Course Details

☆  Abstract

A few years ago, JavaScript served only as a front-end development tool and was used along with various server-side languages. That was until the release of the initial version of NodeJS.
Because of NodeJS, JavaScript could be used to write the code for backend applications as well.
Backend development is essential in any kind of application whether that is a mobile app, a web app, or a desktop app, because everything needs to have a backend for maintaining so many things under the hood.

NodeJS plays a significant role in the technology stack. It is one of the most popular choices for backend development. Express JS is a prebuilt NodeJS framework that helps in creating server-side web applications faster and smarter. It entails characteristics such as simplicity, minimalism, flexibility, scalability and since it is made in NodeJS itself, it inherits its performance as well.

NodeJS continually fetches data from the backend server. All of this data needs to be stored in a database. Even though NodeJS works well with the MySQL database, the perfect combination is a NoSQL like MongoDB wherein the schema need not be well-structured. MongoDB represents the data as a collection of documents rather than tables related by foreign keys. This makes it possible for the varied types of data dealt over the internet to be stored decently and accessed in the web applications using Node.js.

☆  About the course

This course goes in depth into the fundamentals of Node and then progresses to other tools, frameworks, and techniques for advanced backend development.

☆  Who is this course for?

This course is aimed at individuals that are seeking to improve their backend programming skills with Node. The typical candidate is passionate about technology and programming and is willing to explore new subjects.

☆  Expected learning outcomes

Upon course completion, students will be able to:

● Thoroughly understand Node JS
● Use Git to version the codebase and use it as a team collaboration tool
● Write CLI applications
● Understand HTTP
● Use Express and MongoDB to create powerful RESTful applications
● Use Postman to debug HTTP requests
