Video Description

Build and develop your own multi-purpose real-time websites with Redis and Socket.io

About This Video

  • Discover the simplicity of Redis to make web applications faster than before

  • Create unique web servers and networking tools with Node.js

  • Implement real-time applications on websites using Socket.io with Express and Redis

  • In Detail

    Unity is a cross-platform, exciting and popular engine in the game industry. This video course shows you how to use Node.js to build websites, and focuses primarily on Express as the framework that the website will be built in. In addition to Express, we cover the use of Redis and Socket.io to make more robust and dynamic sites. Many courses only focus on one of these, but this course covers all of them.

    By the end of this course, you will be able to build applications using Express, Redis, and Socket.io. Express helps by making full-featured web applications easy if you know how. Redis opens doors by making data quick and easy to fetch. Many sites have used Redis to make difficult data problems easy. Lastly, Socket.io makes two-way communication between the browser and web application easy. If you have ever needed to build something that was real-time, then Socket.io is what you want to use.
