Description

Welcome to “MERN Stack Front To Back”. In this course, we will build an in-depth full stack social network application using Node.js, Express, React, Redux and MongoDB along with ES6+. We will start with a blank text editor and end with a deployed full stack application. This course includes…

  • Building an extensive backend API with Node.js & Express
  • Protecting routes/endpoints with JWT (JSON Web Tokens)
  • Extensive API testing with Postman
  • Integrating React with our backend in an elegant way, creating a great workflow
  • Building our frontend to work with the API
  • Using Redux for app state management
  • Creating reducers and actions for our resources
  • Creating many container components that integrate with Redux
  • Testing with the Redux Chrome extension

Creating a build script, securing our keys and deploy to Heroku using GitThis is NOT an “Intro to React” or “Intro to Node” course. It is a practical hands-on course for building an app using the incredible MERN stack. I do try and explain everything as I go so it is possible to follow without React/Node experience but it is recommended that you know at least the basics first.

Who is the target audience?

  • Anyone that wants to learn how to build and deploy a full stack MERN application
