Node.js is used by many companies for building performant backend services without sacrificing developer efficiency. Thanks to its approachable API and familiar syntax, Node.js is loved by engineers and used by startups and Fortune 500s alike. Backed by the world's largest package repository, its enterprise foothold is only expected to grow.

In this hands-on guide, author Thomas Hunter II proves that Node.js is just as capable as traditional enterprise platforms for building services that are observable, scalable, and resilient. Intermediate to advanced Node.js developers will find themselves integrating application code with a breadth of tooling from each layer of a modern service stack.

  • Learn why running redundant copies of the same Node.js service is necessary
  • Know which protocol to choose, depending on the situation
  • Fine-tune your application containers for use in production
  • Track down errors in a distributed setting to determine which service is at fault
  • Simplify app code and increase performance by offloading work to a reverse proxy
  • Build dashboards to monitor service health and throughput
  • Find out why so many different tools are required when operating in an enterprise environment


Thomas has contributed to dozens of enterprise Node.js services and has worked for a company dedicated to securing Node.js. He has spoken at several conferences on Node.js and JavaScript, published a book on microservices, and is an organizer of NodeSchool SF.
