Wow. They’ve rewritten everything. They switched from Less to Sass, from ES5 to ES6 and even dropped IE8 support! So much things that can make me happy! I just need to calm down and prepare for the final release while in the mean time looking around for sites that already use v4.

Your first app: node.js by Jim Schubert

I started reading the book “Your first app: node.js” by Jim Schubert.

It has a good amount of pages which I really like and teaches us how to create a whole application from installing Node.JS, using npm and adding modules, configure and use the server and client testing tools, building the client side, getting used with MongoDB, using JavaScript the clever way, improving our code on every chapter, to the very end when we will enjoy our completely finished app!

The software tools/libs we will get used to at the and are: Node.js, AngularJS, Express, MongoDB, Git, Bootstrap and more.
The book also has links to a priceless information connected to these tools and JavaScript.

I am at 1/3 of the book and already have learnt things about JavaScript that I would never find easily by myself.

Before that book I’ve started reading 2-3 other books but after some reading and waiting to get the knowledge of creating my own app I couldn’t do anything because I was like reading to random pieces of the documentation. Not that reading the documentation for a new language or framework is not necessary but it should be done after we have some knowledge about how to create an app with it(simple demos, examples) and then using the documentation to upgrade our skills and then write the app in an even better way.

On the book’s page you will find the “table of contents” and a free sample. The price is best too. Do not hesitate and check it now!
