Web Development with MongoDB and Node - Third Edition

Overview of this book

Node.js builds fast, scalable network applications while MongoDB is the perfect fit as a high-performance, open source NoSQL database solution. The combination of these two technologies offers high performance and scalability and helps in building fast, scalable network applications. Together they provide the power for manage any form of data as well as speed of delivery. This book will help you to get these two technologies working together to build web applications quickly and easily, with effortless deployment to the cloud. You will also learn about angular 4, which consumes pure JSON APOIs from a hapi server. The book begins by setting up your development environment, running you through the steps necessary to get the main application server up-and-running. Then you will see how to use Node.js to connect to a MongoDB database and perform data manipulations. From here on, the book will take you through integration with third-party tools to interact with web apps. You will see how to use controllers and view models to generate reusable code that will reduce development time. Toward the end, the book supplies tests to properly execute your code and take your skills to the next level with the most popular frameworks for developing web applications. By the end of the book, you will have a running web application developed with MongoDB, Node.js, and some of the most powerful and popular frameworks.

The Node API online documentation is going to be your best bet for fully understanding everything that's available within the Node core set of modules. The Node API docs can be found at http://nodejs.org/api.

Additionally, there is a great website that teaches Node using actual programming problems that you must solve. The emphasis with these exercises is to understand the nuts and bolts of how Node works and get down into the fundamentals of working with streams, asynchronous I/O, promises, and more. Node school can be found at http://nodeschool.io.

Finally, the creators of MongoDB offer an amazing 7-8 week online...
