- Build an entire project from scratch!
- Refresh the basics about ReactJS, NodeJS, Express and MongoDB
- Learn how to implement Authentication & Authorization
- Add File Upload to ReactJS + Node/ Express Applications
- Basic knowledge about ReactJS is required

Building fullstack applications (i.e. frontend + backend) with the MERN stack is very popular - in this course, you will learn it from scratch at the example of a complete project!
MERN stands for MongoDB, Express.js, React.js and Node.js - and combined, these four technologies allow you to build amazing web applications.
In this course, we'll build an entire project and you will learn how these different technologies work together step by step. We'll first have a look at all the individual building blocks, so that we then can also combine them all into one amazing application by the end of the course.
This course also doesn't stop after the basics - instead, you'll also learn how to add file upload, authentication, authorization and how to deploy your application in different ways to different hosting services.
This course is taught by two instructors - Max (React.js, Node/ Express) and Manuel (MongoDB) who have years of experience of working with these technologies and teaching them to other people. We took and combined our experiences to deliver you the best possible MERN stack course you can find out there.
In detail, this course offers:
Brief refreshers on the core technologies (React, Node, Express, MongoDB)
Project sections for each technology where the theoretic knowledge is applied
Detailed theory about the MERN stack and the different ways of combining the technologies
A complete course project where all the technologies come together into one application
File (image) upload in both React.js (sending the file) and Node/ Express (receiving the file)
User authentication (signup + login)
User authorization (controlling access to certain resources)
Detailed deployment instructions - including different ways of deploying the application
Tons of quizzes and extra resources!
By the end of this course, you'll feel comfortable building your own MERN stack applications and you can build up on all the knowledge taught throughout this course to dive into your own projects and use-cases.
What are the requirements for taking this course?
NO prior MERN stack knowledge is required
Basic React.js knowledge is strongly recommended - a refresher is provided as part of the course but this course is NOT meant to teach React from the ground up
Basic Node + Express knowledge is recommended but not a must-have
As always, this course comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee.
We'd love to dive into this course together with you!
Who this course is for:
- Developers who got basic React knowledge and now want to build a fullstack app
- Advanced React developers who are interested in connecting React apps to Node/ Express
- Node/ Express developers who want to learn how to add a modern frontend to their backend

Experience as (Web) Developer
Starting out at the age of 12 I never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. Early I started creating websites for friends and just for fun as well. Besides web development I also explored Python and other non-web-only languages. This passion has since lasted and lead to my decision of working as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun I have in this job is immense and really keeps that passion burningly alive.
Starting web development on the backend (PHP with Laravel, NodeJS, Python) I also became more and more of a frontend developer using modern frameworks like React, Angular or VueJS in a lot of projects. I love both worlds nowadays!
As a self-taught developer I had the chance to broaden my horizon by studying Business Administration where I hold a Master's degree. That enabled me to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. While learning, that I enjoy development more than these fields, the time in this sector greatly improved my overall experience and skills.
Experience as Instructor
As a self-taught professional I really know the hard parts and the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enables me to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. My track record of many 5-star rated courses and more than 1,500,000 students on Udemy is the best proof for that.
Whether working as development instructor or teaching Business Administration I always received great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new, better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of my content.
Together with Manuel Lorenz, I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience to our more than 1,500,000 students.
Having worked as a business analyst in both a major consultancy and an investment bank, I always found myself confronted with both various and complex problem sets and challenging client demands. The rapid development of technology and business requirements forces everyone to constantly adapt and to continue learning.
Being an early adopter of new and quickly evolving tools, I always enjoyed both learning these tools and passing on my knowledge to my colleagues and fellow students.
Since working as a business analyst implies a high affinity to programming, I also enjoy working as a web developer. It's that combination of self-taught knowledge and its application in a highly competitive consulting environment for various clients which gave me the ability to evaluate solutions from an industry perspective as well as from a learner's perspective. The latter also allows me to identify the pain points students might hit when learning these tools.
Since I always found it hard to find high quality, understandable and comprehensive learning materials, I decided to create such materials on my own. Together with Maximilian Schwarzmüller I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience on web development and data science to our more than 1.500,000 students.
