Node.js, Express, MongoDB & More

The Complete Bootcamp 2020

Do you want to build fast and powerful back-end applications with JavaScript? Would you like to become a more complete and in-demand developer?

Then Node.js is the hot technology for you to learn right now, and you came to the right place to do it.

Welcome to the Complete Node.js, Express and MongoDB Bootcamp, your fast track to modern back-end development.

This course is the perfect all-in-one package that will take you from a complete beginner to an advanced, highly-skilled Node.js developer.

Like all my other courses, this one is completely project based. And not just any project: it's a complete, beautiful and feature-rich application, containing both a RESTful API and a server-side rendered website. It's the most fantastic and complete project that you will find in any Node.js course on the internet.

By building this huge project, you will learn all the skills that you need in order to plan, build and deploy your own modern back-end applications with Node.js and related technologies.

(Actually, if you feel like exploring the project, you can do so at And this is only a small part of the project. Log in with "[email protected]" and password "test1234")

After finishing this course, you will:

1) Be building you own fast, scalable and powerful Node.js RESTful APIs or web applications;

2) Truly understand how Node.js works behind the scenes;

3) Be able to work with NoSQL data and model data in real-world situations (a hugely important skill);

4) Know how modern back-end development works, and how all the different technologies fit together (hard to understand from scattered tutorials and videos);

5) Have experience in professionally-used tools and libraries like Express, Mongoose, Stripe, Sendgrid, Atlas, Compass, Git, Heroku, and many more;

6) Have built a complete application, which is a perfect starting point for your own applications in the future.

Please note that this course is NOT for absolute web development beginners, so you should already be familiar with basic JavaScript. NO back-end experience required though.

It's an absolutely full-packed, deep-dive course with over 40 hours of content.

Since this is the "Complete Node.js Bootcamp", the course is crammed with tons of different technologies, techniques, and tools, so that you walk away from the course as a complete Node.js developer.

That's why the course turned out to be over 40 hours long. But if that sound like too much for you, don't worry, there are videos or entire sections that you can safely skip.

Here is exactly what you're gonna learn:

  • Fundamentals of Node.js, core modules and NPM (Node Package Manager)

  • How Node.js works behind the scenes: event loop, blocking vs non-blocking code, event-driven architecture, streams, modules, etc.

  • Fundamentals of Express (Node.js framework): routing, middleware, sending responses, etc.

  • RESTful API design and development with advanced features: filtering, sorting, aliasing, pagination

  • Server-side website rendering (HTML) with Pug templates

  • CRUD operations with MongoDB database locally and on the Atlas platform (in the cloud)

  • Advanced MongoDB: geospatial queries, aggregation pipeline, and operators

  • Fundamentals of Mongoose (MongoDB JS driver): Data models, CRUD operations, data validation, and middleware

  • Advanced Mongoose features: modeling geospatial data, populates, virtual populates, indexes, etc.

  • Using the MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture

  • How to work with data in NoSQL databases

  • Advanced data modelling: relationships between data, embedding, referencing, and more

  • Complete modern authentication with JWT: user sign up, log in, password reset, secure cookies, etc.

  • Authorization (user roles)

  • Security: best practices, encryption, sanitization, rate limiting, etc.

  • Accepting credit card payments with Stripe: Complete integration on the back-end and front-end

  • Uploading files and image processing

  • Sending emails with Mailtrap and Sendgrid

  • Advanced error handling workflows

  • Deploying Node.js application to production with Heroku

  • Git and GitHub crash course

  • And so much more.

Why should you learn Node.js and take this course?

If you want to learn Node.js and modern back-end development, then there is no doubt that this course is for you.

It's the biggest Node.js course on the internet, it has by far the most complete course project, and offers the most in-depth explanations of all topics included.

And even if you already know some Node.js, you should still take this course, because it contains subjects that are not covered anywhere else, or not in the same depth.

But maybe you're not yet convinced that Node.js really is the right technology for you to learn right now?

Well, first, Node.js will allow you to use your JavaScript skills to build applications on the back-end. That itself is a huge gain, which makes your full-stack development process so much easier and faster.

Plus, popularity and opportunities for Node.js are off the charts. It's a modern, proven and reliable technology, used by tech giants (and 6-figure-salary-paying-companies) like Netflix, PayPal, Uber, and many more.

Node.js really is what you should invest your time in, instead of outdated technology like PHP.

In summary, if you already know JavaScript, learning Node is the logical next step for you. It will make you a better, more versatile and complete developer, which will ultimately boost your opportunities in the job market.

And I created this course to help you do exactly that. It really is the course I wish I had when I was first learning back-end development with Node.js and all related technologies.

And this is what you get by signing up today:

  • Lifetime access to 40+ hours of HD quality videos. No monthly subscription. Learn at your own pace, whenever you want;

  • All videos are downloadable. Learn wherever you want, even without an internet connection.

  • Friendly and fast support in the course Q&A whenever you have questions or get stuck;

  • Lots of small challenges are included in the videos so you can track your progress.

real world in 10 reviews

its a complete course and very close to real world scenarios!!!

This was a top of the line course on Node and server side ecosystem, with all the real world bells and whistles that any real world Node back-end developer should know how to use.

It goes beyond the basics and exposes the student to many real world problems.

As always Jonas does yet another high quality course with real world app and not some "TODO APP" examples.

It uses modern tech and mixes real world application within a fun, all inclusive setting that makes learning not only fun, but really easy.

You can 'digest' difficult concept with real world application and project.

Hope it will help in upcoming projects to solve real world problems.

I like real world project in this course Yes, absolutely.

step by step in 5 reviews

All concepts are explained step by step in pretty clear way (at least clear enough for me), they build slowly on top of each other as the app progressing.

Amazing step by step instruction.

This is the best course I bought on Udemy, the lesson takes you step by step with clear explanation!

web development in 7 reviews

Trying to learn about web development in order to make a career change while also working 60 hours a week means that you don't have time for courses where things are not well explained.

Jonas is one of the best teachers in Udemy, I have taken all of his courses and the amount of knowledge I have now is stunning comparing when I started to study web development, this Node course is full of real life examples, and now I can make my own projects using these technologies, also his user interfaces always are very good ?

Really opened my mind to new technologies in the back-end and front-end web development.

I have got lots of knowledge about web development from Jonas.

Very detailed and engaging and has enabled me to write better reusable code Jonas is great but I'm not sure web development is for me This course was perfect.

Jonas is among the top online instructors for web development that I have found anywhere.

best practices in 7 reviews

New techniques and ways to do stuff with NodeJs as well as best practices, so even for improving your NodeJs skills, this course is the one ;) Excellent course!

So many amazing techniques, best practices, stuff under the hood, I can't give it enough praise.

It's full of data, technical skills and best practices that I can learn and apply in my projects.

* As usual, best practices are followed and the code is organised into different files and folders which is absolutely neat.

I really appreciate that best practices were observed.

In my opinion, this course really was a charm for me both personally or professionally, Jonas explains very well in all aspects and it teaches you from the basics to using best practices to limit the use of api, avoid nosql, xss injections and many other things.

own project in 6 reviews

By the end, you have a beautiful project with a lot of code that can be used as a template for your own project.

I actually plan to go through the whole course again, substituting in my own project.

Very complex, but with so many practical tipps that you can use for your own projects.

However since Node and the sections in this course can be used in a myriad of ways it would be nice to learn them standalone to then be able to compose your own project.

I recommend to everyone, and the project you build in this course will give you all you need so you can build your own projects.

Sometimes I could build an tutorial example but could not translate it to my own project etc.
