ABOUT THIS workshop series

Node is one of the fastest growing platforms for building scalable web applications. In this workshop, you’ll learn how to get started using Node, its background and history, and the problems it seeks to address. You’ll also find out how asynchronous event-based development works with Node and write code together with your fellow students and teacher.

TAKEAWAYS

  • Demystifying Node: Find out the real pros and cons of using Node, why Node was created, and what problems it was designed to solve.
  • The basics of building web applications using Node: Students will build their own real time web app using key Node modules and features.
  • Setting up a MongoDB database: Students will learn the basics of working with document-based databases in Node.
  • The Node ecosystem: How to connect with other Node programmers and utilize open-source modules.

PREREQS & PREPARATION

Basic experience using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (or jQuery at a minimum) is recommended. We will not be spending any time discussing these topics in detail, rather all of our time will be dedicated to cracking our computers and digging into Node and how these technologies directly integrate with the Node platform.
