[Udemy] Web Application Development using Redis, Express, and Socket


Staff member
Looking to build scalable and real-time applications in one of the simplest ways possible? You’ve come just to the right place!

This is one of Packt’s Video Learning Paths which is a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.

In this Learning Path, we look at implementing real-time applications on websites using SocketIO, Express, and Redis.

SocketIO has been used in creating many real-time chat and blog applications because of its powerful real-time engine. Yes, Socket. IO features one of the fastest and most reliable real-time engines. This makes it almost perfect for real-time analytics, instant messaging, and two-way communication between the browser and web application. Redis opens doors by making data quick and easy to fetch. Lastly, Express helps by making full-featured web applications easy. A powerful combination of these three will give you awe-inspiring application experiences and you’ll be able to create fast, scalable, and dynamic real-time apps in no time!

Essentially, this Learning Path is a practical guide on integrating Redis and NodeJS and making a site realtime using Node.js and SocketIO.

By the end of the Learning Path, you will be a competent SocketIO developer and will be able to create fast, scalable, and dynamic real-time apps.

About the authors:

This Learning Path, contains the best works of Joshua Johanan and Tyson Cadenhead who are experienced at creating applications.

Joshua Johanan is currently a web developer with over 7 years of experience writing sites and applications in many different languages. These languages include PHP, Python, JavaScript, and C#. Using many languages also means using many frameworks, including Zend Framework, Django, and .Net MVC. He is the author of two books, Building Scalable Apps with Redis and NodeJS and Web Developer’s Reference Guide.

Tyson Cadenhead works as a senior JavaScript engineer at Aloompa in Nashville, Tennessee. He has dedicated his professional career to building large-scale applications in JavaScript and Node. Tyson addresses audiences at various conferences and programming meetups on how to build real-time web applications with SocketIO or MeteorJS.
