Node.js has always been easy to grasp, but difficult to master. Design patterns and best practices exist for avoiding common pitfalls and building more stable applications, but these guiding principles have never been well documented. It has always been up to you, the individual developer, to uncover them on your own through painful trial and error.
The Node Way is a new project to discover and document the entire Node.js philosophy. It contains a collection of posts on understanding the platform fundamentals and leveraging that understanding to build great things.
This talk – presented at the awesome NodeConf Oakland 2014 – introduces the project, explains the motivation behind it, and gives an all-too-brief overview of some key philosophy takeaways. If you want to learn more, head over to thenodeway.io and learn the answer to the question, “What is The Node Way?”.
