Clientside going serverside with node.js

Tag: node.js Author: lzy371 Date: 2009-11-23

I`ve been looking for a serverside language for some time, and python got my attention somewhat. But as I already know and love javascript, I now want learn to code on the server with js and node.js.

Now, what books and what subjects do I need to learn to understand the serverside world better?

(let me know if Im to vague)

There is also the howtonode.org website with a lot of informative entries.
howtonode.org is really good. I've added it to the list.

The HTTP/1.1 spec is very informative.

Other Answer2

Learn python, it'll make you a better node.js programmer because it has good examples for all the networking features.

JavaScript is my favorite language, but I've spent some time in python and the standard library is really good for learning the basics of sockets, file descriptors, and networking.
