Getting MEAN

Getting MEAN With Mongo, Express, Angular, and Node 2ed by Simon
Holmes, Manning 2019

With the advent of social web sites and apps there has been a big change in the design architecture of the sites. The volume of traffic is up, the response is expected to be near-immediate, and the cost of running the servers is expected to be lower. At the same time, the requirements are relaxed a bit for correct transactions: if one in a million posts to a social site go astray, that is not a big loss (compare that to the banks’ site’s requirements for correctness, c.f. ACID).

Enter the new technologies: the Mongo no-sql database, the Angular web page structure, and the Node/Express Javascript back-end framework.

This book is a great introduction to these new technologies, assuming that you know Javascript. The book is very readable, has lots of examples, and will get you developing excellent sites.

JavaScript Ninja

Secrets of the JavaScript Ninja, second edition, By Resig, John (- 2016)

John is the creator and lead developer of the jQuery UI library, so I am not surprised to find that this is an excellent book. It is not for the beginner programmer, but if you have a bit of JavaScript experience then you will find this book rewarding.
