True to the Smashing Magazine's promise, Smashing Node.js smashes readers with the information they need to understand what Node.js is and how they can put it to work developing more efficient and web apps. The book begins by addressing the biggest selling point of the technology: why you no longer need to learn more than one web development language, and how JavaScript can now solve all your web dev problems. Implicitly, this means employers and entrepreneurs no longer require expertise in several distinct languages and frameworks to create viable and successful web products. Smashing Node.js is example-heavy, explaining the practical advantages of Node.js that come from its specific design choices. Examples used in the book focus on apps that stand out because of their brevity, or benchmarks that show why Node.js is faster than most technologies readers are into already. The book also demonstrate how real-time technologies such as Socket.IO and HTML5 WebSockets can be implemented effortlessly in apps-another trait unique to Node.js. The book also uses an innovative online presentation, with sample chapters available online to encourage real-time online interaction among readers. The source code for the online sample chapters will be examined in detail within the book in chapters that aren't available to readers for free.
