    "It has a good amount of video tutorials/lectures teaching you Node.js. I liked this because I learn better when someone teaches me verbally, instead of reading books about it. Video quality is not the greatest but it's good enough to understand and learn what they are teaching you."

    "A friend recommended I use Node.js to develop my web server instead of PHP. I had a hard time delving into it though, Node is so versitile its hard to find tutorials that aren't tied to one specific use case. Code School's Realtime Web series was incredibly useful! I feel like I understand the basics of how to utilize the environment now to the point where I can fill in the remaining gaps as I go."
