NodeJS - The Complete Guide (MVC, REST APIs, GraphQL, Deno)

Join the most comprehensive Node.js course on Udemy and learn Node in both a practical as well as theory-based way.

This course was updated to also include sections on Deno.js - in addition to more than 30 hours of content on Node.js.

Node.js is probably THE most popular and modern server-side programming language you can dive into these days.

Node.js developers are in high demand and the language is used for everything from traditional web apps with server-side rendered views over REST APIs all the way up to GraphQL APIs and real-time web services. Not to mention its applications in build workflows for projects of all sizes.

This course will teach you all of that.  From scratch with zero prior knowledge assumed. Though if you do bring some knowledge, you'll of course be able to quickly jump into the course modules that are most interesting to you.

Here's what you'll learn in this course:

  • Node.js Basics & Basic Core Modules

  • Parsing Requests & Sending Responses

  • Rendering HTML Dynamically (on the Server)

  • Using Express.js

  • Working with Files and generating PDFs on the Server (on-the-fly)

  • File Up- and Download

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

  • Using Node.js with SQL (MySQL) and Sequelize

  • Using Node.js with NoSQL (MongoDB) and Mongoose

  • Working with Sessions & Cookies

  • User Authentication and Authorization

  • Sending E-Mails

  • Validating User Input

  • Data Pagination

  • Handling Payments with Stripe.js

  • Building REST APIs

  • Authentication in REST APIs

  • File Upload in REST APIs

  • Building GraphQL APIs

  • Authentication in GraphQL APIs

  • File Upload in GraphQL APIs

  • Building a Realtime Node.js App with Websockets

  • Automated Testing (Unit Tests)

  • Deploying a Node.js Application

  • Using TypeScript with Node.js

  • Exploring Deno.js

  • And Way More.

Does this look like a lot of content? It certainly is.

This is not a short course but it is the "Complete Guide" on Node.js after all. We'll dive into a lot of topics and we'll not just scratch the surface.

We'll also not just walk through boring theory and some slides. Instead, we'll build two major projects: An online shop (including checkout + payments) and a blog.

All topics and features of the course will be shown and used in these projects and you'll therefore learn about them in a realistic environment.

Is this course for you?

If you got no Node.js experience, you'll love this course because it starts with zero knowledge assumed. It's the perfect course to become a Node.js developer.

If you got basic Node.js experience, this course is also a perfect match because you can go through the basic modules quickly and you'll benefit from all the deep dives and advanced topics the course covers.

Are you an advanced Node.js user? Check the curriculum then. Maybe you found no other course that shows how to use SQL with Node.js. Or you're interested in GraphQL. Chances are, that you'll get a lot of value out of this course, too.


  • NO Node.js knowledge is required at all.

  • NO other programming language knowledge (besides JavaScript, see next point) is required

  • Basic JavaScript knowledge is assumed though - you should at least be willing to pick it up whilst going through the course. A JS refresher module exists to bring you up to the latest syntax quickly

  • Basic HTML + CSS knowledge helps but is NOT required

node js

I am learning node js from few months now and this course covers all all the topics of node.

The course title "the complete node js ..." suits its name!

for me the best course about node js i learn a lot of things , security , mvc , connections with mysql and nosql , orm like mongoose and sequelize, deploy my app in heroku , enviroments variables , i have to say thank for you knowledge and share the other thank you maximilian.

I got most of my knowledge on node js from a web developer bootcamp on udemy.

I take 2 weeks to finish it but I learn node js essentials that allows me to implements it at work immediately.

I am a Php Developer and now switch into the Node Programming and I start learning node js from scratch from udemy, and this tutorial is good for me.

While the course covers a lot of aspects of node js, it also focuses a lot on small things about the store example, which are irrelevant to node or express.

easy to follow

Is also very easy to follow along knowing only the fundamentals, but for questions there is great support from Max and Teaching Assistants (this is a BIG plus).

Very informative and easy to follow along.

Lots of good information, pretty easy to follow along at times, no opportunities to practice late in the course, which would be nice - as that's when it gets much more complex The course covers the depth and breadth of topics related to nodejs with detailed information with clear articulation.

Keep up the good work and greetings from Bavaria^^ Good course its easy to follow, in addition you have plenty of oportunities to pause the video and try to do it yourself and after check how the instructor solve that problem Great course!

However, it is not easy to follow.

You explain everything in plain English and it makes the lectures dead easy to follow along with.

Very easy to follow and it moves along at a nice pace.
