Learn full stack JavaScript by developing applications using Node.js, MongoDB, Express.js, and AngularJS.

Go from beginner to advanced by building 4 Node.js applications of increasing complexity. 

This course will teach you how to build web apps from the ground up while focusing on best practices. The main technologies used will be Node.js, Express.js and MongoDB.

We'll use a variety of templating engines for our frontend.  This will include Swig, Angular and plain HTML.

We'll be using Mongoose throughout this course. Mongoose is a node module built on top of MongoDB to assist in creating and handling database objects.
