- Basic knowledge of REST APIs
- Basic understanding of client-server communications
- Basic knowledge of Node runtime environment
- Modern computer with internet access, Node, and npm
This course takes the following approach:
Finally, we'll switch over to the client side (front-end) and build a clean single page Web app (SPA) using only HTML/CSS/JS and jQuery. We'll deep dive into front-end development and making AJAX calls between our client app and server app.
By the end of this course, you will have a better and deeper understanding how to create your own REST APIs, how asynchronous and AJAX work, and why they're so important in modern Web applications.
Who this course is for:
- Beginner web developers who are curious about full-stack Web development using Node and Express
- Developers who are new to creating REST APIs and making AJAX calls
