In this hands-on course, you'll learn how to use Node.js, Restify and Mongo to build a slick RESTful API in record time.

Node.js is quickly emerging a new and POWERFUL development framework -- and it's time that you learn it.

While many courses out there focus on giving you a theoretical understanding of Node.js but not much in the way of practical example, this course is the opposite. This course is a hands-on course and we'll start creating our API right off the bat. In less than a couple hours, we'll build a simple CRUD (Create/Read/Update/Delete) API that will help boost your confidence and motivate you to continue learning!

In this course, you'll learn how to build a simple but robust RESTful API using the Node.js & Restify frameworks.

You'll learn how to:

  • Use Node.js and Restify to create fully RESTful APIs
  • Leverage existing classes and frameworks to cut down development time
  • Create a simple API with CRUD (Create/Read/Update/Delete) functionality
  • Fetch user information from a remote Mongo database (DBaaS)
  • Sanitize and validate data using CodeIgniter's built in form validation libraries

Things that are good to have before taking this course:

  • Javascript
  • MVC (Model-View-Controller)
  • Asynchronous callbacks and event-driven programming
  • Node.js (not required, but a plus)
