Node.js End-to-End Programming

Course Description

Node.js is one of the most revolutionary frameworks to come out in quite a while! Its asynchronous nature and flexibility makes it relevant for building everything from Web applications to client tools and you'll find it being used in a variety of ways. Node.js is based on JavaScript so if you're already comfortable with the JavaScript language you can be productive with Node.js right away.

In the Node.js/MEAN End-to-End Web Development course you'll learn how to build a Web application from start to finish using Express, MongoDB, Angular, and Node.js (the MEAN stack). Topics covered include building model classes , connecting to MongoDB with Mongoose, securing a site with Passport, building a shopping cart with Angular and Node.js RESTful services, creating controllers and routes with Express, binding data to views using Handlebars.js, and much more. If you're looking to learn the ins-and-outs of Node.js then this course is for you!
