About the Book
Building an application using a web framework can soon lead to one big chunk of monolithic code. This happens not because of the web framework itself, but mostly because building distributed services can be a hard task. Fortunately, Node makes it easy to build networked services, allowing you to spread your application logic into a set of processes that communicate with each other.
This book shows you how to build and consume TCP-based services like streaming services, multiplexing streams, remote emitters, RPC streams and other types of network-based servers and clients.
