The Modern JavaScript Collection

https://www.amazon.com/Modern-JavaScript-Collection-Aurelio-...
There's no doubt that the JavaScript ecosystem changes fast. Not only are new tools and frameworks introduced and developed at a rapid rate, the language itself has undergone big changes with the introduction of ES2015 (aka ES6) and further revisions. Understandably, many articles have been written complaining about how difficult it is to learn modern JavaScript development these days. We're aiming to minimize that confusion with this set of books on modern JavaScript.This collection contains:
  • Practical ES6 is a collection of articles introducing many of the powerful new JavaScript language features that were introduced in ECMAScript 2015, as well as features introduced in ECMAScript 2016 and 2017. It also takes a look at the features planned for ECMAScript 2018 in this rapidly evolving language.
  • JavaScript: Best Practice presents articles discussing modern JavaScript best practice, enabling you to write more powerful code that is clean, performant, maintainable, and reusable.
  • 6 JavaScript Projects presents six complete JavaScript projects; each taking advantage of modern JavaScript and its ecosystem. You'll learn to build several different apps, and along the way you'll pick up a ton of useful advice, tips, and techniques.
  • Modern JavaScript Tools & Skills contains a collection of articles outlining essential tools and skills that every modern JavaScript developer should know.
This book is for all front-end developers who wish to improve their JavaScript skills. You'll need to be familiar with HTML and CSS and have a reasonable level of understanding of JavaScript in order to follow the discussion.

Node.js: The Collection

https://www.amazon.com/Node-js-Collection-James-Hibbard-eboo...
While there have been quite a few attempts to get JavaScript working as a server-side language, Node.js (frequently just called Node) has been the first environment that's gained any traction. It's now used by companies such as Netflix, Uber and Paypal to power their web apps. Node allows for blazingly fast performance; thanks to its event loop model, common tasks like network connection and database I/O can be executed very quickly indeed.From a beginner's point of view, one of Node's obvious advantages is that it uses JavaScript, a ubiquitous language that many developers are comfortable with. If you can write JavaScript for the client-side, writing server-side applications with Node should not be too much of a stretch for you.This collection contains three books that will help get you up and running with Node. It contains:
  • Your First Week With Node.js, which will get started using Node, covering all of the basics.
  • 9 Practical Node.js Projects, which offers a selection of hand-on practical projects to develop your skills.
  • Node.js: Related Tools & Skills, which outlines essential tools and skills that all Node developers should know.
