About the author

Philip Jönsson

Philip Jönsson was born in Malmö City, Sweden 1988 where he still lives with his family. He gained an interest in technology at an early age. When he was eight years old the family got a home PC, which was the first step in his career.

Since Philip had a big interest in technology, choosing his education was easy. His IT studies started at The Nordic Technical Institute (NTI) where he studied the basics of computer technology and eventually focused on network. Later on he studied IT-security at Academedia Masters.

Philip’s first job in the IT business was at a home electronics company in Sweden. He worked at the IT department and was responsible for managing and troubleshooting the sales equipment in the stores and managing the IT infrastructure within the organisation. This is where Philip first encountered a BIG-IP controller.

Philip eventually started working in a Technical Assistance Center (TAC) department at an IT security company. Now Philip works as a consultant focused on F5 products in a department at one of the largest IT security company in Europe and handles major projects and solves problems for Sweden's most well-known companies.

Steven Iveson

Steven Iveson, the last of four children of the seventies, was born in London and was never too far from a shooting, bombing or riot. He’s now grateful to live in a small town in East Yorkshire in the north east of England with his wife Sam and their four children.

He first encountered a BIG-IP Controller in 2004 and has been working with TMOS and LTM since 2005. Steve’s iRules have been featured in four DevCentral articles and he’s made over 3000 posts on the DevCentral forums. He’s been awarded MVP status three times in 2014, 2016 and 2017.

Steve’s worked in the IT industry for over twenty years in a variety of roles, predominantly in data centre environments. In the last few years he’s widened his skill set to embrace DevOps, Linux, Docker, automation, orchestration and more.

He also blogs on subjects including Linux, programming, application delivery and careers at packetpushers; a community of bloggers that contribute technical, work life, and opinion articles from the customer’s perspective.

Node.js is the platform of choice for creating modern web services. This fast-paced book gets you up to speed on server-side programming with Node.js 8, as you develop real programs that are small, fast, low-profile, and useful. Take JavaScript beyond the browser, explore dynamic language features, and embrace evented programming.Harness the power of the event loop and non-blocking I/O to create highly parallel microservices and applications. This expanded and updated second edition showcases the latest ECMAScript features, current best practices, and modern development techniques.

JavaScript is the backbone of the modern web, powering nearly every web app's user interface. Node.js is JavaScript for the server. This greatly expanded second edition introduces new language features while dramatically increasing coverage of core topics. Each hands-on chapter offers progressively more challenging topics and techniques, broadening your skill set and enabling you to think in Node.js.

Write asynchronous, non-blocking code using Node.js's style and patterns. Cluster and load balance services with Node.js core features and third-party tools. Harness the power of databases such as Elasticsearch and Redis. Work with many protocols, create RESTful web services, TCP socket clients and servers, and more. Test your code's functionality with Mocha, and manage its life cycle with npm. Discover how Node.js pairs a server-side event loop with a JavaScript runtime to produce screaming fast, non-blocking concurrency. Through a series of practical programming domains, use the latest available ECMAScript features and harness key Node.js classes and popular modules. Create rich command-line tools and a web-based UI using modern web development techniques.

Join the smart and diverse community that's rapidly advancing the state of the art in JavaScript development.

What You Need:

Node.js 8.xOperating system with bash-like shellOMQ (pronounced "Zero-M-Q") library, version 3.2 or higherElasticsearch version 5.0 or higherjq version 1.5 or higherRedis version 3.2 or higher
“For an engineer determined to refine and secure Internet operation or to explore alternative solutions to persistent problems, the insights provided by this book will be invaluable.”

—Vint Cerf, Internet pioneer

TCP/IP Illustrated, Volume 1, Second Edition, is a detailed and visual guide to today’s TCP/IP protocol suite. Fully updated for the newest innovations, it demonstrates each protocol in action through realistic examples from modern Linux, Windows, and Mac OS environments. There’s no better way to discover why TCP/IP works as it does, how it reacts to common conditions, and how to apply it in your own applications and networks.

Building on the late W. Richard Stevens’ classic first edition, author Kevin R. Fall adds his cutting-edge experience as a leader in TCP/IP protocol research, updating the book to fully reflect the latest protocols and best practices. He first introduces TCP/IP’s core goals and architectural concepts, showing how they can robustly connect diverse networks and support multiple services running concurrently. Next, he carefully explains Internet addressing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Then, he walks through TCP/IP’s structure and function from the bottom up: from link layer protocols–such as Ethernet and Wi-Fi–through network, transport, and application layers.

Fall thoroughly introduces ARP, DHCP, NAT, firewalls, ICMPv4/ICMPv6, broadcasting, multicasting, UDP, DNS, and much more. He offers extensive coverage of reliable transport and TCP, including connection management, timeout, retransmission, interactive data flow, and congestion control. Finally, he introduces the basics of security and cryptography, and illuminates the crucial modern protocols for protecting security and privacy, including EAP, IPsec, TLS, DNSSEC, and DKIM. Whatever your TCP/IP experience, this book will help you gain a deeper, more intuitive understanding of the entire protocol suite so you can build better applications and run more reliable, efficient networks.
