Understand the JavaScript language itself, Node.js, MongoDB, The Web Browser and More To Create Meaningful Applications

Learn the incredibly popular and in demand JavaScript language. This course makes no assumptions of prior computer programming experience. We begin with the very basics and slowly but surely work our way up to writing JavaScript code to power every aspect of an application.

There are countless JavaScript courses in the world; here’s what makes this one unique:

A strong emphasis on the “why” and not just the “how”

As few assumptions as possible; it’s a pet peeve of mine when instructors assume I know something I don’t

As few “just download my existing project to get you up and running” moments as possible. It’s another pet peeve of mine when instructors have you use an existing solution that just “automagically” works and you miss a potential learning experience of setting it up yourself. We do copy-and-paste HTML templates (since the focus of the course is not about HTML) but aside from that I explain things from the ground up.

Here’s what we’ll learn in the course:

  • The JavaScript language itself
  • The Web Browser Environment
  • The Node.js environment
  • The MongoDB environment
  • The Express framework for creating servers
  • User registration & user-generated content
  • Authentication (both stateful with sessions and stateless with JSON Web Tokens)
  • … and much more!
