    Understand the Node.js process object

    javascriptJavaScript

    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.
