About

Join the most comprehensive Node.js course. Node.js is probably THE most popular and modern server-side programming language you can dive into these days! Node.js developers are in high demand and the language is used for everything from traditional web apps with server-side rendered views over REST APIs all the way up to GraphQL APIs and real-time web services. Not to mention its applications in build workflows for projects of all sizes. This course will teach you all of that! From scratch with zero prior knowledge assumed. Though if you do bring some knowledge, you'll, of course, be able to quickly jump into the course modules that are most interesting to you. All topics and features of the course will be shown and used in these projects and you'll therefore learn about them in a realistic environment.

Here's what you'll learn in this course:

  • Node.js Basics & Basic Core Modules, Parsing Requests & Sending Responses
  • Rendering HTML Dynamically (on the Server), Using Express.js
  • Working with Files and generating PDFs on the Server (on-the-fly)
  • File Up- and Download, Using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) Pattern
  • Using Node.js with SQL (MySQL) and Sequelize, Using Node.js with NoSQL (MongoDB) and Mongoose
  • Working with Sessions & Cookies, User Authentication and Authorization
  • Sending E-Mails, Validating User Input, Data Pagination
  • Handling Payments with Stripe.js, Building REST APIs
  • Authentication in REST APIs, File Upload in REST APIs
  • Building GraphQL APIs, Authentication in GraphQL APIs
  • File Upload in GraphQL APIs
  • Building a Real-time Node.js App with Websockets
  • Automated Testing (Unit Tests), Deploying a Node.js Application

Prerequisites:-

  • NO Node.js knowledge is required at all!
  • NO other programming language knowledge (besides JavaScript, see next point) is required
  • Basic JavaScript knowledge is assumed though - you should at least be willing to pick it up whilst going through the course. A JS refresher module exists to bring you up to the latest syntax quickly
  • Basic HTML + CSS knowledge helps but is NOT required

Style and Approach

This is not a short course but it is the "Complete Guide" on Node.js after all. We'll dive into a lot of topics and we'll not just scratch the surface. We'll also not just walk through boring theory and some slides. Instead, we'll build two major projects: An online shop (including checkout + payments) and a blog.

Features
  • If you got no Node.js experience, you'll love this course because it starts with zero knowledge assumed. It's the perfect course to become a Node.js developer.
  • If you got basic Node.js experience, this course is also a perfect match because you can go through the basic modules quickly and you'll benefit from all the deep dives and advanced topics the course covers.

Maximilian Schwarzmüller - Professional Web Developer and Instructor

Since the age of 13, Maximilian Schwarzmüller has never stopped learning new programming skills and languages. In the early days, he started creating websites for friends and for fun. This passion has remained and shaped his decision to work as a freelance web developer and consultant. The success and fun he has in this job is immense and really keeps that passion alive. Although he started web development on the back end (PHP with Laravel and NodeJS), he has increasingly become a front-end developer using modern frameworks such as React, Angular, or VueJS 2 in a lot of projects. He loves both worlds nowadays! As a self-taught developer, he had broadened his horizon by studying Business Administration, resulting in a Master's degree. This enabled him to work in a major strategy consultancy as well as a bank. Whilst learning and developing his skills, he realized that he enjoyed development more than these fields.

As a self-taught professional, Max is familiar with the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enables him to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. His track record is the best proof of that. Whether working as development instructor or teaching Business Administration, he always receives great feedback. The most rewarding experience is to see how people find new and better jobs, build awesome web applications, acquire amazing projects, or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of his content.
