Présentation de l'éditeur

Node.js. It’s the latest in a long line of “Are you cool enough to use me?” programming languages, APIs, and toolkits. In that sense, it lands squarely in the tradition of Rails,and Ajax, and Hadoop, and even to some degree iPhone programming and HTML5.

Dig a little deeper, and you’ll hear that Node.js (or, as it’s more briefly called by many,simply “Node”) is a server-side solution for JavaScript, and in particular, for receiving and responding to HTTP requests. If that doesn’t completely boggle your mind, by the time the conversation heats up with discussion of ports, sockets, and threads, you’ll tend to glaze over. Is this really JavaScript? In fact, why in the world would anyone want to run JavaScript outside of a browser, let alone the server?

The good news is that you’re hearing (and thinking) about the right things. Node really is concerned with network programming and server-side request/response processing.The bad news is that like Rails, Ajax, and Hadoop before it, there’s precious little clear information available. There will be, in time — as there now is for these other “cool”frameworks that have matured — but why wait for a book or tutorial when you might be able to use Node today, and dramatically improve the maintainability.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Just right if you don't want to spend more than 30 minutes on Node 5 septembre 2011

Node.js, or simply "Node", is a server-side solution for running JavaScript (it by itself is NOT JavaScript; "in fact Node is a C program" that you feed JavaScript), and in particular, for receiving and responding to HTTP requests. ... and is "concerned with network programming and server-side request/response processing."

For getting started, the book(let) includes the code for a basic "Hello World" program, and links to download Node from There is an example and description of using JSON with Node, the evils in eval() in Node, and how to get past the evils (like use JSON.parse() )

Given that this is a short book; 18 pages including the cover, TOC, and other blank pages, where does this leave you?
Well, if you are a Node programmer, then this book offers nothing.
If you want to get started with Node, then there are other, more detailed books out there.
If you are a non-programmer, do not have the time or inclination to delve into a 300 page book, but still want to know at least **something** about Node, no matter how basic that may be, then, well, this book may be for you. You could get information on Node from a lot of technical websites out there, so spending $$ on this book may not be a good idea, in my opinion. What does make this book a bargain is the fact that it is free.

Very good introduction that goes just to the meat. A few well chosen examples that gives an excellent peek into node.

This kind of books are great to me because sometimes you don't want to get involve in the whole topic but instead, know a general point of view.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Perfect Amount of Information... 3 décembre 2013

I'm in the process of getting up to speed on the plethora of Web-related tools and technologies after YEARS of desktop application development. I've been reading up on several "hefty" technologies (e.g., ASP.NET MVC), and keep coming across small references to Node. I went in search of something that would give me an absolute "crash course" on Node so I could continue my heavier reading a little more informed and comfortable in my new landscape. "What Is Node" totally lived up to its reputation, delivering a quick but significant understanding of Node is only about 45 minutes (and that's WITH kids, lots of loud noises, and a glass of wine to bring the day to an end).

I wasn't looking for perfect or exhaustive. I was looking for the ability to understand where "Node.js" would fit in a conversation with colleagues, and "What Is Node" delivered.

This is a great quick read, with a great dose of objectivity, of an important technology. The title's question is answered quite well!

There's a great explanation of the round-trip JSON problem plus converters (small events), and I liked the "medium-event" perspective regarding the web. At the same time, McLaughlin warns us about "inertia of familiarity" (aka functional fixedness), which is all too common in IT (probably because of the complexity of solutions and the effort involved in learning how to use the latest "hammer.") Not all web servers should be run with node.js (and not all forms should be submitted with ajax, etc.). If you visit the MEANJS web site, you won't get this perspective and you could be taking a huge risk.

We need more books with this kind of professional engineering perspective (strengths and weaknesses).
