edX: Building Functional Prototypes using Node.js

 with  Bre’Ana Deen and Kasey Champion

In this course, you'll learn all about back-end web development so that you can turn a basic web app prototype into something that can store live data. We'll cover the basics of Node.js so that you can write JavaScript code to build the back-end of your app, as well as the basics of SQL and SQLite to write queries to work with a database. By the end of this course, you'll have a functional web app prototype that can be accessed on the Web.

  • Distinguish between front-end and back-end within the context of web app development
