About the Author

Mario Casciaro

Mario Casciaro is a software engineer and technical lead with a passion for open source. He began programming with a Commodore 64 when he was 12, and grew up with Pascal and Visual Basic. His programming skills evolved by experimenting with x86 assembly language, C, C++, PHP, and Java. His relentless work on side projects led him to discover JavaScript and Node.js, which quickly became his new passion. In his professional career, he worked with IBM for several years—first in Rome and then in the Dublin Software Lab. At IBM, Mario worked on products for brands such as Tivoli, Cognos, and Collaboration Solutions, using a variety of technologies from C to PHP and Java. He then plunged into the adventurous world of start ups to work full time on Node.js projects. He ended up working in a lighthouse, at D4H Technologies, where he led the development of a real-time platform to manage emergency operations.

If you, like I, have transitioned to Javascript and Node.js recently, then make this book the second book you read. The first should be a beginner/intermediate level Javascript or Node.js introduction text. This takes you from beginner to expert level on all important aspects of developing professional level Node.js applications which will scale.

The writing style is easy to read, and the examples are excellent. Mario Cascario takes a no-nonsense approach to explaining the pros and cons of various tools and techniques, so you can decide for yourself which trade-offs you're willing to make.

This is an incredibly useful book and one I'd not hesitate to recommend to developers.. It's not a beginners book so go and get something like Learning Node.js: A Hands-on Guide by Marc Wandschneider first but it's definitely a book you want to get sooner rather than later because it will help you develop good habits and a deeper understanding of how and what you should be doing and why.

In my opinion a milestone for any javascript developer that wants approach professionally the node.js world.
All the concepts are treated in a clear and simple way with diagrams where needed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great content, but minor editing needed 5 Sept. 2016
By Omar D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just finished reading through this book. It feels like it doesn't take full advantage of the ES6 as it could, but nonetheless it was still an effective and enjoyable read. The patterns described are detailed in a thorough, intuitive manner which makes it easy for the reader to retain and understand.

The only minor gripe I have about this book is the lack of editing. There are a handful of grammar, spelling, and code syntax mistakes that although not difficult to mentally correct, do take you out of "the flow." Hopefully the publisher gets enough errata submissions to publish a more polished version.That being said, it is definitely not a reason to skip this book. If you are a Node developer, the information and ideas presented in this book are invaluable. Give it a go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you, Mr. Casciaro, for writing a great book 22 Oct. 2015
By Aleksandar Seovic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In the day and age when most technology books seem to be written in a month by compiling information freely available on the web, it is refreshing to find a book that was written by someone who clearly not only knows what he's talking about extremely well, but also knows how to present the material in a coherent way.

I am not going to describe the content of the book, as you can easily get that from a TOC, but I will say this:

1. If you are an experienced developer that is new to Node.js and need to get up to speed quickly, read this book
2. If you are interested in asynchronous programming patterns and practices, read this book
3. If you are writing a JavaScript library that needs to work both in Node and in the browser, read this book
4. If you are interested in messaging and integration patterns, read this book
5. If you simply want to read an awesome technical book for a change, read this book

The bottom line -- if you are doing anything with Node, this book should be on your shelf/iPad/Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a bit better than expected 11 Feb. 2015
By Gevalia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have bought a number of Node.js books over the past year and this is without a doubt the best. It delves quite a bit deeper than most and I find myself referring to it often.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the most advanced, complete and useful node.js book I've read. 10 Nov. 2015
By David AB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Read this and you'll get serious and deep understanding of node.js, and specific ways to implement in your project.

Great discussion and solutions to avoid the sync vs async design and implementation issues in node.

This is the most advanced complete and useful node.js book I've read.

I enjoy it very much, and keep coming back to it to help me design and code.

Thank you Mario for all the times you didn't go out for beers with your friends so you could publish your book

Kudos to Packt and the reviewers. Great job, Great Book!

My background is very technical (EE/CS) but not experienced with javascript or node. I found it to be very well written and informative.
