Provides good information, bad code examples
18 people found this helpful.
I’ve been working along with the examples in this book and, while the book is informative, many of the examples don’t work. This is problematic as future exercises rely on prior ones. In many cases this may simply be progress outpacing publishing: many of the examples use older or now obsolete versions of libraries or tools, not to be unexpected with relatively new technology. I’ve noted these problems on this book’s O’Reilly errata page as descriptively as possible, as have many other readers.

Very Good Introduction to Node/Express
3 people found this helpful.
While there are many web tutorials for Node and Express many seem to have been written by people who had figured out something that worked for them after trial and error. Brown’s approach is more systematic and I prefer some of the choices he made like Handlebars rather than the more complex templating schemes. i was particularly impressed by the chapter on best practices that is placed very early in the book. I am looking at Node for a new product and would like to get my team started off right.
Good Coverage of Multi-Page Websites Using Node-Related Tools
2 people found this helpful.
The book offers a lot of concept coverage and it’s code implementations are mostly concerned with delivering dynamic content via multi-page websites. Since it is more high-level, topics are usually thoroughly introduced, benefits are well explained, and then there are brief code implementations and conclusions.
No mention of WebSockets?
One person found this helpful.
This book doesn’t include a chapter on WebSockets. In fact, WebSocket doesn’t even appear in the index. For the money I would stick to a copy of Front-End Web Development: The Big Nerd Ranch Guide and just read the chapters on Node (but that would miss Express).
Good kick start for an experienced dev with little node background
Other than the tangential involvement with Node you get using npm as a task runner and with many of the tutorials and CLIs for more popular front end frameworks (e.g. Angular) , I had no real experience with Node. I’ve got a JS background, but not a MEAN stack background. I’ve been a mostly .NET dev with a fair amount of way-back-when experience in Java and php. This book is a fairly good intro for a person like me.
Clear and Effective
3 people found this helpful.
I chose this book because I needed to start learning about node and node web development. I looked on Amazon for the book with the highest ratings AND most reviews. I found this book to be very clear and pragmatic. The examples and tips are good enough that I started using similar tips in Python web app that I am developing. This book was well worth the money.
Excellent book that’ll get you going on web development
I am a beginner, so this is a review from a beginner’s perspective. In a couple of hours of reading, this book gave an amazing amount of knowledge to me – and I didn’t even get to write code yet! It’s a good book, and its not only about Node and Express – it goes through the whole complication of creating and running a Node-based website right down to SSL, HTTPS, user authentication, integrating with Facebook & Google API’s. It may not be the book for advanced users, but for a beginner its clear, concise, practical and just an excellent place to start learning web development.
