Good beginners tutorial to socket.io? [closed]

I am very new to the world of webdevelopment and jumped into the bandwagon because I find the concept of HTML5 very interesting. I am fairly confident on working with canvas and would now like to move over to websockets part of it. I have come to understand socket.io is by far the framework to work with, when we want to work with web sockets.
Any pointers on what tutorial and examples to refer to for a total dummy would be very appreciated!
