Node.js is a server-side JavaScript platform using an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model allowing users to build fast and scalable data-intensive applications running in real time.

This book gives you an excellent starting point, bringing you straight to the heart of developing web applications with Node.js. You will progress from a rudimentary knowledge of JavaScript and server-side development to being able to create, maintain, deploy and test your own Node.js application. You will understand the importance of transitioning to functions that return Promise objects, and the difference between fs, fs/promises and fs-extra. With this book you’ll learn how to use the HTTP Server and Client objects, data storage with both SQL and MongoDB databases, real-time applications with Socket. IO, mobile-first theming with Bootstrap, microservice deployment with Docker, authenticating against third-party services using OAuth, and use some well known tools to beef up security of Express 4.16 applications.

What you will learn:

Install and use Node.js 10 for both development and deployment
Use the Express 4.16 application framework
Work with REST service development using the Restify framework
Use data storage engines such as MySQL, SQLITE3, and MongoDB
Use User authentication methods with OAuth2
Perform Real-time communication with the front-end using Socket.IO
Implement Docker microservices in development, testing and deployment
Perform unit testing with Mocha 5.x, and functional testing with Puppeteer 1.1.x
Work with HTTPS using Let’s Encrypt, and application security with Helmet

This book is for anybody looking for an alternative to the “P” languages (Perl, PHP, and Python), or anyone looking for a new paradigm of server-side application development. You should have at least a rudimentary understanding of JavaScript and web application development.
