Good book for novice nodejs developers,
This review is from: Node.js in Action (Paperback)
I've just started learning nodejs and this is not the first book I read about the topic.
I found out this is the best book I've read so far on the topic.
It starts from the very beginning and guide you through the whole development process.
It doesn't delve deep into low level details but I think this is due to target audience for this book.
It explains you the basics and there are a lot of good examples to get you started.
Nodejs is very extensible and there are a lot of useful packages. The book tries to cover the most useful in the daily usage.
The only bit I didn't like a lot is the development of the first application, it comes to early in the book and doesn't really help in understanding the language.
The rest of the book is well done. I'd advice this book to all nodejs novice who want to get ready to use it quickly.
