Node with React

Note: This course assumes you've got the basics of React and Redux down. Check out my course 'Modern React with Redux', its the perfect preparation.

Go beyond the basics of React and Redux. This course will teach you to combine the ultra-popular React, Redux, Express, and MongoDB technologies to build a fullstack web application.

Advanced Deployment? You will learn it. Billing/Payments? Included. Handling Email? Of course.

What Will You Build?

All of my courses are 'learn-by-doing': no boring endless lectures with Powerpoints, only live, interactive coding examples. In this course we'll build one massive web application that profiles the advanced features of React, Redux, Express, and Mongo. By putting each concept into a real app, you'll get a better idea of when to use each unique and powerful feature.

Build a large feedback-collection app. This mega app will include the full gamut of features, including everything from authentication to email handling. You'll learn how to build an app that can be used to send mass emails to a big list of users for the purpose of collecting feedback. It's my goal to ensure you understand each feature we build into this app so you can apply them to your own personal or professional projects in the future.

Here's what we'll learn:

  • Learn the architectural considerations of building a full stack app
  • Connect a front-end Create-React-App server to a NodeJS and Express backend
  • Communicate data from your Mongo database to your React application
  • Understand how to route user requests on the front end with React Router and on the backend with Express
  • Build reusable user inputs with Redux Form, complete with navigation
  • Handle credit cards and receive payments from your users with Stripe
  • Engage your users with automated emails
  • Enhance authentication flows in your app with Google OAuth authentication
  • Separate production and development resources with advanced API key handling techniques
  • Educate your users on how to use your app with custom build landing pages

I've built the course that I would have wanted to take when I was learning to build fullstack apps. A course that explains the concepts and how they're implemented in the best order for you to learn and deeply understand them.

step by step

Some stuff requires a small amount of tweaking due to small API/libraries changes, but they made it extremely easy to fix every problem by adding text sections with step by step guides on how to fix and update to a working solution.

I did learn a lot of very useful concept from step by step.

I like the course because Stephen gave a really practical example as usual and took you step by step building it.

Stephen carefully explains the reasons for his architecture decisions for the application and includes lots of diagrams to help you step by step.

I think it is really good explained and it is going step by step so it is easy to get all needed details.

great course that i have never seen before, very useful for those who want to improve full-stack skill especially javascript, many thanks to Stephen Grider who has walked me through step by step in this cause, i actually appreciate him.

This course literally walks you through step by step set up of a Node React app from start to finish!

Great course just drags on and it would be nice to have a step by step github so we can review code as we go along!

Step by step approach.

Good course to understand React, step by step lessons.

This course really helps me understand how to build a real full-stack web application step by step.

The course progresses in a step by step way so that no matter which level you are at, you will feel comfortable catching up.

Authentication didn't work for me for some reason so the rest of the do not have the same impact as to when I can follow you step by step like I did on the Solidity course where everything worked flawlessly I thought it was a simple and generic node+react course but it's much more.

Teaches everything step by step so that students are easy to follow and understand.

highly recommended

Highly recommended The course was very thorough and I liked how the instructor explained all the process and working of the application in detail.

This course is highly recommended to beginner-mid level React developers who want to know how to integrated React with Node.js, MongoDB.

Highly recommended for anyone who wants a deeper dive in Node / React / MongoDB development.

Great course and highly recommended!

Highly recommended!!!

Highly recommended.

Highly recommended!

Highly recommended – and I will certainly be taking other courses that he offers.

Highly recommended for those who want to learn something with tiny little details.

Highly recommended to anyone willing to learn Full-Stack Web development alongside React.

He also marks those more theoretical videos as "optional" and tells you exactly when he's going to go into detail (and if it's essential knowledge or not) so that you can skip that part of the video if you want to get the project done ASAP (If you're not familiar with React, I recommend you go through the freeCodeCamp curriculum or the Scrimba tutorial first, they are free) Mr. Grider came highly recommended.

Highly recommended so far.

Highly recommended to anyone interested in getting a better understanding of the MERN-stack.

full stack development

Stephen does a great job explaining difficult concepts of the full stack development cycle.

i recommend this course to anyone who want to be involved in full stack development.

This course helped me learn the basics of Full Stack Development.

I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to pursue their career in Full Stack Development Its great !

Overall it is a perfect course if you are new to JS world and want to lean full stack development with JS.

Now I know so many things in full stack development just by going through this course.

Having learned RoR as my first framework but curious about Node.js and Javascript full stack development this was incredibly helpful.

I like this course because I couldn't find a lot of full stack development courses using node and react and i like the way it was put together, however, I think that 25 hours is too much.

Finally an educator that has actually crafted a course that walks the student through the entire process of full stack development.

