Review: „Jump Start Node.js” By Don Nguyen, SitePoint
Node.js for novices
In Chapter 6, author writes about Backbone and use it in Nockmarket. I don’t see purpose of introducing Backbone in book with Node.js in the title. I’m much more interested in Node.js ecosystem and tools. Chapter 7 covers some production issues. You can skip Heroku section and find much comprehensive documentation on Heroku pages.
To sum up, this book can be good enough for novices but if you’re experienced web developer probably you’ll dive into documentation or other resources.
