Part 2. Web application development with Node


Node’s inclusion of built-in HTTP functionality makes Node a natural fit for web application development. This type of development is the most popular use for Node, and part 2 of this book focuses on it.

You’ll first learn how to use Node’s built-in HTTP functionality. You’ll then learn about how to use middleware to add more functionality, such as the ability to process data submitted in forms. Finally, you’ll learn how to use the popular Express web framework to speed up your development and how to deploy the applications you’ve created.
