Create a Complete Desktop Chat Application From the Scratch using Electron Framework to build it using Web Technologies and release it on different platforms  (Windows/Linux/MacOSX)

We are going to use Trending Frameworks and Libraries for building the app Node.js for The base App, React for Front-End rendering, Socketio for Server Communication (Messaging System), Node.js (Express) Servers & RESTFUL APIs for providing full Multiple Clients Communication and NoSQL MongoDB Database For Registration and Authentication System, basically we are going to cover everything needed to create your own application where Electron framework help us to Distribute it on either Desktop or Web platforms so code once publish everywhere.

At the end we will take the create application and publish it (create a real platform independent application installer) so you can share it with you closest friend for private chat.

All the topics we cover in this series are available on my free learning platform (and youtube channel), so you can learn about anything you want (Check BIO).

Full Source Code will be available to you on Github, so when ever you feel lost you still can follow along.
