Chapter 8. Websites and services

The previous chapters have presented many things you can do at the browser, but you can also do things at the server. When using Microsoft technologies, it’s typical to create a website by using Visual Studio .NET, which uses ASP.NET or model, view, controller (MVC) technologies that are programmed using Visual Basic .NET or C#. These technologies and languages are outside the scope of this book, but can you learn to create a form without creating a website to process the form?

This book is about HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript; this chapter covers web services, using JavaScript on the web server, which is possible by using Node.js, a platform built on the Google Chrome JavaScript runtime.
