JavaScript Node.js Basics (2014) Introduction to Node.js Hello World

Andrew is using Node's version 0.10.32 and currently it's 4.1.0 and Is it still actual tutorial?

Should I learn it or should I skip it? and loot tutorials on another website?

Don't worry, this course is still up-to-date. Although it seems like there are many versions between 0.10.32 and 4.1.0, that's not the case. Version 4.0.0 was release a few weeks ago, before that day version 0.12.xx was current. The reason for this huge jump are developer decisions and marketing reasons.

There may be some changes in the API for sure in 4.1.0, but you will hardly find them when following this course. Once you have an advanced understanding you might come across some issues or things that changed.

I followed this last week, it still works just fine. It's worth doing.

Hi guys I recommend for all new students to install a node manager to have different versions, it will help you to work better. Some projects only accept node 0.10.x, others 0.12.x so you should have them.
