Interested in Node.js, but don't know where to start and how to find time to learn it properly? Would you prefer to learn in a way that is more interesting than reading books or watching online videos? Confused about how the MEAN stack pieces of MongoDB, Express.js, Angular.js and Node.js fit together?
Years ago, we were in the same boat, but we took the long route of learning from source code, books, blogs and free online documentation. We have put together the best information in the simplest way to help you learn about these systems. Basically, we are helping you to take a shortcut and save time, frustration and avoid costly mistakes by using the best practices available.
WHAT IS NODE PROGRAM?
Node Program is the fastest and most engaging way to get started with Node.js, MongoDB and Express.js. It’s an intensive weekend-long live course taught in the Bay Area by skilled experts who have run Node.js in production for years! Node Program is the ultimate way to get up and running with the foundations of Node.js, by learning the required foundational skills to use Node.js!
NODE PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS
NODE.JS is HOT
The growing Node.js popularity is happening for a few reasons:
The benefits of having a Node.js experience are many:
TAKE THE SHORTCUT
When I first started using Node.js, I wanted to find a shortcut and quickly get up to speed. Right away, I found out it was going to take some work. But, now that I have done the work, I want to share it with you, simplified—like a shortcut! There was no shortcut when I started! I spent weeks reading books and hacking on side projects, then spent years using Node.js in production, first at Storify and now at DocuSign. What I have done for you is I have taken all of the information that you need to get started and developed a training program that will get you up and running in only one weekend! That’s right, merely hours of your time.
We’re all busy professionals who strive for more at our jobs and businesses. Having Node.js in your toolbox can make you eligible to participate in an interesting new project or even get you that promotion that you’ve been waiting for. Not only is it perfect when you work for a company already using Node.js, but, if you’re running your own startup or building your own software product—you’ll have a definite competitive advantage and will be able to hire talented developers more easily because Node.js is the type of tool that many developers look forward to using.
INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO TEACHING
At Node Program we take this approach seriously, and provide you with the first three parts: mentorship, time for personal projects, paired programming and discussions. Then, students have a week to digest the information and come back for a follow-up session where we'll do office hours answering questions, reviewing code and looking at your projects' demos. So we are here to answer your questions and help you process the information, if needed. The office hours will be conducted one week after the training to answer any follow up questions.
Another difference compared to other educational formats is that Node Program is a customized learning experience. Basically treat us as your consultants. During the registration, you can ask us up to five questions before the course even starts! And during the course, you can work on your project and use our instructors as coaches. We also provide guidance to the applicants whose level is not advanced enough to get the full benefit of the program.
This is the core Node Program curriculum:
