Editorial Reviews


"Node.js 8 the Right Way is an excellent guide for building robust Node.js applications and making use of the extensive Node.js ecosystem. Using realistic applications from several different domains, it gives a highly useful and thorough description of the process of building, testing, and deploying real-world Node.js programs."
Dan Scales
    Principal Engineer, Google Inc.

"Without the original Node.js the Right Way, I wouldn't be where I am today. This book leapfrogged me from being a casual Node.js developer to loving the event loop and knowing how to build effective distributed systems in Node.js. It led me to writing clean, idiomatic, and highly understandable JavaScript--both in Node.js and in the browser. This update will do the same for readers."
Kyle Kelley
    Senior Software Engineer, Netflix

"Jim's update to his engaging, wide-ranging deep dive into how to solve actual problems using Node.js taught even this old dog some new tricks. Hats off to Jim for clearly demonstrating how to get the most out of Node.js."
Mark Trostler
    Software Engineer, Google Inc.

"Jim Wilson shows the correct way, the way that will definitely make you a better Node.js developer, giving you many techniques, insights, and--most of all--some really cool stuff. Node.js 8 the Right Way provides loads of good practices and reveals some of the lower-level interactions of Node with the system. In a Node.js shop, this book is a must for seniors' reference and a must for new hires."
Peter Perlepes
    Software Engineer, Growth
