Learn front-end and hybrid mobile development, with server-side support, for implementing a multi-platform solution.
The first two courses in this curriculum cover front-end frameworks: Bootstrap 4 and React. You’ll also learn to create hybrid mobile applications, using the React Native Framework. On the server side, you’ll learn to implement NoSQL databases using MongoDB, work within a Node.js environment and Express framework, and communicate to the client side through a RESTful API.
FRONT-END WEB UI FRAMEWORKS AND TOOLS: BOOTSTRAP
MULTIPLATFORM MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT: REACT NATIVE
SERVER-SIDE DEVELOPMENT WITH NODEJS, EXPRESS AND MONGODB
This course deals with all things server-side. We base the entire course around the NodeJS platform. We start with a brief overview of the Web protocols: HTTP and HTTPS. We examine NodeJS and NodeJS modules: Express for building web servers. On the database side, we review basic CRUD operations, NoSQL databases, in particular MongoDB and Mongoose for accessing MongoDB from NodeJS. We examine the REST concepts and building a RESTful API. We touch upon authentication and security. Finally we review backend as a service (BaaS) approaches, including mobile BaaS, both open-source and commercial BaaS services.
