Yo ninjas, welcome to your very first Node JS tutorial for beginners. In this Node JS tutorial I’ll introduce to what exactly Node is all about, why we’d use it and the technologies you’ll need to be familiar with to get started.

In a nutshell, Node JS lets us run JavaScript on a computer / server, so with it we can create dynamic web applications in JavaScript from start to finish, without the need to learn another language.

  8. Hey! Great tutorial!
    I was wondering if you always need to end a function with a semicolon when declaring it in a var like you did in line 6. It just seemed odd for me.
    Keep it up!

  9. Hi, Thanks for the tutorial! Just a small thing though.

    I've completed implementing of mongo (had to add some more stuff because of deprecation like useMongoclient and bluebird promise) but now the reloading of the page suddenly doesn't work.

    The data is stored and deleted from the database as it should be but I have to manually reload the page. Am i missing something?

    Thanks a lot!

  10. I really like the way you explain. you are a great teacher and of course all you tutorials are the best on youtube pls keep up the good work

  18. When my boss instructed me to shift from PHP to Node, I was really worried about that where i can find a clear resource to get clear picture about how Node works and all its stuff in the very short time… Thank God!
