Course Description

node.js Awards Sponsored

This course was just completely refilmed to give you everything you need to master Node.js!
This includes new content, updated versions, new features, and more.
Have you tried to learn Node before? You start a new course, and the instructor has you installing a bunch of libraries before you even know what Node is or how it works. You eventually get stuck and reach out to the instructor, but you get no reply. You then close the course and never open it again.
Sound familiar?
I created this course to be what I wanted when I was learning Node.
The Complete Node.js Developer Course covers the fundamentals of Node before diving deep into great tools like Express, Mongoose, and MongoDB.
The entire course is based around a single goal: Turning you into a professional Node developer capable of developing, testing, and deploying real-world production applications.
The best way to learn Node is by building Node apps.
From the very start you'll be programming every project and working through challenges that I've designed to reinforce what you've learned. This will give you the hands-on experience necessary to be able to create and launch your own project once you're done.
You'll be building four projects:
1. A note-taking app to get your feet wet
2. A weather application that interacts with the MapBox and Dark Sky APIs
3. A task manager REST API complete with user accounts and authentication
4. A real-time chat app with a client-side companion
By the end, you'll be able to take what you've learned and launch your own Node application.
When learning, learn the latest.
I work to keep this course full of the most up-to-date Node material out there. This course is compatible with the latest Node.js version.
You're getting access to hot-off-the-press features.
Everything you need comes in one easy-to-use package.
You can stop worrying if you're learning the right skills to build an app or land a new job. I've curated all the tech that's essential to building real-world apps. I've mapped out everything in a comprehensive, easy-to-follow package designed to get you up and running in a few weeks.
There's no better time to learn Node.
According to the 2016 Stack Overflow Survey, Node is in the top ten for back-end popularity and back-end salary, with an average salary of $85k. This means more jobs and more opportunities for you.
You might get stuck. But I'm here to help.
There's nothing worse than getting five hours into a course, getting stuck, and not getting the help you need to continue.
I'm in the Q&A everyday to help you get unstuck. I reply to every question to get you back on track.
Don't take my word for it. Check the reviews and see what other students are saying.

Andrew Mead

I'm Andrew, a full-stack developer living in beautiful Philadelphia!
I launched my first Udemy course in 2014 and had a blast teaching and helping others. Since then, I've launched 3 courses with over 110,000 students and over 18,000 5-star reviews.
I currently teach JavaScript, React, and Node.
Before I ever heard about Udemy or thought about teaching, I created a web app development company. I've helped companies of all sizes launch production web applications to their customers. I've had the honor of working with awesome companies like Siemens, Mixergy, and Parkloco.
I have a Computer Science degree from Temple University, and I've been programming for just over a decade. I love creating, programming, launching, learning, teaching, and biking.
I can't wait to see you inside one of my courses! Hi! I'm Rob. I have a degree in Mathematics from Cambridge University and you might call me a bit of coding geek.
After building websites for friends and family for fun, I soon learned that web development was a very lucrative career choice. I gave up my successful (and sometimes stressful) job as a teacher to work part time and today, couldn't be happier.
I'm passionate about teaching kids to code, so every summer I run Code School in the beautiful city of Cambridge. I also run the popular web hosting and design service, Eco Web Hosting which leaves me free to share my secrets with people like you.

As a beginner, the course was easy to understand. Of course, I didn't understand 100% because of being beginner, but I obviously learned a lot from the course.

This a great class! There is an amazing amount of material here. I had done a little javascript programming before but this is at a much higher level. I am looking forward to taking more classes.

You shouldn't spend time on the explanation of how you can copy a file to clipboard or right-click and copy. This is an advanced programing tutorial not basic usage of the computer.30 hours of videos will then be 20 and more efficient without losing time on those unimportant things. By the way, everything else is great and thanks for a great course.

Thanks Andrew/Adam! This content is amazing. I feel like I learned more from this course then I did through my coding at University. I started working my way through this courses edition 2 then edition 3 came out. I decided to start from the beginning again since it would be good review. It took me about 10 months to complete this course, but I was on and off. Andrews teaching style makes it easy to pick off where you started last even if its been a few months since you last touched it. I'll be picking up Andrews React course after this :). Thanks again for the great course Andrew and thanks Adam for answering a lot of my questions!

I am completely new to nodejs. This course has been a great introduction for me. Everything is explained very well and Andrew makes it easy to understand and follow. I love how everything is broken down and then built up upon.

Awesome course! Andrew is an amazing teacher! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who looking to get started in back-end development and gain a high-intermediate knowledge about node! Thank you so much!

The way Andrew explores teaches and make complex things into miniature is phenomenal.loved the course all the way. anyone who got interested in learning trending technologies like node.js, it cant be a nicer opportunity than this.with the wonderful help of tutors like Andrew,it makes our aspiration more easy.i just recommend to grap this course blindly

Aw, the journey was long but the topics covered are kick ass. I am a front end developer trying to go JS full stack and this course was a great choice for the purpose. I would love to see an advanced node course , something like an amazon clone or a fully featured ecomm app with payments and all. The teaching style is awesome, materials are upto date . The only suggestion that I have is, I found it tought to read from screen as the letters were too small. Either the recording software can be used to zoom up, or the VS code can be put on zoom 1 or 2. I always needed to go full screen to read from the video. Thanks a ton! New year kicked off great.

I had zero knowledge about nodejs before i take this class. It really helped me to develop application. Thank you for explaining each and every topic.Now i can create and deploy application in production. I really enjoyed :)

I appreciate a professionalism of this course: great processing as well as very professional speech (I am not a native speaker and if somebody speaks like Andrew does, it is a real pleasure to listen it to :)I appreciate many opportunities to try coding during the course.Also topics/features/apps presented here I find very useful.I can recommend this course to 100%.

very good match, Andrew never skip steps, explaining the concepts behind the code.a wonderful teacher in my eyes, i learned a lot from it,not only Node Js , but how to improve my thinking as well.

I have taken many courses in Udemy and Lynda (LinkedIn). In my view Andrew is by far the best instructor.
