About the Book
Given the ease of building things with Node, it can be easy to skip over the most fundamental component of any Node application - the Event Loop and how it handles asynchronous I/O. This is what makes Node special. Everything you do will be executed within the event loop. Having a better understanding of how this works will make you a better developer and improve your Node skills.
This book is for not only the beginning developer, but also the experienced Node developers that would like to take a closer look at the Event Loop and explore modern techniques for handling asynchronous I/O. We'll walk through Node basics to bring everyone up to speed on how to write Node code, and then dive right into the Event Loop and explore different patterns for handling I/O while not blocking the rest of the program. There will be a lot of hands-on coding to better illustrate the topic and cement your understanding as you gain practical skills along the way.
