By now, learning Node is virtually a prerequisite for becoming a full-stack or backend web developer.
The course clocks in at about 34.5 hours.
The four projects you build are:
1. A note-taking app to get your feet wet
2. A weather app that interacts with the MapBox and Dark Sky APIs
3. A task manager REST API with user accounts & authentication
4. A real-time chat application with a client-side companion
One thing you can always count on Rob and his team to do is keep courses updated.
This is so important in web development, where tech is constantly changing. Going six months to a year without updating a course can be a death sentence in many situations. But with The Complete Node.js Developer Course, Rob and Andrew stick to their updates no matter how tedious. This 3rd edition ensures you’re able to work with the latest version of Node without any issues.
An accomplished developer based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Andrew Mead has an awesome energy about him.
Within the first lecture, you can tell he’s enthusiastic about sharing his Node knowledge.
This stage presence is crucial in keeping things interesting while promoting student engagement. Have you ever taken a course where the instructor sounds like he’s watching paint dry when teaching? It’s a surefire way to make a course boring. And that is a recipe for failure when it comes to student success rates.
Fortunately, even though The Complete Node.js Developer Course is nearly 35 hours in length, Andrew manages to keep his energy levels consistent while delivering valuable lessons on Node. Whether it’s working with web servers or MongoDB & Promises, all the way to deploying on Heroku.
Overall, the Node projects, the enthusiastic Andrew Mead, and the thoroughness of topics make this a go-to course for aspiring Node developers.
