Full Stack JavaScript Developer Nanodegree

via Udacity Nanodegree


You’ll master the skills necessary to become a successful full stack developer. Learn how to build UI and UX, create APIs and server side business logic and develop the persistence layer to store, process and retrieve data.


  • Backend Development with Node.js
    • There are quite a few technologies involved to build the backend of an application that’s enterprise ready. This course introduces the fundamental tools needed to build a basic API in a way that is both scalable, and maintainable. The course will go through working with Node.js and the core modules available, writing TypeScript for developer error reduction, testing with Jasmine to introduce unit testing in a Test Driven Development environment, and working with Express as a framework for building APIs.
  • Creating an API with PostgreSQL and Express
    • This course covers the primary skills required for API development. Students will build a RESTful JSON API with Node and Postgres. Along the way, you will cover essential topics like databases and querying, API architecture, database migrations, REST, CRUD, creating a testing environment, password hashing and route authorization via JWTs. By completing the exercises and course content, students will gain the knowledge to create a secure, well organized API from scratch and learn skills JavaScript developers use every day.
  • Angular Fundamentals
    • In Angular Fundamentals, students will learn the most important and foundational skills for building Single Page Applications (SPAs). You will discover the architecture of an application, explore how to retrieve and flow data throughout an application, and see how applications scale in a maintainable and performant way. Upon completion of the course, you will be able to build new and expand existing Angular applications with new components and features, architect an Angular application for clarity and maintainability while following best practices, and create and use dependencies such as services and third-party libraries to enrich and extend applications.
  • Deployment Process
    • Being able to deploy your own application is a skill that is often overlooked by developers, thus making it a rare and valuable skill to have! This course will teach the necessary knowledge to create your own production environment and automate the deployment of code to it. By building an automated pipeline and scripts students will gain insights into the world of automated deployments that has been revolutionizing how fast companies are able to deliver features to their customers.
