Building Node Applications with MongoDB and Backbone: Rapid Prototyping and Scalable Deployment

The enthusiasm behind Node doesn’t just reflect the promise of server-side JavaScript. Developers also have the potential to create elegant applications that are much easier to maintain. In the second edition of this hands-on book, experienced software architect Mike Wilson builds out self-contained examples with easy-to-follow code samples. You’ll learn how to develop complete applications that combine the strengths of Node, the MongoDB scalable storage solution, and the Backbone toolkit for clean application design in the browser.Along with security and good design practices, this book teaches you functional programming concepts in Backbone, and demonstrates why they’re important for the front end. JavaScript programmers will learn the power of the language in a variety of contexts.
