Granted, a novice programmer might not appreciate this. Not having endured in the trenches with a large code base or with having to maintain it. But experienced developers understand the significance.
The text goes on to show how Node can be combined with another popular package, Angular.js. Where the example also demonstrates the use of a backend MySQL database. Important because many applications are more than just a user interface. Persistence to a database is typically needed.
Another expansion in functionality is the use of WebSockets. Turns on a 2 way interaction between a browser and the web server. This can greatly expand the user's appreciation of what a browser can do. While Backbone.js is explained in its own chapter, for improved handling of jQuery. All of these are useful packages that you are likely to need.
The title of the book says that it contains blueprints, so if nothing else, the book provides a wealth of practical, usable web applications that not only show off the capabilities of node.js, but show you how relatively easy it is to just drum up some really great-looking web apps that will look great in your portfolio.
I am no Node.js expert, but I use it and have taken some classes in it, too. "Node.js Blueprints" covers a lot of ground that interests me, including Express, AngularJS, Backbone.js, and using Node.js with Ember.js. I have been wanting to try out Grunt and Gulp, and this book shows me how. I have almost no experience with Jasmine, but this book shows me how to put it to work. I also like the fact that I get to use Node.js along with MongoDB and MySQL. And I am looking forward to learning more about developing desktop applications with Node.js.
So, all in all, this book is proving very helpful for me as I try to become more adept at using Node.js and using some of the many other software packages that can work with it.
