New training gives a deep dive into Node.js Services Development

By October 20, 2020Announcement, Blog, Training

Course provides requisite knowledge to develop services on Node.js, and helps prepare for OpenJS Node.js Services Developer Certification

Today, with the Linux Foundation, OpenJS Foundation is excited to offer yet another new training course, LFW212 – Node.js Services Development, as part of our growing Node.js Training and Certification Program

This is an exciting step as Node.js is one of the most popular JavaScript frameworks in the world powering hundreds of thousands of websites, including implementations from Google, IBM, Microsoft and Netflix. Individual developers and enterprises use Node.js to power many of their most important web applications, making it essential to maintain a stable pool of qualified talent.

Who should take this training?

LFW212 will help those developers on their way to a senior level get to the next step by demonstrating their Node.js knowledge and skills, in particular how to use Node with frameworks to rapidly and securely compose servers and services. 

Specifically, this course covers Node core HTTP clients and servers, web servers, RESTful services and web security essentials.

What will I learn?

By taking this course, you will learn how to build RESTful JSON services that are secure and straightforward to maintain and will prepare you for some of the most common Node.js roles in the industry today. The course also prepares you to take the OpenJS Node.js Services Developer (JSNSD) certification. A bundled offering including access to both the training course and certification exam is also available.

To best prepare for this course, students should be familiar with the concepts covered in the OpenJS Node.js Application Developer (JSNAD) certification. To brush up on your Node.js application development skills, we recommend you complete the LFW211 – Node.js Application Development course before attempting LFW212.
