Advanced Node.js

by Samer Buna

This course will teach you the core Node.js concepts and API modules from simple utility modules all the way to streams and clusters.

What you'll learn

Hello, and welcome to Advanced Node.js, part of the Node.js Learning Path here at Pluralsight. My name is Samer Buna, and I’m looking forward to helping you understand how the Node runtime work and learn about all the powerful built-in features that you can use in every Node process.

Along the way, you’re going to be learning about things like modules management, V8, concurrency and event loop, streams, child processes, and clusters. You’ll also be using npm and Node's event-driven modules for networking and HTTP web servers. You’ll want to make sure you’re already up to speed on modern JavaScript and the basics of Node.js.

So if you’re ready to get started, Advanced Node.js is waiting for you. Thanks again for visiting me here at Pluralsight!
