              Node.js is a fast-growing platform for building server applications using JavaScript. Now that it is being more widely used in production settings, Node applications will start to be specifically targeted for security vulnerabilities. Protecting your users will require an underst...anding of attack vectors unique to Node, as well as shared with other web applications. To secure Node.js applications, we'll start by helping you delve into the building blocks that make up typical Node applications. By understanding all the layers that you are building on top of, you can write code defensively and securely. In doing so, you will be able to protect your user's data and your infrastructure, while still using the rock-star technology behind Node.js. Teaching you how to secure your Node applications by learning about each of the layers you will be building on top of; starting with JavaScript itself, then the Node platform, and finally the npm module ecosystem. By starting with JavaScript, you will learn what to avoid and what to embrace. Next, we will explain the Node platform, including its unique architecture and core modules, so you know how things work under the hood. Finally, we will introduce the rich ecosystem of npm modules, including modules to help you solve the common security problems you might face. Through our handy tutorials, you will be able to write secure Node.js applications, ones that will remain online under pressure and be able to weather the most common attacks that face web applications today.

              Spark is a framework for writing fast, distributed programs. Spark solves similar problems as Hadoop MapReduce does but with a fast in-memory approach and a clean functional style API. With its ability to integrate with Hadoop and inbuilt tools for interactive query analysis (Sha...rk), large-scale graph processing and analysis (Bagel), and real-time analysis (Spark Streaming), it can be interactively used to quickly process and query big data sets. Fast Data Processing with Spark covers how to write distributed map reduce style programs with Spark. The book will guide you through every step required to write effective distributed programs from setting up your cluster and interactively exploring the API, to deploying your job to the cluster, and tuning it for your purposes. Fast Data Processing with Spark covers everything from setting up your Spark cluster in a variety of situations (stand-alone, EC2, and so on), to how to use the interactive shell to write distributed code interactively. From there, we move on to cover how to write and deploy distributed jobs in Java, Scala, and Python. We then examine how to use the interactive shell to quickly prototype distributed programs and explore the Spark API. We also look at how to use Hive with Spark to use a SQL-like query syntax with Shark, as well as manipulating resilient distributed datasets (RDDs).
