New Free Node.js E-Book for Beginners

first_imgThe Node Beginner Book by by Manuel Kiessling is a new Node.js e-book. It’s only about 40% done, and is actually more of a long tutorial than a book at this point.Kiessling’s work is aimed for developers “experienced with at least one object-oriented language like Ruby, Python, PHP or Java, only little experience with JavaScript, and completely new to node.js.”Kiessling writes:Here is the problem: Because JavaScript really lives two, maybe even three lives (the funny little DHMTL helper from the mid-90’s, the more serious frontend stuff like jQuery and the likes, and now server-side), it’s not that easy to find information that helps you to learn JavaScript the “right” way, in order to write node.js applications in a fashion that makes you feel you are not just using JavaScript, you are actually developing it.Because that’s the catch: you already are an experienced developer, you don’t want to learn a new technique by just hacking around and mis-using it; you want to be sure that you are approaching it from the right angle.There is, of course, excellent documentation out there. But documentation alone sometimes isn’t enough. What is needed is guidance.My goal is to provide a guide for you.See also: 6 Free E-Books and Tutorials for Learning and Mastering Node.js.If you’re a total beginner looking to get in on the JavaScript revolution, check out our list of 7 Free JavaScript E-Books and Tutorials.

Odisha group starts drive to retrieve discarded flags

first_imgA group of environmental activists of Odisha’s Berhampur are engaged in retrieving national flags made of paper and plastic that have been thrown all around the city after the Republic Day celebrations.They are members of Berhampur Sabuja Bahini. “We were hurt to see our national flag thrown in garbage dumps, drains and on the roadside,” said BSB president Sibaram Panigrahy. “Many people buy paper and polythene flags to express nationalistic fervour on Republic Day. However, after a few hours, they have no hesitation in disposing of these flags in a derogatory manner,” said BSB member P. Aravind Kumar.In its bid to create awareness among the people to respect the Tricolour, the BSB started its drive to salvage the discarded flags on January 27. During the drive, which continued on Monday, the activists told the residents that the national flag is like a picture of deities and it should not be disposed of unceremoniously. The Tricolours salvaged by this group are being cleaned up and stored. “We will reuse them in future events,” said BSB secretary M. Dilip Kumar. The members of the group said they were happy to see that the use of polythene flags had gone down drastically in Berhampur in comparison to the Independence Day celebrations last year.last_img read more
