Course Description

Do you want to build fast and powerful back-end applications with JavaScript? Would you like to become a more complete and in-demand developer?
Then Node.js is the hot technology for you to learn right now, and you came to the right place to do it!
Welcome to the Complete Node.js, Express and MongoDB Bootcamp, your fast track to modern back-end development.
This course is the perfect all-in-one package that will take you from a complete beginner to an advanced, highly-skilled Node.js developer.
Like all my other courses, this one is completely project based! And not just any project: it's a complete, beautiful and feature-rich application, containing both a RESTful API and a server-side rendered website. It's the most fantastic and complete project that you will find in any Node.js course on the internet!
By building this huge project, you will learn all the skills that you need in order to plan, build and deploy your own modern back-end applications with Node.js and related technologies.
(Actually, if you feel like exploring the project, you can do so at And this is only a small part of the project! Log in with "" and password "test1234")

After finishing this course, you will:
1) Be building you own fast, scalable and powerful Node.js RESTful APIs or web applications;
2) Truly understand how Node.js works behind the scenes;
3) Be able to work with NoSQL data and model data in real-world situations (a hugely important skill);
4) Know how modern back-end development works, and how all the different technologies fit together (hard to understand from scattered tutorials and videos);
5) Have experience in professionally-used tools and libraries like Express, Mongoose, Stripe, Sendgrid, Atlas, Compass, Git, Heroku, and many more;
6) Have built a complete application, which is a perfect starting point for your own applications in the future.
Please note that this course is NOT for absolute web development beginners, so you should already be familiar with basic JavaScript. NO back-end experience required though!

It's an absolutely full-packed, deep-dive course with over 40 hours of content!
Since this is the "Complete Node.js Bootcamp", the course is crammed with tons of different technologies, techniques, and tools, so that you walk away from the course as a complete Node.js developer.
That's why the course turned out to be over 40 hours long. But if that sound like too much for you, don't worry, there are videos or entire sections that you can safely skip.
Here is exactly what you're gonna learn:
  • Fundamentals of Node.js, core modules and NPM (Node Package Manager)
  • How Node.js works behind the scenes: event loop, blocking vs non-blocking code, event-driven architecture, streams, modules, etc.
  • Fundamentals of Express (Node.js framework): routing, middleware, sending responses, etc.
  • RESTful API design and development with advanced features: filtering, sorting, aliasing, pagination
  • Server-side website rendering (HTML) with Pug templates
  • CRUD operations with MongoDB database locally and on the Atlas platform (in the cloud)
  • Advanced MongoDB: geospatial queries, aggregation pipeline, and operators
  • Fundamentals of Mongoose (MongoDB JS driver): Data models, CRUD operations, data validation, and middleware
  • Advanced Mongoose features: modeling geospatial data, populates, virtual populates, indexes, etc.
  • Using the MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture
  • How to work with data in NoSQL databases
  • Advanced data modelling: relationships between data, embedding, referencing, and more
  • Complete modern authentication with JWT: user sign up, log in, password reset, secure cookies, etc.
  • Authorization (user roles)
  • Security: best practices, encryption, sanitization, rate limiting, etc.
  • Accepting credit card payments with Stripe: Complete integration on the back-end and front-end
  • Uploading files and image processing
  • Sending emails with Mailtrap and Sendgrid
  • Advanced error handling workflows
  • Deploying Node.js application to production with Heroku
  • Git and GitHub crash course
  • And so much more!

