This short book provides readers with a fun, breezy and yet practical introduction to Node.js, a language designed from the ground up for writing real time, scalable Internet applications. It's not intended to be a comprehensive guide or an in-depth programming tutorial, but will give you a good grounding in the language, outline what you need to get going, including installing all necessary software, and give you the confidence to start experimenting on your own.
The book should be built around a real-life example project: a stock market price monitoring application. It's a fun and easily understandable project that is used to demonstrate the concepts outlined in the book in a practical way.
This is a clear, approachable and very easy-to-follow book that will get you to to speed with Node.js in no time.
