Description

Learn how to answer most of the questions an experienced Node developer is expected to answer. In this course, Advanced Node.js, you'll learn the core Node.js concepts and API modules from simple utility modules all the way to streams and clusters. First, you'll discover Node's architecture and dependencies and how the require module and it's 5 major steps. Next, you'll explore the event-loop and it concurrency model and also about event emitters, callbacks, and promises. Then, you'll be working with TCP, UDP, HTTP, HTTPS, os, fs, console, and util. Finally, you'll learn about readable, writable, and transform streams and will also learn how to use the child process module and load balancing with the cluster module. By the end of this course, you should be comfortable understanding advanced code written in Node, and writing efficient and scalable node modules and packages.

Hi everyone, my name is Samer Buna, I am a software engineer at jsComplete.com and I am excited to present to you this advanced course about Node.js.

This course is completely about the Node.js runtime itself and absolutely not about the popular NPM packages that are usually presented in courses about Node. This course hopes to teach you the core Node.js concepts and API modules from simple utility modules all the way to streams and clusters.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Node’s Architecture and dependencies
  • The require module and its 5 major steps
  • The event-loop and its concurrency model
  • Event emitters, callbacks, and promises
  • Working with TCP, UDP, HTTP and HTTPS
  • Node Common Built-in Libraries like os, fs, console, and util
  • Node’s built-in debugging options
  • Readable, Writable, and Transform streams
  • Using the child process module and load balancing with the cluster module
By the end of this course, you should be comfortable understanding advanced code written in Node, and writing efficient and scalable node modules and packages. You’ll be able to answer most of the questions an experienced Node developer is expected to answer.

Before beginning this course, you should be comfortable with JavaScript itself to get a better value out of this course. This includes the modern JavaScript features of EcmaScript 2015 and beyond.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Node.js beyond the basics with the Advanced Node.js course at Pluralsight.
