Reactive Programming with Node.js
Learn how to institute Reactive Programming (RP) for your back-end development with Node.js. Up to now, RP has most often been used in front-end development, but with its cutting-edge approach you can also transform your back-end programming.
Reactive Programming with Node.js will show you the paradigms of RP, why you should use it, and the variations available to you. You will learn how to use the main libraries necessary to provide an enhanced development experience in Node.js, including RxJS, Bacon.js, Kefir.js, and Highland.js. You will also create a custom library that provides a variety of key features, and learn how to scale up a system developed using RP in Node.js.
Mastering Python High Performance
Simply knowing how to code is not enough; on mission-critical pieces of code, every bit of memory and every CPU cycle counts, and knowing how to squish every bit of processing power out of your code is a crucial and sought-after skill. Nowadays, Python is used for many scientific projects, and sometimes the calculations done in those projects require some serious fine-tuning. Profilers are tools designed to help you measure the performance of your code and help you during the optimization process, so knowing how to use them and read their output is very handy.
This book starts from the basics and progressively moves on to more advanced topics. You’ll learn everything from profiling all the way up to writing a real-life application and applying a full set of tools designed to improve it in different ways. In the middle, you’ll stop to learn about the major profilers used in Python and about some graphic tools to help you make sense of their output.
You’ll then move from generic optimization techniques onto Python-specific ones, going over the main constructs of the language that will help you improve your speed without much of a change. Finally, the book covers some number-crunching-specific libraries and how to use them properly to get the best speed out of them.
After reading this book, you will know how to take any Python code, profile it, find out where the bottlenecks are, and apply different techniques to remove them.
Pro REST API Development with Node.js (2nd ed)
Pro REST API Development with Node.js is your guide to managing and understanding the full capabilities of successful REST development. API design is a hot topic in the programming world, but not many resources exist for developers to really understand how they can leverage the advantages.
This book will provide a brief background on REST and the tools that come with it. Understand how there is more to REST than just JSON and URLs. You will then cover and compare the maintained modules currently available in the npm community. Finally you will code an example API from start to finish, using a subset of the tools .

Scaling your Noide.js apps
Take your Node.js application into production-ready status, capable of scaling up to whatever your needs might be.
You'll discover that architecting for successful, popular sites is an essential tool of any professional Node.js developer, and learning to scale your own applications is a great place to start.
Using this book you will learn when to scale, what factors should trigger scaling, and what architectural techniques are best suited for scaling.
You will also explore common pitfalls that arise when scaling a Node.js application and solutions to correct them.
Including analyses of success cases at the largest-scale companies, such as Netflix and Paypal, this book will get you started with scaling in no time at all.
