The Linux Foundation and OpenJS Foundation have launched a new, free online course on the edX platform, Introduction to Node.js.
The course is designed for front-end or backend developers who would like to become more familiar with the fundamentals of Node.js and its most common use cases.
Topics covered include how to rapidly build command line tools, mock RESTful JSON APIs and prototype real-time services.
“By immersing yourself in a full-stack development experience, this course helps bring context to Node.js as it relates to the web platform, while providing a pragmatic foundation in building various types of real-world Node.js applications,” said an official blog post.
“At the same time, the general principles and key understandings introduced by this course can prepare you for further study towards the OpenJS Node.js Application Developer (JSNAD) and OpenJS Node.js Services Developer (JSNSD) certifications,” it added.
Enrollment is now open for the course.
