Second edition

About the Book

There are many programming languages, some with a more general purpose, and some with a specific purpose, for example, the Web.This book describes how to use JavaScript, a general programming language, for Web development, and it is aimed at people with general programming knowledge and a basic understanding of JavaScript syntax or another ANSI C language, such as Java or PHP, who want to delve into the world of server-side Web development with Node.js. This book is also for those who have worked with client-side JavaScript, whether it's simple _vanilla_ JavaScript, libraries, and/or _frameworks_. It is also for those who want to leverage their existing knowledge of JavaScript to use on the server side.
