Workshop Overview

Our Intoduction to Node.js training workshop is designed to demonstrate the power and flexibility of the Node.js platform. This workshop is a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises that provide practical real-world experience.
Since its introduction in 2009, Node.js has become one of the go-to platforms from developing everything for massively scaleable real-time enterprise web applications to automating Internet of Things embedded devices. Because it is written in JavaScript, the most popular and widely used programming language in the world, and has more than 200,000 publicly available opensource packages in its module ecosystem, developing Node.js applications increases developer productivity and reduces infrastructure costs. In our Intro to Node.js training workshop, students will learn:

  • The fundamentals of asynchronous server-side JavaScript
  • Node.js standard library including Streams, Buffers and HTTP servers
  • How to create, deploy and distribute Node.js applications
  • Workflow automation with Gulp and Grunt task runners
  • Interacting with NoSQL databases like MongoDB and Redis
  • The basics of building a real-time web application in the Express.JS framework

Workshop Prerequisites

Students must have a good working knowledge of computers, operating systems, using a mouse, keyboard, standard menus and commands. Students must be able to open, save, and close applications, files, as well as navigate to other folders.
To participate in the hands-on code demos, students should have a basic working knowledge web browsers. Previous experience with HTML, CSS and JavaScript/jQuery is helpful, but students without programming backgrounds still will be able to follow along and run sample code.
