Confidently follow learning paths that help you develop the right skills in the right order to achieve your goals.
In this course we begin with Node's background, concepts and strategies for writing asynchronous code. We then examine Node's module system, including built-in modules, application modularization as well as the NPM third party module registry. From there we tackle EventEmitters and Streams, as well as utilities for interacting with the local file system. Next we look at using Node to write both client and server web applications, as well as real time integration with Socket.IO. We cover writing unit tests using both the built-in assert module and third party frameworks. We wrap up with a look at launching child processes in Node and writing scalable applications with the "cluster" module.
Node.js is a simple and powerful tool for backend development. When combined with express, you can create lightweight, fast, scalable APIs quickly and simply. In this course, we will walk through how to stand up a lightweight Express server serving truly RESTful services using Node.js, Mongoose, and MongoDB. We will implement all of the RESTful verbs to get, add, and update data from our service. We will also spend some time working through unit and end to end integration tests for our services.
You can’t call yourself advanced without the knowledge and ability to write clean and testable code. This section of Node.js tutorials addresses those needs. Here you will learn common patterns using Node and also how to test your Node.js code.
