Course Description

Node.js has been helping developers build fast and data-intensive, real-world networking applications since 2009. Node.js’s clients include top companies such as PayPal, LinkedIn, Netflix, and Uber. This course will help you to build a solid foundation in Node.js fundamentals with the help of practical examples.

The course starts by introducing you to Node.js and then takes you through its installation. Next, you will get to grips with the NPM package manager, the Node.js API, asynchronous versus synchronous functions, HTTP response codes, and different types of Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME). You’ll also find out how to handle Ajax requests and explore different types of HTTP request methods. As you make progress, you’ll learn how to simplify web servers with Express and use Socket.io to build real-time chat messages and notifications. Towards the end, you’ll delve into session management, discover how to simplify sessions in Express, and understand the concepts of the MongoDB and templating engines.

By the end of this course, you’ll have become familiar with the basics of Node.js and developed the skills you need to modify the Document Object Model (DOM) confidently.
