A practical guide to building an interactive and fully-featured web application from scratch with Node.js and MongoDB
About This Video
Create fully-featured web applications using the combined power of MongoDB and Node.js
A few homework assignments are provided for those who want to get a better understanding of the concepts covered
This course contains easy-to-understand explanations, so you can learn by building, and it provides all the code examples you need to execute the processes and investigate the app
Web Development with Node.js and MongoDB will show you how to build powerful web applications from the ground up. Starting with the simplest "hello world"-based script and moving on to more and more advanced techniques, this course will show you what is possible while building your application.
We'll begin with some of the basic concepts of Node.js, Express.js, and MongoDB and build on this knowledge with practical examples. With each concept, the application will get more powerful and you will be able to process any business logic you may need.
We will then learn about Express.js to make web applications and MongoDB to persist your data. Then you will find out how to build on the shoulders of giants by consuming a RESTful API or become a giant by serving your own API. Later on, you’ll get to grips with automatically testing your application to make sure it is functioning properly.
At the end, we will take a look at deploying our application and improving its performance. The course closes with suggestions on further improvements that can be made to the application.