That being said, if you want to understand full stack development with Node and React, this is definitely the course to engage with.

I find them very useful to understand the underlying principles of full stack development and the interconnection of the different technology stacks.

real world application

Highly recommended for anyone with that already has the basics of React and JavaScript and is looking to create a real world application that can easily be added to their portfolio.

Liked the practical approach in covering most of the real world applications and API integrations.

I knew a little bit of React and Node, but I didn't know how to implement them into a real world application.

Has given me enough of an overview and details to go and build a real world application using the same frameworks.

The whole course builds a real world application, and covers all the essentials you need such as authentication, deployment, and handling state from a backend you create.

I feel like I am learning more on Udemy from these style of courses than my college as these are focused on real world applications and I can see myself creating professional applications based off this course.

The topics covered are very relevant and useful for today's real world applications.

Very easy to understand and very practical to use in real world application development for beginners and professionals alike.

best instructors on udemy

And the Q&A board here feels mildly neglected/abandoned, but I find that happens with even the best instructors on Udemy, as they are constantly under pressure to provide new content.

He is definitely one of the best instructors on Udemy.

Stephen is one of the best instructors on Udemy.

Grider is one of the best instructors on Udemy.

great presenter, covers a fast amount but makes it really approachable and I like the full stack app approach to learning a web tech Stephen Grider is back at it again with another dope course- would say he is one of the best instructors on Udemy for React.JS- beginner friendly and professionals can pick up integrations like OAuth while fast forwarding through the explanations.

fullstack web development

A good introduction to fullstack web development with React and Node that covers plenty of the potential 'gotchas' that one would run into if trying to put all of this together on their own.

The course is very project-centric, but unlike other project based courses (which I love) this one also manages to teach all of the surrounding knowledge for a comprehensive understanding of the subject of Fullstack Web Development.

Thank you for creating this most valuable Fullstack Web Development course.

Porém para um curso chamado Fullstack Web Development faltou um exemplo completo de CRUD.

Even though this course is called "Node with React: Fullstack Web Development" You will not be taught any react in this course.

If you're looking for an in-depth Node with React: Fullstack Web Development course then this is it.

Stephen Grider's courses are thorough, with definitive explanations which prepare you to work comfortably with the technology you are pursuing in this case fullstack web development with node and react plus Everything is explained incredibly well.

behind the scenes

Stephen takes the extra step to explain what is happening behind the scenes.

I really enjoy that the instructor takes the time to explain what is going on behind the scenes in a way that is concise and easy to understand I would highly recommend this course!!

If you're a visual learner and like to know what's going on behind the scenes, this course is the ticket.

At first, I was a bit skeptical about just how much he is attempting to tackle in one course, but he manages to do it all while still going into plenty of detail so that the student can understand what is happening behind the scenes.

Diagrams and detailed explanation of everything that's going on behind the scenes!

Stephen is an amazing instructor who will how you exactly what' going on behind the scenes.

Not only showing how to do things, but also explain what happened behind the scenes.

come across

Stephen Grider's courses are some of the best I've come across, really clear and concise explanations for all levels, he has a skill at distilling complex concepts in simple ways, couldn't recommend this any more.

Stephen Grider is the best online teacher I've come across till now.

One potential area for improvement would be to include some content on how to go about debugging so that students are fully empowered to problem solve the issues they come across in their personal projects outside of this course.

Has side effects of understanding small really good topics one would otherwise need to dig to come across .

This is precious knowledge that is difficult to come across since most tutorials focus on one side of the app.

This is one of the best tutorials I have come across.

Stephen is hands down the best teacher I've come across.

I'm great full to come across your course the way your teaching and your technique are highly IQed for beginners and advanced students.

production environment

I especially liked the explanations on how to deal with the differences between a development and production environment.

Plus we learn how to store our source code on GitHub and deploy on a cloud server to simulate a production environment.

it would be great to learn about deployment in depth on a premise base production environment.

I highly recommend this course for anyone who has experience with React and Redux but have experienced difficulty tying everything together in a production environment.

This Stephen Grider class is a good continuation to build up on top of the nanodegree, especially regarding: nodes.js, Express, Passport, OAuth2 authentication, Heroku deployment, management of development & production environment variables, payment through Stripe API, forms, etc.

The course ultimately fails to really demonstrate what Node and React configurations look like in a production environment.

A little skeptical at first about learning something new since I knew a decent amount of express and react/redux, but learned a lot about passport, oauth, and server architecture, as well as development/production environments!

You will learn a lot about every technology listed and more, how to do it securely and efficiently, and how to deploy in a dev and production environment.

Overall, a fantastic course with a fun project that you can directly translate to real world production environments.
