Node.js Crash Course
See the original posting on DZone Python
Ive been doing Node full-time at work and noticed a lot of other people lacking a centralized resource to get up and running quickly. There are a lot of wonderful resources out there for Node that are only a Google search away, but, hopefully, this document should get you coding quickly and help you to communicate effectively with other Node developers.
Ive tried to write this list in order of the most important things you need to know. Feel free to skip around.
