I really want to learn how to use node.js, but sometimes I feel lost in some complex concepts. I do not know where to learn these concepts and sometimes I wonder if I stopped learning something important before moving on to the node. I have some questions: what are the prerequisites to fully understand node.js? And is it a BackEnd language? (Is it a language? )
Fun fact: node.js is written in 3 languages:
- C (I/O)
- C++ (V8)
Thank you for recomendations, that will help me a lot!
Hey I Think i can help you. I just start learning Node a month ago. I know that all this npm and node modules might me overwhelming for you.
So let me help you :slight_smile :
First of all you have to lay out foundation for Node
So go to The Net Ninja Channel on Youtube and Search for Node Playlist.
Believe me i have researched for more than one month only for resources so you can trust me blindly.
It is a 37 video playlist and in the end you will built a To-Do app on node.
After that search for Art of Node.
It is a github repo which explains all the technical stuff beautifully.
Till now you must have say 40% knowledge of node.
Now go through this article for finding out what you don’t know yet.
This article contains a video that tells you about Asynchronous I/O, Event Loop and stuff.
I have been diving into Node.js lately, and I’ve found this Net Ninja playlist to be extremely helpful. He really breaks it down into simple terms and explains it from the ground up.
Agree. The Net ninja’s playlist of Node is excellent.
