First off, awesome author, he is a passionate programmer and good writer as well. Chapter 5 about QA is an amazing chapter, and could inspire any developer. But this book is a bit confused on what it whats to be. It often deviates into scholarly philosophy about web development theory, but isn't this supposed to be a technical book?
Don't get me wrong, the ideas in this book are great, but some of the theory seemed out of place, and just distracting from learning node. My biggest problem with this book as a person who is already a 'web developer', is it fails to demonstrate any real benefit of using Node in future applications. You learn how to build a website that you could have made in the language you already know be it Ruby, PHP, etc.
It lists some of the things node is good at in the first chapter of the book like Single-Page Applications, Expandable packages, using AngularJS. But doesn't mention any of these things again, I find no compelling reasons to migrate from PHP to Node after reading this book even though I've been told they exist.
There is also no "Bringing it all together" chapter at the end, that would go through all the things you just learned to properly build a node website from scratch.
While the book builds upon itself making the 'Meadowlark Travel Website", no objectives for the website are ever defined, so it doesn't feel like you are building anything real.

It also gets more and more messy, especially when adding experimental features to demonstrate code functionality. In later chapters many code examples also lack a verbatim explanation of the expected output, so you never know if you actually did it right or not. A few other nitpicks: Also mentioning using AngularJS for views would have been nice.
Chapter 7 is like it was written in a Vacuum to Chapter 3.
Many concepts that were already mentioned in Chapter 3 are reintroduced as completely new concepts Code examples can get a bit ugly and aren't commented consistently. It's sometimes hard to know what code in what file is being referenced. This could be easily fixed in the next edition by putting line numbers and file names on the top of code examples. I wish there were less 1 line if statements and ternary operators in some of the examples, as it makes it less clear what is happening.
For example, on page , it gives no indication where this connection to Mongo code is supposed to go, while one could figure it out, this is not a clear working example. Both exports and module.

This is problematic as future exercises rely on prior ones. In many cases this may simply be progress outpacing publishing: I've noted these problems on this book's O'Reilly errata page as descriptively as possible, as have many other readers. Other than the problems with the code examples, this book does offer a good conceptual framework for developing for the Web using these technologies. I hope future versions work out the code example issues.
From this book, I learned not just about how to write a basic Express app and make it nicely modular, but also learned from the enthusiastic author's wealth of knowledge and opinions about web development in general, including how to: No knowledge of NodeJS is necessary -- I had none and was able to follow along and make my own little app.
I would also estimate that a lot more space was used in this book covering web development in general than Node and Express in particular.
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. Angular , I had no real experience with Node. 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. I've got a solid idea of the patterns and practices I want to apply from a general development perspective, I mostly just need some nuts and bolts. This book delivers well enough. 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.
There are typos scattered throughout but they do not obstruct the lesson meaning--just a little annoying. I also found the "Meadowlark Travel Website" to be distracting. John Paul Mueller. Timothy L.
