About the course

Node.js is a free tool, cross-platform framework running on Mac OS, Windows, and Linux. Node.js course has been intended to help developers to learn and build web applications with the help of JavaScript. Node.js is an event-driven, server-side JavaScript environment that runs JavaScript utilizing the V8 engine developed by Google. The course focuses on different important concepts of Node.js and gives hands-on experience in building HTTP server with Node.js, working with the file system, buffers, stream, events, and multi-processing in Node.js. The training covers Express.js, which is a powerful and flexible web application framework that provides a robust set of features for web and mobile applications.

What are the requirements?

Training attendees should have a thorough knowledge of JavaScript. They should be familiar with web server application design concepts (such as accessing databases and SOA concepts), as well as basic HTML and CSS.
