Course Description

Node JS a powerful tool for controlling web servers, building applications, and creating event-driven programming and it brings JavaScript, a language familiar to all web developers, into an environment independent of web browsers. Learn all about Node JS and start creating JavaScript applications in this course with me. I show how to install Node JS on Mac, Windows, and dives deep into its modules and Express framework for app development. Learn how to unit test your code, start sessions on web servers, stream data, and create simple command-line tools.

Node JS makes it possible to write JavaScript applications without a web browser. In this course, I will be showing you how to install Node JS on Mac, Windows, how to use frameworks to start web servers and generate HTML output, how to unit test your code to reduce bugs and errors. We will also learn how to stream data and create command line tools in node.

Node JS is a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. Node JS uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices so If you can do it in JavaScript you can do it in node.

First there's JaveScript, Node JS is a complete JavaScript environment, so familiarity with the language is essential. Next, we will be using the command line in every lecture. The Node JS interpreter is invoked as a command line tool. I'll be typing the exact commands you'll need to use, but general familiarity with command line interfaces will be helpful.

Finally, I recommend using a good text editor while working along. Most text editors will have syntax highlighting and convenient code completion tools. My favourite text editor is Sublime Text. It's available for Mac, Windows, and Linux, and can be evaluated for free.

Instructor Biography

Hassan Azimi, Software Engineer and Web Developer

Hi My name is Hassan Azimi and I am a software engineer and a web developer. My second job is to produce videos about technology and computers for people all over the world. I have first class degree with Honours one of the top universities in London and I am working towards the best technologies about software, coding and he web. I understand most of the programming languages mainly web based languages. I continuously enjoy learning new technologies exclusively programming languages by watching tutorials instead of reading books and this is not mean I don't read books at all. Subsequently, reading a lot of books about computers and watching more video lectures about programming and web developing, I educated a lot of new subjects and I decided to make the professional tutorials. I am obsessed with everything about computers and fascinated by everything about programming which leads me to build things like a puzzle. By reading books I noticed they do not have that impression, sense and excitement similar to videos. I do not mean they are useless, what I mean is they are far away from fun, practical, excitement and walking through each lesson. I noticed something else and that was lack of video tutorials about computing for Persians and Farsi speaking people and that must be because of low Internet speed and Internet censorship. I found Udemy is not censored in Iran but YouTube is and that was a great news for me, which made my students asking me to find a way to allow them to download my videos. I am sure some people do not learn only by reading as some people do. Most people who computing is their career are practical people rather than people with humanity subjects, one them is myself. I am a practical person, I learn by watching. Therefore, I decided to make video tutorials. Today I am the only best Persian tutorial source for all Persians and the only one who makes really professional tutorials with great video and audio quality. If you watch my tutorials you will notice I really care about every single video tutorials I make and I have so much respect to Udemy academy which I think it is one of the best ideas.
