Your one-stop solution to getting started with Node.js.

Course Description

Node.js, with its strong features and ability to write server- as well as client-side code with JavaScript, has become a popular choice among developers to build powerful web applications.
This course will help you get a comprehensive understanding of Node.js, and will also demonstrate how you can use the power of Node.js to create scalable and responsive web apps easily and efficiently. We will start by giving you an overview of Node and setting up an architecture to build web apps. Once the web app is ready, we will extend it by making it more responsive and adding popular plugins to it. You will also learn how to work with SQL and NoSQL databases, and finally will see how to deploy and maintain the application to a production environment.

Learning Outcomes

  • Install and configure Node.js on different OS platforms
  • Develop a web application using Node.js
  • Add responsiveness to the Express.js template engine
  • Understand the Node.js asynchronous programming model
  • Build a RESTful web services backend
  • Work with both SQL and NoSQL database engines
