In this section, you’re going to set up your machine for the rest of the course. This includes installing Node.js and Visual Studio Code. This section also dives into what Node.js is, how Node.js works, and why Node.js is a tool worth learning.
In this lesson, you’ll install Node.js and Visual Studio Code. Both are free, open source, and available for all operating system. They’re the only tools needed to get started with Node!
Why should you use Node.js? In this lesson, you’ll learn what makes Node.js a tool worth using.
The best way to get started with Node.js is to explore its module system. The module system lets you load external libraries into your application. That’ll enable you to take advantage of built-in Node.js modules as well as third-party npm modules. This includes libraries for connecting to database, creating web servers, and more!
Node.js comes with dozens of built-in modules. These built-in modules, sometimes referred to as core modules, give you access to tools for working with the file system, making http requests, creating web servers, and more! In this lesson, you’ll learn how to load in those core modules and use them in your code.
Putting all your code in a single file makes it easy to get started with Node.js. As you add more code, you’ll want to stay organized and break your Node.js app into multiple scripts that all work together. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to create a Node.js application that’s spread out across multiple files.
When you install Node.js, you also get npm. npm is a package manager that allows you to install and use third-party npm libraries in your code. This opens up a world of possibilities, as there are npm packages for everything from email sending to file uploading. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to integrate npm into your Node.js app.
You can use npm modules from outside of your scripts by installing them globally. Globally installed modules are designed to be used from the terminal and provide you with new commands you can run. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to install and work with global modules.
It’s time to start building your first Node.js application. In this section, you’ll learn how to use the file system and command line arguments to create a note taking app. Along the way, you’ll learn how to get input from the user, work with JSON, and create a place to store user data.
I can’t think of a single useful application that doesn’t get input from the users. Whether it’s their email, location, or age, getting input is essential for creating real-world apps. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to set up command line arguments that allow users to pass data into your application.
Node.js provides a bare-bones way to access command line arguments. While it’s a good start, it doesn’t provide any way to parse more complex command line arguments. In this lesson, you’ll learn how to use Yargs to easily set up a more complex set of arguments for your application.
It’s time to connect your application with the outside world. In this section, you’ll explore the asynchronous nature of Node.js. You’ll learn how to use asynchronous programming to make HTTP API requests to third-party HTTP APIs. This will allow you to pull in data, like real-time weather data, into your app.
In this section, you’ll learn how to connect to a MongoDB database from your Node.js application. This will allow your application to store data in a secure and reliable fashion. The task application will use MongoDB to store user accounts as well as tasks.

This course was just completely refilmed to give you everything you need to master Node.js in 2019!
This includes new content, updated versions, new features, and more.
Have you tried to learn Node before? You start a new course, and the instructor has you installing a bunch of libraries before you even know what Node is or how it works. You eventually get stuck and reach out to the instructor, but you get no reply. You then close the course and never open it again.
I created this course to be what I wanted when I was learning Node.
The Complete Node.js Developer Course covers the fundamentals of Node before diving deep into great tools like Express, Mongoose, and MongoDB.
The entire course is based around a single goal: Turning you into a professional Node developer capable of developing, testing, and deploying real-world production applications.
The best way to learn Node is by building Node apps.
From the very start you’ll be programming every project and working through challenges that I’ve designed to reinforce what you’ve learned. This will give you the hands-on experience necessary to be able to create and launch your own project once you’re done.
You’ll be building four projects:
1. A note-taking app to get your feet wet
2. A weather application that interacts with the MapBox and Dark Sky APIs
3. A task manager REST API complete with user accounts and authentication
4. A real-time chat app with a client-side companion
By the end, you’ll be able to take what you’ve learned and launch your own Node application.
When learning, learn the latest.
I work to keep this course full of the most up-to-date Node material out there. This course is compatible with the latest Node.js version.
You’re getting access to hot-off-the-press features.
Everything you need comes in one easy-to-use package.
You can stop worrying if you're learning the right skills to build an app or land a new job. I've curated all the tech that's essential to building real-world apps. I've mapped out everything in a comprehensive, easy-to-follow package designed to get you up and running in a few weeks.
There’s no better time to learn Node.
According to the 2016 Stack Overflow Survey, Node is in the top ten for back-end popularity and back-end salary, with an average salary of $85k. This means more jobs and more opportunities for you.
You might get stuck. But I’m here to help.
