Content and Overview

This course explains key technology concepts of API's with REST and JSON technology in a Node.js system. We show development from start to finish to include deployment on a live production server not just a test machine.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Detailed knowledge of how to create Node.js / Express.js based REST/JSON API's
  • Learn how to use MongoDB as the back end for API's.
  • Teaching by example showing every detail to the smallest degree from starting a new application to deploying it in production.
  • Access to Instructors GitHub account with many extras and examples.

If you don't have a a production server device don't worry, we show you how to test everything on your local computer.

Note: Development is all described on a Mac OSX notebook, Windows is not address. Node.js using JavaScript is a portable language and all the tools described in this class are available on other systems as well but no intention is made to describe how to setup them up of use the Windows or Linux versions.
