1-Hour Node.JS Training


35 per hour - Virtual OK

I will teach you how to develop software with Node.JS.

Have you been thinking about learning Node.JS but don't know where to start? I can help you with that. I used Node.JS extensively every day for my work and would love to teach you how to use Node.JS too!

This training is geared towards both the seasoned programmer, and also to those just starting out learning to code. (Though beginners may need to book more hours if they want to get through all the material).

- Setting up a an Node repository
- NPM/Yarn Commands
- Designing your program
- Learning how to use JavaScript / ES6 / ESNext
- Writing the code for your program
- Structuring your code
- Using other people's code/plugins inside your program
- Testing your code
- Publishing your code
- Maintaining your code

If you have an idea of what you would like to build, this can be a helpful way to approach lessons. We start building your idea while we learn.

Some ideas are: connecting to backend services that use 3rd party APIs, like Google, Facebook, IBM, etc. I can teach you how to connect to database services, create servers for apps, games or a website. The possibilities are endless!

Training & Qualifications

I am a consulting web and mobile applications developer creating apps for healthcare in Boston. I have been creating websites for 2 decades, and producing apps for clients for about 10 years.
