Node.js for Beginners: Building JavaScript Applications


Node.js Essentials

Node.js Essentials is a comprehensive course designed to introduce you to the world of Node.js and help you become proficient in building JavaScript applications with Node.js.

In this course, you will start by learning what Node.js is and how it works. You will understand the event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that Node.js is built upon, and see how it allows developers to efficiently handle high concurrency applications. We will dive into the architecture of Node.js, exploring its module system and the various built-in APIs it offers. You will also discover the rich ecosystem of third-party packages available through the npm (Node Package Manager) registry and learn how to manage dependencies for your Node.js projects.

Once you have gained a solid understanding of the foundational concepts of Node.js, we will move on to building practical applications. You will learn how to create command-line apps to automate tasks and perform file system operations. You will also explore the power of Node.js in web development, using the Express framework to build RESTful APIs. We will cover middleware configuration, including logging, authentication, and authorization, and show you how to handle incoming HTTP requests efficiently.

The course will dive into debugging techniques using Visual Studio Code, allowing you to fix bugs in your Node.js applications quickly. We will explore best practices for testing Node.js code and introduce you to popular testing frameworks and libraries.

By the end of this course, you will have a solid understanding of Node.js and be able to build robust JavaScript applications, whether they are command-line tools, web applications, or RESTful APIs.
