    About this course

    Node.js, with its strong features and ability to write server- as well as client-side code with JavaScript, has become a popular choice among developers to build powerful web applications. It is the most popular framework to create server-side applications with, be it web, desktop, or mobile.

    This comprehensive 4-in-1 course will guide you through the process of building a web application with Node.js and all the necessary libraries to get your application up and running. This hands-on practical guide to the landscape of Node.js will work with you to build a question-and-answer platform. Explore the latest features of Node.js 6.x by creating dynamic server-side applications. Create three- four complete projects from scratch by implementing various Node.js features. Create real-time data-driven server side applications on your own.

    Contents and Overview

    This training program includes 4 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.

    The first course, Learning Node.js, is your one-stop solution to getting started with Node.js. This video will help you get a comprehensive understanding of Node.js, and will also demonstrate how you can use the power of Node.js to create scalable and responsive web apps easily and efficiently. We will start by giving you an overview of Node and setting up an architecture to build web apps. Once the web app is ready, we will extend it by making it more responsive and adding popular plugins to it. You will also learn how to work with SQL and NoSQL databases, and finally will see how to deploy and maintain the application to a production environment.

    The second course, Node.js Projects, is a project based practical guide to create dynamic server-side applications. While building these applications, we’ll employ several other frameworks and you’ll get a solid understanding of how to integrate and use other frameworks in tandem with Node.JS 6.X. You’ll create a data intensive application with MongoDB, use AngularJS to create a front-end application, and utilize Bootstrap to create a truly responsive web app. We will also show you how to use socket frameworks with your Node.js applications.

    The third course, Mastering Node.js, covers building powerful applications from console applications that can assist on your day to day job to scalable network applications. The course will then teach you to use and define streams and transformers, after which you will be skilled to build a web server with Express.js. This will be followed by taking you through how to read, write, and manipulate files in the file system with Node.js. You will even learn how to create micro services with the loopback API framework and Seneca.js, post which we will scale our node.js application and test our code. Finally, you will complete your learning journey by using these APIs to create a web server, access file system, and create real-time interactions. With this course, you will be able to build your own tools, along with big network and real-time applications.

    The fourth course, Hands-on Application Development with Node.js, covers power of Node.js to build a full-stack web application. Throughout this journey, you will work with express.js, query a database with an ORM library in Node.js, and secure your application by implementing an authentication process. With this course, you will be able to create your own web applications in Node.js. The best way to learn something new is to get your hands dirty and try out Node.js together with us. We will give you all you need to create real-world applications with node. This comprehensive, easy-to-follow course is designed to get you up-and-running in a few weeks.

    By the end of the course, you’ll harness the power of Node.js to build a full-stack, dynamic server-side applications web application.
