Node JS

  • Duration: 10 weeks

NodeJS is a rapidy growing web server technology, and Node developers are among the highest paid in the industry. Knowing NodeJS well will get you a job or improve your current one by enabling you to build high quality, robust web applications.

In this course you will gain a deep understanding of Node, learn how NodeJS works under the hood, and how that knowledge helps you avoid common pitfalls and drastically improve your ability to debug problems.

In this course we’ll look at how the C++ written V8 Javascript engine works and how NodeJS uses it to expand the abilities of Javascript. You’ll learn how to structure your code for reuse and to be easier to understand, manage, and expand using modules and understand how modules really work.

You’ll learn how asynchronous code works in Node and the Node event loop, as well as how to use the event emitter, streams, buffers, pipes, and work with files. We’ll see how that leads to building a web server in Node.

We’ll dive into web sites, web apps and APIs with Express and learn how Express can save us time as Node developers.

You’ll also gain an understanding of npm, connecting to databases, and the MEAN stack!

During it all you’ll gain a deep understanding of the Javascript concepts and other computer science concepts that power Node.

NodeJS doesn’t have to be hard to learn. The biggest mistake most coding tutorials make is expecting someone to learn simply by imitating others’ code. Real world situations are never exactly like the tutorial.

I believe the best way to learn is to understand how a tool works and what it does for you, look at examples, and then try it yourself. That’s how this course is built, with the goal to help you both learn and understand NodeJS.

NODE.JS is an open-sourcecross-platformJavaScript runtime environment that executes JavaScript code outside a web browser. Node.js lets developers use JavaScript to write command line tools and for server-side scripting—running scripts server-side to produce dynamic web page content before the page is sent to the user’s web browser. Consequently, Node.js represents a “JavaScript everywhere” paradigm, unifying web-application development around a single programming language, rather than different languages for server- and client-side scripts.

Though .js is the standard filename extension for JavaScript code, the name “Node.js” doesn’t refer to a particular file in this context and is merely the name of the product. Node.js has an event-driven architecture capable of asynchronous I/O. These design choices aim to optimize throughput and scalability in web applications with many input/output operations, as well as for real-time Web applications (e.g., real-time communication programs and browser games).

The Node.js distributed development project was previously governed by the Node.js Foundation, and has now merged with the JS Foundation to form the OpenJS Foundation, which is facilitated by the Linux Foundation‘s Collaborative Projects program.

Corporate users of Node.js software include GoDaddy,Groupon, IBM, LinkedIn, Microsoft,Netflix,PayPal, RakutenSAP, Voxer,Walmart, and Yahoo!.
