What is Node.js?

Node.js, or Node, is a runtime environment for executing JavaScript code outside of a browser. It is ideal for building highly-scalable, data-intensive backend services (APIs) that power your client’s apps (web or mobile apps).

Why Should learn Node?

Node is great for prototyping and agile development as well as building super fast and highly scalable apps; Companies like Uber and PayPal use Node in production to build applications because it requires fewer people and less code. Plus, Node has the largest ecosystem of open-source library, so you don’t have to build everything from scratch.

You learn in this course how to use mongoDb without any installing extra tools, MongoDB is now on cloud, so you will store your database in safe place!

This course is including the building of the Backend API and all operations on the database, we are not doing frontend here

Checkout my other courses to connect this API’s and build frontend of the E-Shop with frontend technologies

This course is for you if:

You’re a back-end developer and want to add new technology to your stack.

You’re a front-end developer and want to transition to full-stack development.

You’ve tried other Node.js tutorials and found them to be too slow, out-of-date, and boring!

Having Node.js on your resume helps you find more jobs and make more money.

And not only this, you will have optional tasks to do and we can review them for you! Just pick up one task from the board and create the pull request to get the review, to be like in a real world experience!
