Hands-On Server-Side Web Development with Koa.js
What you'll learn
- Build a server-side application using Koa & MongoDB
- Create a Node .js server using the Koa .js framework
- Utilize REST APIs to perform various data handling operations
- Implement CRUD operations using MongoDB
- Handle errors efficiently using the try-catch function
- Utilize async-await to resolve API and database connections
- Make your application production-ready using Nginx and deploy it using Docker
- Who are currently working on the Node. js or Express frameworks and are keen to use the minimalistic Koa .js framework.
The demand for multi-functional applications has grown over the past few years. To simplify the application development process, Express has come up with Koa, a minimal version of the Node.js framework.
This course starts by helping you set up the environment you need to use Koa.js. You will learn to create a server using Node.js and Koa.js. You will build views, use the available Koa templates, and learn to authenticate your app and provide secure login access using JWT.
You’ll learn to use promises, and async functions while building your application, and how to handle errors using try-catch and utilize the middleware. Finally, you will master database connectivity and deploy your application on Docker. By the end of this course, you will be able to leverage the Koa framework to develop server-side applications.
