JavaScript on the server? You bet! Node.js is a JavaScript framework that can be used to create scalable, high-performance web applications. Using asynchronous I/O, the server can do more than one thing at a time, a key requirement for real-time apps like chat, games, and live statistics.

Node.js in Action, Second Edition is a thoroughly-revised new edition that starts at square one and guides readers through all the features, techniques, and concepts needed to build production-quality Node applications. The book dives into the many different uses of Node: traditional web applications, real-time web applications, non-web network applications, and even desktop applications. It also covers the ongoing development of Node via io.js and the emerging ECMAScript 6 features.

Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.
