Node.js News for 2018

Node.js 10.x released - What's NEW?

(April 24, 2018)

After a year of development Node.js 10 has been released. It represents a huge step forward because of some high profile features and fixes. In October Node.js 10 will become the active Long Term Support branch, with 11.x becoming the new experimental branch. Let's take a look at what's been included.

Node.js Web Development, 4th edition, coming soon

(February 25, 2018)

With the rapid advances in the Node.js platform, Packt Publishing (the publishers of Node.js Web Development) and I both felt a new edition was required. The 3rd edition published in mid-2016 updated the text to support Promises and some advanced techniques like deployment using Docker. Since then, async functions have emerged on the scene, and with Node.js 10.x we'll have ES6 modules available. I just submitted the first draft of all 12 chapters to the editors, meaning that the book is about a month from being finished.
