Is there any good resources to get started with Node.JS? Any good tutorial, blog or books?

Of course, I have visited http://nodejs.org/, but I didn't think the documentation they have is a good starting point.

Thanks

Howtonode is a good site to follow.Also since nodejs no longer supports promises as of 1.3 release Do is also worth watching

Use the source, Luke.

No but seriously I found that building Node from source, running the tests, and looking at the benchmarks did get me on the right track. From there, the .js files in the lib directory are a good place to look, especially the file http.js.

A small plug

Check out http://www.nodeblogs.com you can find the code at github under. Personally I would recommend messing around with express and also check out the github node wiki that contains lots of links to tutorials and modules.

Heroku is a good hosting platform for NodeJS. Heroku exp support. It's experimental for now but do take a look at it. Write a slick app and deploy on it and play for sometime. This will allow you to learn the inside of configuring NodeJS as well. Node Knockout torunament website NodeKnockout is hosted on github which is in NodeJS. Hope this helps.

This tutorial from howtonode.org on writing a blog using node.js is what got me started. As node.js is changing so rapidly half (that, or there abouts) of the code samples are out of date. Having to hack around between this and the docs to bring it up to date gave me a basic working knowledge fairly quickly.
