Course Details

Node.js is an open source server-side platform based on V8, Chrome's JavaScript engine from Google. This hands-on course follows on from COMP 2015 or COMP 2132. It was designed for students who already understand how to build web pages with HMTL, CSS and JavaScript. Node.js uses an event driven, non-blocking I/O model making it a lightweight framework for building data intensive real-time applications. Students focus on the Node.js programming model and use it build networked web applications. Labs and exercises focus on using JavaScript to build networked web applications on Node.js platform. Topics include: Node's asynchronous programming model, express web application framework, accessing data store, using Node Package Manager to install and manage node modules. Web students may also want to complete COMP 2909 -Angular and Vue.js Fundamentals or COMP 2913 -React and Modern JavaScript. By the end of this course, successful participants will use Node.js Fundamentals to build scalable, data intensive networked applications using JavaScript.
