Node for Front-End Developers
If you know how to use JavaScript in the browser, you already have the skills you need to put JavaScript to work on back-end servers with Node. This hands-on book shows you how to use this popular JavaScript platform to create simple server applications, communicate with the client, build dynamic pages, work with data, and tackle other tasks.

Although Node has a complete library of developer-contributed modules to automate server-side development, this book will show you how to program with Node on your own, so you truly understand the platform. Discover firsthand how well Node works as a web server, and how easy it is to learn and use. more »
Node: Up and Running
This book introduces you to Node, the new web development framework written in JavaScript. You'll learn hands-on how Node makes life easier for experienced JavaScript developers: not only can you work on the front end and back end in the same language, you'll also have more flexibility in choosing how to divide application logic between client and server.

Written by a core contributor to the framework, Node: Up and Running shows you how Node scales up to support large numbers of simultaneous connections across multiple servers, and scales down to let you create quick one-off applications with minimal infrastructure. Built on the V8 JavaScript engine that runs Google Chrome, Node is already winning the hearts and minds of many companies, including Google and Yahoo! This book shows you why. more »
Node.js for PHP Developers
If you're an experienced PHP developer, you already have a head start on learning how to write Node.js code. In this book, author Daniel Howard demonstrates the remarkable similarities between the two languages, and shows you how to port your entire PHP web application to Node.js. By comparing specific PHP features with their Node counterparts, you'll also discover how to refactor and improve existing PHP 4 or PHP 5 source code.

At the end, you'll have two fully functional codebases to provide to your users. You can update both of them simultaneously, using this book as a reference to important aspects of PHP and Node.js. more »
Distributed Network Data
Build your own distributed sensor network to collect, analyze, and visualize real-time data about our human environment - including noise level, temperature, and people flow. With this hands-on book, you'll learn how to turn your project idea into working hardware, using the easy-to-learn Arduino microcontroller and off-the-shelf sensors.

Authors Alasdair Allan and Kipp Bradford walk you through the entire process, from prototyping a simple sensor node to performing real-time analysis on data captured by a deployed multi-sensor network. more »
Node Cookbook
A hands on approach to learning Node to equip and guide you in the art of asynchronous server side JavaScript.

Packed with practical recipes taking you from the basics to extending Node with your own modules. Create your own web server to see Node's features in action. Work with JSON, XML, web sockets, and make the most of asynchronous programming. more »
Quantum Walks and Search Algorithms
This book addresses an interesting area of quantum computation called quantum walks, which play an important role in building quantum algorithms, in particular search algorithms. Quantum walks are the quantum analogue of classical random walks.

It is known that quantum computers have great power for searching unsorted databases. This power extends to many kinds of searches, particularly to the problem of finding a specific location in a spatial layout, which can be modeled by a graph. The goal is to find a specific node knowing that the particle uses the edges to jump from one node to the next. more »
Node Cookbook, 2nd Edition
Node Cookbook Second Edition shows you how to transfer your JavaScript skills to server-side programming. It will talk you through the various server-side scenarios, often saving you time and effort by demonstrating best practices and showing you how to avoid security faux pas.

Beginning with making your own web server, the recipes are designed to allow smooth progression through Node in order to help you design full web applications, command-line applications, and Node modules.

There's also extensive coverage on using popular frameworks such as Express 4 and Socket.IO, writing your own Node modules and different ways to take your apps live. more »
Node.js the Right Way
Get to the forefront of server-side JavaScript programming by writing compact, robust, fast, networked Node applications that scale. Ready to take JavaScript beyond the browser, explore dynamic languages features and embrace evented programming? Explore the fun, growing repository of Node modules provided by npm. Work with multiple protocols, load-balanced RESTful web services, express, 0MQ, Redis, CouchDB, and more. Develop production-grade Node applications fast.

JavaScript is the backbone of the modern web, powering nearly every web app's user interface. Node.js is JavaScript for the server. This book shows you how to develop small, fast, low-profile, useful, networked applications. You'll write asynchronous, non-blocking code using Node's style and patterns. You'll cluster and load balance your services with Node core features and third-party tools. You'll work with many protocols, creating RESTful web services, TCP socket clients and servers, and more. more »
HBase Design Patterns
With the increasing use of NoSQL in general and HBase in particular, knowing how to build practical applications depends on the application of design patterns. These patterns, distilled from extensive practical experience of multiple demanding projects, guarantee the correctness and scalability of the HBase application. They are also generally applicable to most NoSQL databases.

Starting with the basics, this book will show you how to install HBase in different node settings. You will then be introduced to key generation and management and the storage of large files in HBase. Moving on, this book will delve into the principles of using time-based data in HBase, and show you some cases on denormalization of data while working with HBase. Finally, you will learn how to translate the familiar SQL design practices into the NoSQL world. With this concise guide, you will get a better idea of typical storage patterns, application design templates, HBase explorer in multiple scenarios with minimum effort, and reading data from multiple region servers. more »
