  • Understand data processing with transform streams and combine them into different layouts
  • Use tricks to solve concerns and get higher scalability and modularity in your apps
  • Untangle modules by coherently organizing and connecting them
  • Reuse popular techniques to solve common design and coding issues
  • Leverage React and its ecosystem in universal applications


Build highly scalable, single-language applications that share code between the server and client

Through Professional Node.js, you will be presented with various sets of patterns that you can use to efficiently solve your everyday development and design problems. You will understand what different traditional design patterns look like in Node.js, and how to design modules that focus on performing a single task at a time. You will gain an understanding of the basic building blocks and principles of writing large and well-organized Node.js applications. You will be able to apply these principles to problems that don't fall within the scope of existing patterns.

Luciano Mammino is a software engineer who was born in 1987, the same year that Nintendo released Super Mario Bros in Europe, which happens to be his favorite video game. He started coding at the age of 12 using his father's old Intel 386, with only the DOS operating system and the QBasic Interpreter. After studying for a master's degree in computer science, he developed his programming skills, mostly as a web developer, working mainly as a freelancer for companies and start-ups all over Italy. After a start-up parenthesis of 3 years as CTO and cofounder of Sbaam in Italy and in Ireland, he decided to relocate to Dublin to work as a senior PHP engineer at Smartbox. He loves developing open source libraries and working with frameworks such as Symfony and Express. He is convinced that JavaScript’s success is still at the very beginning and that it will have a huge impact on most web- and mobile-related technologies in the future. For this reason, he spends most of his free time improving his knowledge of JavaScript and playing with Node.js.
