In this 1-hour 30-minute long project-based course, you will learn how to set up a Node project and your development environment, create a basic express server and routes, set up a MongoDB Database and Mongoose models, and implement Twitter functionality (CRUDs). By the end of this project, you will create a fully functioning backend server for a Twitter clone with Node, express and MongoDB. You will have enough knowledge to start working on any backend projects comfortably. This project will give you a head start into backend development which could lead to, if pursued and expanded on properly, a brand new back-end development career. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
