Node JS

Course Overview

Node.js came into existence when the original developers of JavaScript extended it from something you could only run in the browser to something you could run on your machine as a standalone application.

Now you can do much more with JavaScript than just making websites interactive.

JavaScript now has the capability to do things that other scripting languages like Python can do.

Both your browser JavaScript and Node.js run on the V8 JavaScript runtime engine. This engine takes your JavaScript code and converts it into a faster machine code. Machine code is low-level code which the computer can run without needing to first interpret it.

Node.js is an open-source, cross-platform JavaScript run-time environment that executes JavaScript code outside of a browser.

Anyone interested in learning node JS for developing web applications  through backend with improving JavaScript skills to help and its one of the most important topic in development.  

You should have basic knowledge of HTML & CSS. Basic knowledge of JavaScript to take up the course.

After completing the course there are more opportunities in the market as Full stack developer,  Application developer, web developer, UI developer, JavaScript developer in IT companies like paytm, Google, Netapp, service now, and more.

The main concepts covered are Introduction to Node.js, Modularizing code, Events and Streams, Accessing Local Resources, Node.js and the web, Building web applications using Express.js, Scaling Node applications, Node.js Eco System, Monitoring, advanced
