The sidebar in section 4.3 discusses installing Node.js; however, it does not explicitly recommend a minimum release of Node.js to use for the examples to work. Assuming that somebody is installing Node.js for the first time, there is a good chance that they will install a 6.x release and the examples will work. However, a reader could have an older version of Node.js installed and the nodecc example could throw errors.

Hi Ed,

thanks for your feedback.

Our examples are built based on nodejs version 8.

There is a small hint at the beginning of each section/chapter. But Michael and I discussed an approach to clarify the requirement recently.

The sidebar will include the following with the next version: All examples in this book are tested with Node.js version 8.

Hi Ed,

I added the version hint to the book. I'm not sure when it will be updated in the MEAP but it will be in the final book.
