Advanced Node.js

The Advanced Node.js training course is designed to grow the Node.js skills of seasoned JavaScript developers.

The course begins with an introduction to Design Patterns that can help optimize code, moves into a discussion of the future of JavaScript, and takes a look at cutting edge technologies, patterns, and frameworks. Then, students will dive deeper into the concepts of behavior-driven development (BDD) and test-driven development (TDD) with Node.js, using mocking frameworks to write better unit tests, and Acceptance Testing. Students will use cucumber with gherkin to write integration testing and visualize how BDD cycles work.

Next, students will learn how to build certification into a delivery pipeline – learning the common modules used for automation with Node.js, how to use React with Backbone, and how to build React components using the Common JS module pattern with Browserify. Finally the course explores how to deploy applications to the cloud using Travis CI and Heroku.  

This course assumes proficiency in JavaScript, and experience with Node.js. If you are new to web development, we recommend beginning with our HTML5CSS3, and JavaScript courses; to build your Node.js foundation, start with our Introduction to Node.js course.
