FREE: Create a Node JS backend app and host it on AWS
- Create an AWS account
We take a learn-by-doing approach. In a matter of minutes, you'll have a running NodeJS Express application. Over the course of the lectures you'll develop your very own To Do List backend application.
After completing the To Do List app, we will learn how to deploy the app on AWS Fargate (using Docker containers) and then optionally purchase a domain name and have the entire world access our app through our very own custom domain!
In this course we will:
Build a very simple to-do app (backend only)
Containerize (dockerize) the app
We will then configure AWS Fargate to host our app.
Well, it's the most used programming language in the world
Heaps of community support when you encounter bugs and issues
Why is AWS Fargate so amazing?
It automatically provisions and monitors the load on our compute resources so we don't have to
It auto-scales our app so meet traffic loads, and scales back to reduce costs
It turns a traditional app into a "serverless" one

My all-time favourite quote is "If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough" by Mario Andretti. I wake up each day dreaming of creating truly outstanding and engaging products millions of people will want to use.
I studied Business Management, but technology always laid deep in my heart from the moment I first got my hands on a computer. Since a young age, I self-taught myself coding and web development, both front-end as well as back-end.
I can firmly say that having both Business and Technological skills has allowed me to get the jobs I always wanted to get at amazing tech companies, but more importantly, has allowed me to be free. Freedom in the form of being capable of building projects and startups that allow me to live the life I always dreamt of.
My personal goal is to pass this freedom on to more people, hopefully you too.
