Are you a developer interested in Node.js? Want to learn more about the technology, what the latest trends are, and find out some opinions on the best practices? Or perhaps you’re just starting out in the world of Node.js and are looking for some great resources – past and present – to find out more.
Either way, you’ve come to the right place.
Headphones at the ready? Let’s tune in…
First on the list is NodeUp. Hosted by Bradley Farias from GoDaddy, it features regular discussions with key players in the Node.js community. Often placing its focus on Node.js in the enterprise, a lot of the talks are great for getting the real inside-scoops from professionals at the heart of the development industry. With persistently great reviews – often described by fans as “THE podcast for the Node community” – NodeUp is essential listening for those wanting to keep up with the latest Node.js trends. Over 100 episodes are available to choose from, with more than an hour’s worth of pure Node.js discussion on each.
Next up is Herding Code. Host John Galloway welcomes guests to discuss various elements of coding, with Node.js getting regular billing. Other subjects, such as security and identity get plenty of air time, but all episodes have transcripts which allow for easy searching, so you can quickly go through and see what golden nuggets of Node.js are available for you to get your teeth into. One of the episodes , for instance, delves into a conversation about Hackernoon blogger Keith Horwood’s post ‘Using “Server-less” Architecture to Massively Parallelize DNA Sequence Alignment via StdLib and Node.js’, in which Horwood explains what DNA sequence alignment is, and “how you can use massive parallelization to go from an n-squared problem to operate with a time complexity of one.”
A little different in format than all the previous examples, it is structured in a course-like fashion and explains in detail how Node.js works under the hood. This can serve as a great introduction for developers / technical employees still hesitant about Node.js as it explains how it works under the hood and gives proper examples from both the technical and business perspectives.
Last, but by absolutely no means least, is Spotlight. Featuring a brand new series of podcasts, The Future of Node.js, all recorded at Node Interactive 2016, this is perhaps the ultimate Node.js podcast channel to subscribe to if you want to hear all the latest from the Node community. Check out “Node.js Backstory and Future”, where Mikeal Rogers talks about the history of Node, the io.js fork, and how The Node.js Foundation is helping to solidify the whole Node ecosystem. Amazing stuff.
