Alex Banks shows how to install Node.js on a Mac or PC and work with the Node.js core: the global object, event loop, http module, and file system. Then he covers reading and writing data, streaming data, making http requests, and working with the node package manager (npm). In the final chapters, he shows how to start sessions on web servers, communicate with web servers and clients with WebSockets, use the Express framework to develop applications, and test and debug Node.js code.
