Node University Courses

NodeU offers courses on full stack JavaScript. Not just Node but the whole thing: React for UI, Cloud, AWS and Docker for DevOps, MongoDB for database, Express for APIs and many other topics.

This is just a beginning. New courses, webinars, books and other content will be added every month.

The benefits of being a premium Node University member are obvious with the list of courses available growing every week. If Node and full stack JavaScript is your cup of tea, then look no further—enroll now.

Common Objections

  • It's too expensive. Yes. It cost money but you might be missing on a bigger pie—the opportunity cost. Even more so. You might put your career and job security in danger by not learning the modern practices.
  • I'll register later. Tomorrow never comes. There will always be new things on your agenda in the future. Enroll now. Avoid procrastination.
  • There's no enough interesting courses for me. Node University expand with new courses every 2-4 weeks. Premium members have more vote weight and can propose topics for new courses.

If you tried to learn something new in your life, then you probably encountered at least one of the problems:

  • Too much information: YouTube, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Udemy... how to find the best experts without being tricked by fake reviews?
  • Too little information: Hours of searching on Google and Stackoverflow and you still can't find an answer, advice or solution
  • Poor format: Outdated and incomplete docs written in such incomprehensible language that you might think authors of libraries on purpose don't want any one to use them; inconsistent blog posts and ad-infested YouTube videos—all lead to wasted time, flow interrupt and distraction

How much do you value your time? Avoid spending it on poor resources. Time is not replaceable. Your mental energy either.

Listen to what other Azat and Node.University students are saying:

Hello Mr Azat,

Thank you for being an awesome instructor and writer. I have maybe 5 books that you wrote and now I have 3 or 4 courses at Node University. I am glad that I discovered your courses. They are easy and now I work with Node which I like a lot!


Felipe Santiago.

Or this fellow who joined paid mentorship (premium plan):

Hello again,

Thank you for the course, really like to watch a skilled and acknowledged programmer instead a kind of random guy who just make course and have little to no idea. Your course is great because covers many aspects and it's complete. Good work. After I signed up for your mastermind and mentorship, I got a promotion in just 2 months!



PS. I wont spam you anymore on this email.

The class on NodeJS was incredible. It was intensive, but at the end I had so many questions answered and was able to accomplish so much more than what I had tried to teach myself in the past 7 days.

– Joshua T.

At first, Express.js reminded me a lot of manual routing when building a Sinatra application in Ruby, but once you moved onto middleware and passing references, it clarified how to structure syntactically in Javascript, which was confusing to me initially. The entire Express.js pdf is something I am still studying and it is very helpful.

– Chris B.

Azat, I’ve been a fan for a couple years now. I’ve read four of your books and finally saw you talk in person last year. I was so stoked to make it into the soft launch and ripped thru your Express Foundation course over the weekend. Keep up the great work!

– Richard S.

So if you value your time and want to learn Node from the expert, join a community and get coaching, then Node.University is for you.

But that's not all. There are more testimonials (copies from my LinkedIn).

Azat is a great professional in Javascript / Node.JS development, as well as an excellent tech mentor.
He has extraordinary abilities in coaching other engineers and takes them to the next level of web-development. His projects, as NodeProgram ( and Node University (, has a very detailed content related to React, Node, and JavaScript. As an engineer, I have enjoyed having Azat’s books and his video lectures on my favorite lists. Looking forward to learning something new again with Azat in the future.

– Alexey Bushnev, Senior Software Engineer at Apple, Cuppertino, CA

Azat infused his workshop with an impressive breadth and depth of expertise on topics ranging from the myriad reasons why Node.js is taking over enterprise to the intricacies of the React lifecycle, while always making sure to communicate both verbally and visually in an accessible way for all of the attendees, making the 2-day event not only incredibly useful, but really fun too:)

– Claire Hsu, Software Engineer at Hack Reactor, San Francisco, CA

Azat has been a great resource in my journey to learn JavaScript, in particular, NodeJS. He is a great communicator and has been a great mentor and coach.

I've joined his Node University and have found it very helpful, I can recommend it to anyone new to the Node eco-system.

– Tony BrownC, Developer at PTC, Boston, MA

Why I Created Node University

In my career, I have personally experienced and witnessed all the challenges to coding.

I’ve started a job and found the previous team left zero documentation for me. I’ve worked problems alone, wishing I had someone to talk to about it. I’ve lost interest in projects due to lack of progress.

And I’ve seen what happens when even talented coders don’t stay on top of the latest advancements. Node.University is my answer to all of those challenges and more.

The best resources.

The best guidance.

The best freedom to learn the way you want...

So why should you trust me as your instructor and Node expert?

Good question!

Frequently Asked Questions

What tier should I choose?
The Mastermind tier provides the best value but if you are serious about taking your career to a new level, consider investing into Expert Mentorship.
Is this only for Node? What about front-end tech like React? Angular?
Yes. This service will have (and maybe already has) front-end materials as well as courses on HTML, CSS, Computer Science and more! You can submit your requests to new content.
Is this a real accredited university? Will I get a diploma?
No. This is not a real brick and mortar university like Stanford or Harvard. Node.U is an online school and we don't issue diplomas at this time.
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish. That's the benefit of online courses—you learn at your OWN pace. You don't have to watch a lecture if it has already familiar to you material. Just skip it or play on 2x. You can rewind/replay other videos which you didn't quite grasp the first time. Try doing it in a live class!
How long do I have access to the course?
If this is a premium membership course, you will have access to it as long as you are member. If it's a free course, then you will have access as long as Node University is around. Check out our premium membership to support Node University and enroll into this course.
