Learn to write performant back-end applications in JavaScript by leveraging the Node.js runtime. Shaun Wassell teaches JavaScript developers how to write and run server-side JavaScript applications for the powerful Node.js runtime. It includes topics such as working with the file system, creating web servers, installing, using, and publishing NPM packages, Google V8 engine, testing, and much more.

Several years ago, it wasn’t possible to write JavaScript programs for the back-end. JavaScript was strictly limited to running in a browser, and if a developer wanted to write back-end software, they had little choice but to learn another programming language, such as PHP. Now, that has all changed. Thanks to Node.js, which allows JavaScript to be run outside the browser, JavaScript developers can write web-servers, server-side scripts, and any number of other useful back-end programs.

This LiveLessons video shows developers how to write and run server-side JavaScript applications for the powerful Node.js runtime.

What You Will Learn

Learn to quickly and easily write performant back-end applications in JavaScript by leveraging the Node.js runtime:
