Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name's Jonathan Mills and welcome to my course Building Web Applications with Node. js and Express. Now I've been a JavaScript developer for quite a long time and I love being able to leverage those JavaScript skills in building backend web applications. I can take JavaScript anywhere I need it to go. So in this course, we're going to build a web application from the ground up using Node. js and Express. Some of the major topics we're going to cover, we'll cover quite a bit. Templating engines, there's a couple of different ways to write html out. And we're going to talk about what those are. We're going to talk about databases. We're going to cover both Mongo and SqlServer so you'll get a look at both different kinds of databases. We'll do some security with passport so you can see how to create users and how to log in and log out. And we're going to do some 3rd party APIs so that you can understand how to call out to a different API and pull data in and use that in your application. Now by the end of this course, you should be able to build a full blown web application all on your own. I'm going to cover just about everything you need to know to make that happen. Now before the beginning of the course, you should be familiar basically with JavaScript. I'm not going to talk about what JavaScript is and how JavaScript works but I will cover Node from the ground up. So you don't need to have any Node experience but it's helpful if you know JavaScript. So hopefully you'll join me on this journey to learn all about Node. js and Express here at Pluralsight.
