discover I/O control, and how to implement the different web protocols.
You’ll find recipes for integrating databases such as:-
We also cover the options for building a web application with Express, Hapi, and Koa.
You will then learn about security essentials in Node.js and advanced optimization tools and techniques. By the end of the book, you will have acquired the level of expertise to build production-ready and scalable Node.js systems. The techniques and skills you will learn in this book are based on the best practices developed by nearForm, one of the leaders in Node implementations, who supported the work of the authors on this book.
