Syllabus of this Course :


    • 1 hour to complete
    • Introduction to Server-Side JavaScript
    • You may already be familiar with JavaScript, but did you know that there is a server-side JavaScript framework? Discover how developers use this powerful tool to develop rich, dynamic web applications. Get hands-on experience using Node.js to build your own simple web server. Explore how Node.js works by using callback functions and extend your Node.js applications by importing external modules.
    • 5 videos (Total 17 min), 2 readings, 3 quizzes


    • 2 hours to complete
    • Asynchronous I/O with Callback Programming
    • How can you optimize processor time with Node.js? Discover how Node.js operates in a non-blocking manner and how to handle the result from a network call. Explore the advantages of using anonymous callback functions. Use Node.js to parse JavaScript Object Notation (JSON) data from a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) message.

Now you will discover new features that make developing simpler and faster than older JavaScript capabilities. Explore how to access the React web framework user interface (UI) library and run a simple React application. Find ways to use React components and change their properties and states in a dynamic UI. You will use what you know about asynchronous calls to connect React to an external server.
