Course description

In this course, we are going to build out more functionality of an application, focusing on how to leverage Express for Node.js to our advantage. We will start by taking a look at our server side coding, and eventually move on to our App.js customization and model setup. Once our server is configured, we will build out our remaining views and take the application live. We are going to take a look at how we can incorporate Bootstrap into our application to give it a more professional look and feel. Next we’ll go through the basics of installing Bootstrap, how to include it into the project, and also how we can integrate and configure it within the application.


This course is for users with experience with relational and non-relational databases. The user should also have programming experience with JavaScript. This course was filmed on a MAC but its programming principals apply to development on the PC as well. The course ‘NoSQL/MongoDB: What is NoSQL’ and ‘NoSQL/MongoDB: Implementation of AngularJS’ should be viewed before taking this course.
