There are lots of tutorials that will teach you how to throw together
some Node.js code. This tutorial isn’t that. Instead it is designed to
help you write really robust Node.js code. We’ll assume you already
know how to write a basic Node app, and instead we’ll focus on error
handling, clustering and scale.
In this tutorial we are going to build a clustered chat server that
supports Socket.io. You’ll learn how to build a real-time app that
scales, doesn’t fall over and is easy to extend and add features to.
You should have Node.js and Redis installed before the tutorial.
