Welcome to this Node.js course! Let me introduce myself and give you a rough overview of this course and what it's all about!
What is Node.js? That's the most important question in a Node course I'd argue and in this lecture, we'll explore what exactly NodeJS is and why it's amazing.
We know what NodeJS is about - let's now see it in action. For that, let's install Node.js and create our first little application in this lecture.
Node.js can be used for a broad variety of things - web servers being the most prominent use-case probably. In this lecture, you'll get an overview of the different things NodeJS can be used for.
We got a good idea of what Node.js is, now it's time to understand what exactly is in the course. In this lecture, I'll give you a good overview of the course content and the order in which it is presented.
Your course success matters to me, hence in this lecture, I'll share some best practices regarding the course taking process and how you can get the most out of this course.
When writing Node code, you got two main options: Files which you execute or the REPL. This lecture explains + explores both alternatives.
- General knowledge of how the web works is recommended but not a must-have
- NO NodeJS knowledge is required!
Join the most comprehensive Node.js course on Udemy and learn Node in both a practical as well as theory-based way!
This course was updated to also include sections on Deno.js - in addition to more than 30 hours of content on Node.js!
Node.js is probably THE most popular and modern server-side programming language you can dive into these days!
Node.js developers are in high demand and the language is used for everything from traditional web apps with server-side rendered views over REST APIs all the way up to GraphQL APIs and real-time web services. Not to mention its applications in build workflows for projects of all sizes.
This course will teach you all of that! From scratch with zero prior knowledge assumed. Though if you do bring some knowledge, you'll of course be able to quickly jump into the course modules that are most interesting to you.
Here's what you'll learn in this course:
Node.js Basics & Basic Core Modules
Parsing Requests & Sending Responses
Rendering HTML Dynamically (on the Server)
Working with Files and generating PDFs on the Server (on-the-fly)
File Up- and Download
Using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) Pattern
Using Node.js with SQL (MySQL) and Sequelize
Using Node.js with NoSQL (MongoDB) and Mongoose
Working with Sessions & Cookies
User Authentication and Authorization
Validating User Input
Handling Payments with Stripe.js
Building REST APIs
Authentication in REST APIs
File Upload in REST APIs
Building GraphQL APIs
Authentication in GraphQL APIs
File Upload in GraphQL APIs
Building a Realtime Node.js App with Websockets
Automated Testing (Unit Tests)
Deploying a Node.js Application
Using TypeScript with Node.js
And Way More!
Does this look like a lot of content? It certainly is!
This is not a short course but it is the "Complete Guide" on Node.js after all. We'll dive into a lot of topics and we'll not just scratch the surface.
We'll also not just walk through boring theory and some slides. Instead, we'll build two major projects: An online shop (including checkout + payments) and a blog.
All topics and features of the course will be shown and used in these projects and you'll therefore learn about them in a realistic environment.
Is this course for you?
If you got no Node.js experience, you'll love this course because it starts with zero knowledge assumed. It's the perfect course to become a Node.js developer.
If you got basic Node.js experience, this course is also a perfect match because you can go through the basic modules quickly and you'll benefit from all the deep dives and advanced topics the course covers.
Are you an advanced Node.js user? Check the curriculum then. Maybe you found no other course that shows how to use SQL with Node.js. Or you're interested in GraphQL. Chances are, that you'll get a lot of value out of this course, too!
NO Node.js knowledge is required at all!
Basic HTML + CSS knowledge helps but is NOT required
- Beginner or advanced web developers who want to dive into backend (server-side) development with NodeJS
- Everyone who's interested in building modern, scalable and high-performing web applications
- Experienced NodeJS developers who want to dive into specific features like using GraphQL with NodeJS
