Every developer wants to build modular and scalable web applications. Modern versions of JavaScript have made this possible in Node.js, and Koa is a Node.js framework that makes it easy. This book is the ideal introduction for JavaScript developers who want to create scalable server side applications using Node.js and Koa.js.

The book shows you how Koa can be used to start projects from scratch, register custom and existing middleware, read requests, and send responses to users.
