This video is a step-by-step instruction of installing Node.JS version 6 on Ubuntu or Linux Mint. Hint: As tempting as it might be, don’t install it through the package manager. I’ll explain why in the video below.

Having recently switched from Windows to Linux, I thought it best to showcase the top Linux dev tools that I use day-to-day in my dev environment. Here’s a video demonstration of my set-up. If there’s anything you use that’s missing, let me know in the comments! I’d love to learn more about Linux.

I first started learning how to code at age 12 when I taught myself how to make basic Windows batch scripts. It wasn’t long after that when the easy-to-use GUI drawing feature of Visual Basic 6 had me hooked on programming for good.
I graduated onto making proper network connected applications shortly thereafter. I was obsessed with making client-server programs that could talk to each other over TCP. I spent many of my younger years hacking away at the VB6 WinSock API. First learning how to make one client talk to a server, then figuring out how to make the server handle multiple clients at once and so on…
More recently I was tasked with making a real-time scoreboard for a company I’m currently contracting for. It involved an AngularJS front-end with a WebSocket client and a Node.JS server that would accept connections and broadcast the latest scores from a text file.
To be honest, before taking on this challenge, my Node.JS/Angular experience was sparse at best. But I saw the challenge as an opportunity and quickly learned what I needed to get the job done.
I was so amazed I thought I would make a tutorial explaining how to create a multi threaded chat client and server using Ionic and Node.JS.
