What is NodeSchool? NodeSchool.io is a open source community that helps interested beginners get started with Node.js.
NodeSchool has installable choose-your-own-adventure style lessons to learn how to use Node.js, npm and other related tools by writing code to solve realistic problems. You can head over to http://nodeschool.io/ and check out the courses.
