NodeCasts: Free Node.js Screencasts
Episode 5: Thinking Asynchronously

Asynchronous programming can be difficult if you're not used to it; we'll talk about some common patterns and pitfalls for working in an asynchronous environment. We'll also introduce a flow control library to handle multiple nested asynchronous operations.

Brandon, these are really great -- please keep these up. I love RailsCasts -- and I really think this is filling a void in Node-land.

I am sure that these take a lot of work, I appreciate the time you are dedicating to this.

I am sure you have a long list of things you want to cover: but to add to the list:

- express
- hosting / deployment (best way to provision a ec2 server, or should we use heroku or the like)
- templating (mustache, jade, etc ...)

when will the new video?
Mark Eliasen, 2 years ago:
Thank you soo much for the vids so far. I always found it hard to learn Node as most resources talked about node as if you already had a fundamental knowledge of how it worked.

At some later date I would also love to see some videos on express and, but please do keep the fundamental videos coming, they are brilliant!

Please tell me this is not dead. This is clearly the best node tutorial series I've seen out there.
Robert Dober, 2 years ago:
Agree with Prem all casts are very concise, very informative, just very excellent :)

I hope you have not abandoned the project.

Please continue posting more videos.

I agree with the other folks these video cast are outstanding. The most concise node.js content I have seen to date.
