Course Description

NodeJS is a rapidy growing web server technology, and Node developers are among the highest paid in the industry. Knowing NodeJS well will get you a job or improve your current one by enabling you to build high quality, robust web applications.

In this course you will gain a deep understanding of Node, learn how NodeJS works under the hood, and how that knowledge helps you avoid common pitfalls and drastically improve your ability to debug problems.

In this course we'll look at how the C++ written V8 Javascript engine works and how NodeJS uses it to expand the abilities of Javascript. You'll learn how to structure your code for reuse and to be easier to understand, manage, and expand using modules and understand how modules really work.

You'll learn how asynchronous code works in Node and the Node event loop, as well as how to use the event emitter, streams, buffers, pipes, and work with files. We'll see how that leads to building a web server in Node.

We'll dive intoweb sites, web apps and APIs with Express and learn how Express can save us time as Node developers.

You'll also gain an understanding of npm, connecting to databases, and the MEAN stack!

During it all you'll gain a deep understanding of the Javascript concepts and other computer science concepts that power Node.

NodeJS doesn't have to be hard to learn. The biggest mistake most coding tutorials make is expecting someone to learn simply by imitating others' code. Real world situations are never exactly like the tutorial.

I believe the best way to learn is to understand how a tool works and what it does for you, look at examples, and then try it yourself. That's how this course is built, with the goal to help you both learn and understand NodeJS.

Note: In this course you'll also getdownloadable source code. You will often be provided with 'starter' code, giving you the base for you to start writing your code, and 'finished' code to compare your code to.

What you'll learn

Grasp how NodeJS works under the hoodUnderstand the Javascript and technical concepts behind NodeJSStructure a Node application in modulesUnderstand and use the Event EmitterUnderstand Buffers, Streams, and PipesBuild a Web Server in Node and understand how it really worksUse npm and manage node packagesBuild a web application and API more easily using ExpressConnect to a SQL or Mongo database in NodeUnderstand how the MEAN stack worksBe the coder that explains NodeJS to everyone else because you understand it better than anyone else

Who this course is for

Those looking to build a career as a NodeJS developerThose desiring to become MEAN stack developersThose who don't have server technology experience but wish to gain this skillThose coming from other server technologies (like PHP, ASP.NET, or Ruby on Rails) and want to learn NodeThose who want to only have to write both client and server code in one language: JavascriptThose who want to grasp Express
