Course 2 4 weeks

Backend Development with Node.js

This course introduces the fundamental tools needed to build a basic API in a way that is both scalable, and maintainable. You will work with Node.js and its core modules, write TypeScript for developer error reduction, test with Jasmine to introduce unit testing in a Test-Driven Development environment, and use Express as a framework for building APIs.

Lesson 1

Foundations of Backend Development

Discover the tools that make backend development possible. You'll learn how those tools are used throughout the course and how they'll set you up to write clear, maintainable code.

Lesson 2

Getting Started with Node.JS

Learn how JavaScript is used serverside with Node.js. You'll work with the tools Node.js provides as well as integrate third-party packages to create the backend for your applications.

Lesson 3

Developing with TypeScript

Take advantage of strict typing by learning to write TypeScript, one of the most popular for application development. You'll write code in a way that reduces errors and expresses your intentions.

Lesson 4

Unit Testing with Jasmine

Explore the software development testing paradigm. You'll learn how Jasmine can be used as a Test-Driven Development framework for writing server-side unit tests to create bug-free maintainable code.

Lesson 5

Building a Server

Build a server with the Express framework. You'll learn how APIs are architected and create and use middleware for expanded functionality. Finally, you'll learn to read and write to the file system.

Lesson 6 • Project

Image Processing API

Create an API that takes advantage of all the tools you have learned in this course. You'll create an image processing API that resizes and saves images to user specifications when visiting a URL

Course 3 4 weeks

Creating an API with PostgreSQL and Express

This course covers the primary skills required for API development. Students will build a RESTful JSON API with Node and Postgres. Along the way, you will cover essential topics like databases and querying, API architecture, database migrations, REST, CRUD, creating a testing environment, password hashing and route authorization via JWTs. By completing the exercises and course content, students will gain the knowledge to create a secure, well organized API from scratch and learn skills JavaScript developers use every day.

Lesson 1

Introduction to Building APIs with Postgres and Express

Welcome to the very beginning of the APIs with Postgres course! In this lesson we will kick things off by talking about the course contents and requirements, and all get on the same page with APIs.

Lesson 2

Databases and SQL

This lesson will focus solely on databases. We'll cover various types of databases, each with their own strengths and then hone our attention in on SQL and the relational database Postgres.

Lesson 3

Create an API with a PostgreSQL connection

You know some Postgres and Node. This lesson is all about getting them to talk to each other. We will cover many vital web development concepts and create a clean and dependable API structure.

Lesson 4

Create an API with Express

Making the data in our database accessible to the outside world is the whole job of our API. In this lesson we cover the libraries and logic needed to make our API able to respond to outside requests.

Lesson 5

Authentication and Authorization in a Node API

No API is complete without offering adequate protection and privacy. This lesson is all about industry standard methods for protecting information and requiring authorization for private pages

Lesson 6

SQL for advanced API functionality

Now that you've seen the bigger picture for utilizing Postgres and Node to create an API, we circle back around to explore some new Postgres syntax and apply it in the API.

Lesson 7 • Project

Build A Storefront Backend

Imagine yourself as a developer at a small company where you and your coworker are building a shopping app. Your task is to use the skills and knowledge from this course to create the API.

Course 4 4 weeks

Angular Fundamentals

Lesson 1

Foundations of Angular Development

Discover what Angular is, and how it can be used to build dynamic web applications. You'll also learn about the structure of this course, as well as some tools to help you become successful.

Lesson 2

Angular Overview

Explore the Angular CLI, a powerful tool that developers use to build Angular applications from the command line. Leveraging the Angular CLI, you'll also generate your first components and modules.

Lesson 3


Take a deep dive into the building blocks of an Angular application's user interface. Discover templates, the component lifecycle, events, and the communication and navigation between components.

Lesson 4

Libraries & Services

Create reusable services to contain an application's non-UI business logic. Extend your applications with the use of third-party libraries and other dependencies.

Lesson 5


Fetch data asynchronously using HTTP, and render it in your application. You'll also collect and validate input from your users with template-driven forms.

Lesson 6 • Project

My Store

Build a fully-functional Angular project to show off your new skills. The MyStore project covers everything you've learned about components, modules, services, HTTP, and user input.
