Part 1. Node fundamentals

Node has an extremely small standard library intended to provide the lowest-level API for module developers to build on. Even though it’s relatively easy to find third-party modules, many tasks can be accomplished without them. In the chapters to follow, we’ll take a deep dive into a number of core modules and explore how to put them to practical use.

By strengthening your understanding of these modules, you’ll in turn become a more well-rounded Node programmer. You’ll also be able to dissect third-party modules with more confidence and understanding.