Why should you learn Node.js and take this course?
If you want to learn Node.js and modern back-end development, then there is no doubt that this course is for you!
It's the biggest Node.js course on the internet, it has by far the most complete course project, and offers the most in-depth explanations of all topics included.
And even if you already know some Node.js, you should still take this course, because it contains subjects that are not covered anywhere else, or not in the same depth!
But maybe you're not yet convinced that Node.js really is the right technology for you to learn right now?
Well, first, Node.js will allow you to use your JavaScript skills to build applications on the back-end. That itself is a huge gain, which makes your full-stack development process so much easier and faster.
Plus, popularity and opportunities for Node.js are off the charts. It's a modern, proven and reliable technology, used by tech giants (and 6-figure-salary-paying-companies) like Netflix, PayPal, Uber, and many more.
Node.js really is what you should invest your time in, instead of outdated technology like PHP.
In summary, if you already know JavaScript, learning Node is the logical next step for you! It will make you a better, more versatile and complete developer, which will ultimately boost your opportunities in the job market!
And I created this course to help you do exactly that! It really is the course I wish I had when I was first learning back-end development with Node.js and all related technologies.

Le cours est trs bien. J'y ai trouv de bonnes informations et le projet intressant. Une suggestion : mettre plus de commentaires dans le code afin de pouvoir mieux suivre le droul du cours. Pour certaines parties du cours, lorsque l'on revoit du code crit 5 ou 6 vidos auparavant, il est difficile de se rappeler de certaines choses quand cela fait 1, 2 ou 3 jours (ou plus) que l'on a regard une prcdente vido. Vu la dure du cours (quasi 40hrs), il me parait indispensable de tout commenter dans les vidos, surtout pour les dbutants. Cela facilitera les "bons" dans le temps pour les tudiants, et a facilite le rappel en mmoire. La qualit gnrale est vraiment au rendez-vous. Trs pro. Merci.

It was a wonderful learning experience. Jonas is an awesome instructor he explains every concept with clarity. The lecture slides provided are really helpful when you ever need a refresher. A huge thank you, Jonas, I look forward to learning from you more.

Jonas is one of the best teachers in Udemy, I have taken all of his courses and the amount of knowledge I have now is stunning comparing when I started to study web development, this Node course is full of real life examples, and now I can make my own projects using these technologies, also his user interfaces always are very good ?

Coming from Jonas' other courses, I had a high expectation on this course, and this really matched it.I'm so happy that I somehow picked his course in the begining of my learning street.Thank you very much Jonas, I'm looking forward to hear about your next course!

Yes, this course was awesome! I gained much exposure to many different very useful software tools and resources that I had no idea existed. There is so much information to wrap your head around and can take some time to get yourself familiar with everything, but definitely worth it. Amazing course, I enjoyed it very much!

This was a great course and exactly the skill set I was looking for. Things are explained very well and from the beginning without assuming you already know something, just like it is described it would be. However, it took me way more than 40 hours to complete. It took me 6 months, but that was doing an hour or so a day, skipping some days. It took dedication to stick with it and see it to the end and it was very rewarding that I did. I learned many concepts that are used within my career that I did not understand prior to taking this course. Definitely recommend taking the time to complete this course!

That was an incredible journey! I highly recommend this course to anyone, who interested in getting to the world of back-end with Node.js

O curso excelente, a didtica do professor, o nvel de informaes passadas, a praticidade. Um timo investimento! Congrats Jonas!!!

Este curso incrvel. Muito alm das minhas expectativas. Se eu pudesse dar mais estrelas, eu daria. A didtica fascinante. Consegui aprender aqui vrias coisas que j havia tentado em outros cursos e n�o tinha conseguido. O melhor curso que j fiz em desenvolvimento backend.

This is probably the best Node.js, Express, MongoDB and several other related stuff covering course you can get. I really enjoyed every single minute of this great course and learned so much, that I now feel very confident to build a complex web app, because all I needed to know for that is actually in this course deeply but also very clearly covered.

One of the best course that I found on Udemy. The teaching style of Jonas is really awesome. I learnt a lot from him. Please go through all the courses that he has created. I have bought all the courses and it is highly recommended if you really want to be a good full stack developer. Love to be your student. Really waiting for your next course.

I've taken a bunch of courses from different instructors and several of them have been excellent. I have to rate the completeness of this course and how well things were explained as the very best. I look forward to taking other courses from Jonas.
