Wednesday, 19 August 2020

This book shows how to implement a series of best practices and design patterns to help create efficient and robust Node.js applications. Authors Mario Casciaro and Luciano Mammino kick off by exploring the basics of Node.js, analyzing its asynchronous event driven architecture and its fundamental design patterns. They then show how to build asynchronous control flow patterns with callbacks, promises and async/await.


Other topics covered include Node.js streams, and more advanced concepts such as Universal JavaScript, scalability and messaging patterns for building enterprise-grade distributed applications.
