Here’s this week’s recap of the Node.js related blogs we posted last week…
Managing async flow and avoiding callback hell can be accomplished if you develop in a disciplined manner. However, handling errors in async flow in a clean and easy to follow manner can prove very challenging even for experienced Node developers. Node core commiter Bert Belder attempts to solve this issue with a new npm module called Zones.
In last week’s performance tip, we discussed in detail how to scale Node.js applications using proxies and clustering. In this week’s post we’ll look at the basics of how an event loop works and how it can cause performance issues when it goes into blocking mode. We will also discuss some tools to triage blocked event loops.
