Develop rich, interactive, and real-world web applications using knockout.jsAbout This BookMaster the full range of features provided by knockout.js such as declarative binding, automatic refresh, dependency tracking, and templating using this project based guideTackle real-world problems such as page navigation, forms, composite UI components, maps integration, server interaction for CRUD operations, and application securityDiscover the power of knockout.js as you build applications with complexity ranging from beginner to advancedExtend and customize knockout.js to harness its full potentialIntegrate with third party libraries and APIs to build fully featured applicationsWho This Book Is For

This book is intended for designers and developers who want to learn how to use Knockout to develop rich, interactive, and modular web applications. The book assumes no prior knowledge of the Knockout library but basic familiarity with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript would be helpful.

What You Will LearnExplore the basic concept behind the Model-View-View Model (MVVM) design pattern and how it is implemented by knockout.jsDevelop a modular application skeleton based on the Module Pattern that can be used as a template for your projectsUse knockout.js with other libraries and APIs, such as JQuery, Bootstrap, and the Google Maps API, to give your users a richer experienceCreate real-world dynamic web forms to capture user information and learn how knockout.js makes it easier to capture, validate, and submit form dataDevelop and use dynamic UI components such as grids, tabs, master details view, and wizardsExtend knockout.js to add custom extenders, binding handlers, subscribers, and observablesSecure your single page application using token-based authenticationIn Detail

KnockoutJS By Example is a project-based guide that introduces the key features and concepts of knockout.js. It helps you create an application skeleton and a Hello World application. You will develop a To-Do list application that aims to show the basic features of knockout.js in action, such as data binding and observables, following which you will develop a dynamic online customer registration form that captures and validates customer information. This book will further walk you through developing a customer banking portal, which demonstrates the use of knockout.js with components such as navigation bars, tabs, carousels, master details view, panels, forms, and wizards. You will also discover how to use token-based authentication and authorization to secure the customer banking portal, and move on to creating an editable products grid with CRUD operations. Finally, you will explore how to use the Google Maps API with knockout.js.

KnockoutJS By Example will not only leave you with a basic understanding of knockout.js fundamentals but also take you through some of the advanced features. It will help you get a web application up and ready instantly.

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.

Learn about cryptography and cryptocurrencies, so you can build highly secure, decentralized applications and conduct trusted in-app transactions.Key FeaturesGet to grips with the underlying technical principles and implementations of blockchainBuild powerful applications using Ethereum to secure transactions and create smart contractsExplore cryptography, mine cryptocurrencies, and solve scalability issues with this comprehensive guideBook Description

A blockchain is a distributed ledger that is replicated across multiple nodes and enables immutable, transparent and cryptographically secure record-keeping of transactions. The blockchain technology is the backbone of cryptocurrencies, and it has applications in finance, government, media and almost all other industries. Mastering Blockchain, Second Edition has been thoroughly updated and revised to provide a detailed description of this leading technology and its implementation in the real world.

This book begins with the technical foundations of blockchain technology, teaching you the fundamentals of distributed systems, cryptography and how it keeps data secure. You will learn about the mechanisms behind cryptocurrencies and how to develop applications using Ethereum, a decentralized virtual machine. You will also explore different other blockchain solutions and get an introduction to business blockchain frameworks under Hyperledger, a collaborative effort for the advancement of blockchain technologies hosted by the Linux Foundation. You will also be shown how to implement blockchain solutions beyond currencies, Internet of Things with blockchain, blockchain scalability, and the future scope of this fascinating and powerful technology.

What you will learnMaster the theoretical and technical foundations of the blockchain technologyUnderstand the concept of decentralization, its impact, and its relationship with blockchain technologyMaster how cryptography is used to secure data - with practical examplesGrasp the inner workings of blockchain and the mechanisms behind bitcoin and alternative cryptocurrenciesUnderstand the theoretical foundations of smart contractsLearn how Ethereum blockchain works and how to develop decentralized applications using Solidity and relevant development frameworksIdentify and examine applications of the blockchain technology - beyond currenciesInvestigate alternative blockchain solutions including Hyperledger, Corda, and many moreExplore research topics and the future scope of blockchain technologyWho this book is for

This book will appeal to those who wish to build fast, highly secure, transactional applications. It targets people who are familiar with the concept of blockchain and are comfortable with a programming language.
