New Releases

And this week also saw the release of DZone's 199th Refcard, JavaScript Debugging:

Node.js

By Bert Belder

In-browser JavaScript? Sure. But on the server? Wow! But how? What about...stuff servers do? Like read from spinning plates? Http with a thousand clients at once? What an I/O nightmare! In a single thread? No way!

Node.js says "no problem." Just write JavaScript. Asynchronicity is free. The Node.js wizardry (=event loops + callbacks) handles the rest. And here's some more magic: We've worked with one of the Node core committers to update our Node.js Refcard to cover the latest version (v0.12) before it's even released. Sweet.

This Refcard covers:

  • Node architecture
  • Node Package Manager
  • What's new in v0.12
  • Node API guide... and more!
