We know that people interested in coding have a broad spectrum of different goals. From starting in the industry to finishing a work project to climbing the career ladder; we pride ourselves on having the content options to help a diverse set of learners.
Node University is All-In-One Solution for Newbies
Node University courses and extra premium benefits such as one-on-one chat with experts will help those who just starting in programming (i.e., newbies to programming) because NodeU has clearly defined tracks such as front-end, back-end and others while focusing on the best, most popular and most used tech stack such as Node, Express, MongoDB, AWS and of course React, and GraphQL.
Avoid suffering through out-dated and boring material on Udemy. Stop watching distracting and incomplete YouTube videos. NodeU is not going to distract you by cat videos and it won't overwhelm you with 50 hour of content (such as some courses on Udacity or Udemy).
When you are just starting, it's very important that you learn and focus on one stack. It must be the best stack for your time and energy! There are too much material out there. Hear the voice of an expert, Azat Mardan, who build production Node apps for millions of users.
- Want to start a career in coding
- Clear path to learning
- Expert voice
Look, we understand that coding is hard. We can’t make it easy, but what we can do is make it EASIER for our students. And if you are strapped on cash, don't worry. This tuituon will pay in no time once you land your first coding gig. I promise that... of course if you act on the aquired knowledge. There's a huge demand for programmer all over the world!

Node University Courses
This is just a beginning. New courses, webinars, books and other content will be added every month.
Node University Tracks
Node University has many courses on different topics ranging from React, ECMAScript, Amazon Web Services, npm and of course Node itself. Every month, we publish new courses and webinars on recent new technologies or just to expand the curriculum.
The problem is where one starts? What courses to take and in what order? How to proceed?
That's why we are putting together this guide. Meet the tracks:
- Front-end Software Engineering - 6 courses
- Back-end Software Engineering - 7 courses
- Software Engineering Architecture - 6 courses
- DevOps Engineering - 5 courses
- Mobile Software Engineering - 3 courses
Let's see what courses are in each of the tracks.
Pick you track (what area you want to specialize in), and take courses one by one in the order listed.

- 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!
Or this fellow who joined paid mentorship (premium plan):
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.
– 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 even more testimonials.
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, California, USA
"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, California, USA
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 Brown, Developer at PTC
Boston, Masachusettes, USA
"A huge thank you for these courses. One of them has become the bible for me - the place place of reference - and I really appreciate everything...
Since you are involving AWS in the NodeUniversity courses - you have solved a huge gap in my skills set... Now that I have more knowledge in AWS, I am being requested to write services to up load and configure CloudFront...
Thank you for such a quick response - you are a life saver."
- Mark Wybrow, Tech Lead at SiteMinder
"One of the things I told people in the middle of my CS undergrad is that they should put their ears to the ground, and assume they will be working on an internet world. I told them many times over to learn that we should all know how to write a REST API, how to get hello world to work on a server, how to set up a simple Digital Ocean / AWS vps, etc. I was routinely ignored, with scoffs and jeers.
The skills that I obtained in self-driven learning, thanks in part to Azat Mardan's materials and Node University, I left college gainfully employed. Why? Because I went beyond, I trained after school, and I did research on several topics at a time"
- Eduardo de Luna, Lead Software Developer at NLW Consulting LLC
Spring, Texas, USA
"I really appreciate the prompt and very helpful reply. Thanks a million times for. I do not work for any company yet. Am a student trying to learn how to code in order to solve the problems of my community. I am from Nigeria. I'm well on my way to becoming a node expert with these quality courses... especially a free course that teaches beginners how to work with nodejs, express,(write API's) and a database. Keep up the good work and thanks again. "

Premium yet Affordable Pricing
How much does a college degree in Computer Science the US cost? Do you think it cost anywhere from $40,000 to $120,000 depending if you go to a community college or an Ivy League top-tier school. You are WRONG! With opportunity cost of not earning an income for a few year while attending the school full-time, the full cost could be as high as $500,000 USD.
What's even worse is that all that money won't guarantee you a better job or a job at all. Most university don't teach Node, React or Amazon Web Services. They are stuck in early 2000 at best if you are lucky and they have Java courses. Most don't even do that and only teach C/C++ or Python. So 1990s! The job market demands full stack developers and companies are happy to pay for this talent. That's why Node University allows to upgrade your skill on-demand in your spare time and do it at a fraction of the cost of legacy universities.
For those who want to learn more and at a faster rate, Node.University provides hassle-free, easy UNLIMITED access to help you meet your personal goals.

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?
Two of Azat's books, Rapid Prototyping with JS and Express.js Guide, were best-sellers on Amazon in their category!
Azat published multiple top selling video courses on Udemy before shifting his focus on growing Node University and providing FREE quality education in tech and IT. One of his courses has over 7,500 students and 4.2/5 star average!
In 2016 alone, Azat spoke at over a dozen of tech conferences including JSConf Iceland, Node Summit, Node Interactive Europe, Node Interactive America, ConFoo, ForwardJS, All Things Open, Great Wide Open and many others.
