  6. Code: Coding exercises and sample projects explained with video commentary

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.

In short, whatever you need help with in regards to Node and full stack JavaScript, we will have a solution for you!

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!

Try Node University courses today. Profit tomorrow.

Node University is a Time-Saver for Programming Experts

As an expert in programming but a new person to Node, you might want to skip some topics and focus just on certain areas. You can start with back-end track and continue to front-end or start with DevOps and finish with mobile. Learning never stops, right? If we stop learning, we become obsolete and irrelevant in a blink of an eye. Learn full stack JavaScript and Node to stay relevant, for fun and profit. After learning at NodeU, you can do following:

  • Get a better job or earn more in their current position
  • Insure career and job security
  • Work faster and avoid costly mistakes
  • Be the hero that solves your team’s big coding problem
  • Enjoy coding even more than they do now

Time is the most precious resource. You are already earning money but how you can get more time to enjoy your life or become more productive? You can learn new skills and invest in your future!

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.

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:

  1. Front-end Software Engineering - 6 courses
  2. Back-end Software Engineering - 7 courses
  3. Software Engineering Architecture - 6 courses
  4. DevOps Engineering - 5 courses
  5. Mobile Software Engineering - 3 courses

Let's see what courses are in each of the tracks.

👉 Node University Tracks 🏃

Pick you track (what area you want to specialize in), and take courses one by one in the order listed.

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

Node University Certification

Node University certificates are great at showing to potential employers when looking for a new job or to your current boss when asking for a pay raise. NodeU certs quantify your knowledge and look great at your cubicle wall, desk and LinkedIn profile!

Community for Meetings, Discussions and Collaboration

The mission of Node University is to provide premium online education in a fast-changing world of information technology.

It’s a university, not a library. You pay for experience, community and skills, not just the content!

Node University is a safe space to learn—Slack community and monthly webinars.


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 even more testimonials.

"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, 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

"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 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

Sydney, Australia

"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. "

- Divinelove Sam, Student

Lagos state, Nigeria

"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..."

- Felipe Santiago, Freelance Front End Developer

Melbourne, Australia

- Jean Marcel Belmont, Software Engineer at Genesys

Fayetteville, North Carolina, USA

"Your Node.js content had always been a joy to read and was very handy for us implementing test automation with Node. Looking forward to the updated editions."

- Mek Stittri, Engineering Manager at Airware

Mountain View, California, USA

- Greg Kruse, Full-stack Software Engineer at Northwestern Mutual

Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA

"Hello Azat, good afternoon! I'm one big fan about you. Now, I'm saving money for getting your courses in Node university, because in Brazil dollar is very expensive 3x +, and I don't know if you know about here, is complicated! Haha

I'm studying your free courses and there is little time to finish all them.

Thanks a lot."

- Dave Banerjee, Application Developer at State Street

New York, New York, USA

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. Whether it’s community, cutting-edge content, offline viewing, code samples, being able to learn through discussion with peers, or even getting personal mentorship from the experts; we have you covered!

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!
