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.
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)
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

Does this look like a lot of content? It certainly is!
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.
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.
