Learning Node.js

Last night I finally got round to reading Manuel Kiessling's Node.js book "The Node Beginner Book: A comprehensive Node.js Tutorial". I found this book to be well written and helps new node.js developers to understand some of the aspects of programming this language. I specifically liked the section on Blocking and why not to do it that way.

The tutorial deals with file uploading and shows how to use a package that will do most of the work of parsing the POST data. If you are thinking about getting into node.js then this is definitely the book to start with.
