Learn how to connect your Angular Frontend to a NodeJS & Express & MongoDB Backend by building a real Application

Create modern, scalable and high-speed Web Applications with Angular (formerly named Angular 2, now just “Angular”) and NodeJS + Express + MongoDB.

Angular 1 and NodeJS, together with ExpressJS (a NodeJS Framework) and MongoDB formed the very popular MEAN stack. Now is the time to dive into MEAN 2.0 and replace Angular 1 with Angular 2+.

Benefit from the many improvements and advantages Angular offers you: Speed, ease of development, highly reactive, awesome support for asynchronous operations, great scalability and more!
And combine these advantages with the power of a NodeJS + Express + MongoDB backend!

Learn or refresh the Angular Basics!

This course is no Angular course, but it includes detailed explanations of the core concepts used as well as about Angular in general. However, keep in mind that, as this course is no Angular course, having additional resources like my “Angular – The Complete Guide” course is recommended.

In this course, Maximilian, experienced web developer as well as author of many 5-star rated Udemy courses and host of the “Academind” coding channel on YouTube, will take you on a hands-on journey to get you to build your own Angular + NodeJS Applications in no time.

This course follows a hands-on approach, which means that the whole course is structured around one big application and the different concepts will be explained detailedly as they are introduced in this application.

Specifically, you will learn how to:

  • Set up a NodeJS + Express + MongoDB + Angular Application with the help of the Angular CLI
  • Use NodeJS and Express efficiently
  • Build reusable Components in Angular and create a reactive User Experience with the Tools provided by Angular
  • Connect your NodeJS (or any other language!) backend with your Angular App through Angular’s HttpClient service
  • Provide appropriate endpoints on your Backend, for your Frontend to consume
  • Add advanced features like file upload and pagination
  • Make your Application more secure by implementing Users, Authentication as well as Authorization
  • Handle Errors gracefully
  • And much more…!

This hands-on concept allows you to not get stuck in the theory, but instantly see real implementation examples!

What Will I Learn?

  • Build real Angular + NodeJS applications
  • Understand how Angular works and how it interacts with Backends
  • Connect any Angular Frontend with a NodeJS Backend
  • Use MongoDB with Mongoose to interact with Data on the Backend
  • Use ExpressJS as a NodeJS Framework
  • Provide a great user experience by using Optimistic Updating on the Frontend
  • Improve any Angular (+ NodeJS) application by adding Error Handling
