This course was updated to also include sections on Deno.js – in addition to more than 30 hours of content on Node.js!

Node.js is probably THE most popular and modern server-side programming language you can dive into these days!

Node.js developers are in high demand and the language is used for everything from traditional web apps with server-side rendered views over REST APIs all the way up to GraphQL APIs and real-time web services. Not to mention its applications in build workflows for projects of all sizes.
This course will teach you all of that! From scratch with zero prior knowledge assumed. Though if you do bring some knowledge, you’ll of course be able to quickly jump into the course modules that are most interesting to you.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this course:

Node.js Basics & Basic Core Modules
Parsing Requests & Sending Responses
Rendering HTML Dynamically (on the Server)
Using Express.js
Working with Files and generating PDFs on the Server (on-the-fly)
File Up- and Download
Using the Model-View-Controller (MVC) Pattern
Using Node.js with SQL (MySQL) and Sequelize
Using Node.js with NoSQL (MongoDB) and Mongoose
Working with Sessions & Cookies
User Authentication and Authorization
Sending E-Mails
Validating User Input
Data Pagination
Handling Payments with Stripe.js
Building REST APIs
Authentication in REST APIs
File Upload in REST APIs
Building GraphQL APIs
Authentication in GraphQL APIs
File Upload in GraphQL APIs
Building a Realtime Node.js App with Websockets
Automated Testing (Unit Tests)
Deploying a Node.js Application
Using TypeScript with Node.js
Exploring Deno.js
And Way More!
Does this look like a lot of content? It certainly is!

This is not a short course but it is the “Complete Guide” on Node.js after all. We’ll dive into a lot of topics and we’ll not just scratch the surface.

We’ll also not just walk through boring theory and some slides. Instead, we’ll build two major projects: An online shop (including checkout + payments) and a blog.

All topics and features of the course will be shown and used in these projects and you’ll therefore learn about them in a realistic environment.
Is this course for you?

If you got no Node.js experience, you’ll love this course because it starts with zero knowledge assumed. It’s the perfect course to become a Node.js developer.

If you got basic Node.js experience, this course is also a perfect match because you can go through the basic modules quickly and you’ll benefit from all the deep dives and advanced topics the course covers.

Are you an advanced Node.js user? Check the curriculum then. Maybe you found no other course that shows how to use SQL with Node.js. Or you’re interested in GraphQL. Chances are, that you’ll get a lot of value out of this course, too!


NO Node.js knowledge is required at all!
NO other programming language knowledge (besides JavaScript, see next point) is required
Basic JavaScript knowledge is assumed though – you should at least be willing to pick it up whilst going through the course. A JS refresher module exists to bring you up to the latest syntax quickly
Basic HTML + CSS knowledge helps but is NOT required
Who this course is for:
Beginner or advanced web developers who want to dive into backend (server-side) development with NodeJS
Everyone who’s interested in building modern, scalable and high-performing web applications
Experienced NodeJS developers who want to dive into specific features like using GraphQL with NodeJS
Featured review
Wonderful introduction to NodeJS with plenty of excellent resources for future learning. The only true thing that makes it not perfect is the fact that it is very much so a Node + Express course, and not just a complete guide to NodeJS itself. Nevertheless, wonderfully detailed and great to get your own site off the ground. I’m glad to have other courses by the instructor to look forward to.
