In this course I will explain you what is NPM and how it is used.
This course is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of NPM, the Node.js package manager. Students will learn how to use NPM to manage Node.js packages and create their own packages.
The course begins with an overview of NPM and its role in the Node.js ecosystem. Students will learn how to install and configure NPM, including setting up a new Node.js project and managing project dependencies using NPM.
The course then dives into more advanced NPM features, including package versioning and semantic versioning.
Throughout the course, students will gain hands-on experience working with NPM through a series of practical exercises and labs. By the end of the course, students will have a solid understanding of NPM and be able to effectively manage Node.js packages in real-world scenarios.
