A New Year

January 9, 2015

This last year has been an exciting time for Node. Mainstream adoption exploded, NPM blew past 100,000 modules, io.js launched to revamp Node’s development principles, and JavaScript continued on its path to world domination.

2014 was also a great year for The Node Way, which started 2014 as a Github repo and a few dinky blog posts labeled: “The Node.js Handbook.” By the end of the year, it had shed these humble beginnings and adopted a whole new look, a new website, and even a new name.

I want 2015 to be the most exciting year yet, for both Node.js & The Node Way. To kick it off I’ll be contributing new content to The Node Way weekly, starting with a brand new post today.

New Post: Designing Factories

“Previously, we introduced the Custom Type Module Pattern and how it can be used to create custom objects in your application. These custom types play a major role in JavaScript development, but creating them directly can quickly become a messy business. In this post I’ll introduce a new kind of module that makes working with custom types much easier: The Factory.”

Read it here and let me know what you think!

What Else?

I’ve got a ton more planned for the year, but I won’t spoil it all at once. Stay tuned for more updates, and keep an eye out for more Node.js best practices at thenodeway.io.
