Express.js in Action, Paperback / softback Book


DESCRIPTION Node.js is white hot, powering the server side of major web apps from Walmart, PayPal, and Netflix.

While super-powerful, raw Node can be complex and awkward.

Express.js is a web application framework for Node that organizes server-side JavaScript into testable, maintainable modules.

It provides a powerful set of features to efficiently manage routes, requests, and views, along with beautiful boilerplate for web applications.

Lightweight, fast, and unobtrusive, Express helps harness Node's raw power so developers can concentrate on what the application does instead of managing the nit-picky technical details. Express.js in Action is a carefully designed tutorial that teaches how to build web applications using Node and Express.
