VY102G - Developing REST APIs with Node.js


Duration: 2.0 days

This course teaches developers how to create, test, and deploy APIs with Node.js for the IBM Bluemix cloud application platform.

The Node.js runtime environment is a highly scalable server-side application platform. In this course, you learn how to develop REST APIs with Express, a popular web application framework for Node. You design callback functions to handle asynchronous network events. You also install and manage Node features with npm, the packaging manager for Node modules.

You build, test, and deploy the lab exercises in your own workstation, and on your own IBM Bluemix account.
