Understand the Node.js process object

Understand the Node.js process object

6:26
In this lesson, we introduce the *process* object, part of the node.js global namespace. The process object is extremely useful for identifying information about the runtime environment of your node app such as the version of node, the arguments passed to the node executable, the current working directory, and the nextTick function. All of these are discussed and illustrated with examples in this lesson.

Just little typo in description text: ", part of then node.js global namespace." should be "...the node.js global...".

Nice tutorial. But it's a bit tricky with non native English user like me. So I have to read the transcript several times to understand. I suggest that we should have diagram or some graphs to make concept/idea clearer
