This hands on Node.js course will teach front end designers and server side developers how to rapidly create, maintain, and deploy Node.js applications. This course includes thorough coverage of the Node.js architecture, the V8 engine and the Node Ecosystem. The course takes a practical approach to creating and organizing Node.js applications using functions and modules as part of the Node.js organizational structure. This course will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of Node.js core modules and how to procure and install packages using npm. Attendees will learn to identify and correct problems through unit testing and exception handling.
Attendees will learn how to use Node.js to create Command Line Interface applications for system administration and process management, use Node.js networking modules to communicate with TCP/IP clients and servers such as HTTP servers, and create / consume REST (Representational State Transfer) data services. Attendees will learn how to leverage frameworks such as Express to rapidly build Web Applications. Attendees will learn how to use Node.js to connect to NoSQL databases such as MongoDB to store, retrieve, and manipulate data (i.e., achieve data persistence).
Comprehensive hands on exercises are integrated throughout to reinforce learning and develop real competency.
