An excellent resource for anyone learning Node. Perhaps not the complete Node guide that you'll need to become a professional Node developer, but a decent place to start or practice your skills.
This course is a series of hands-on workshops built entirely inside Node, for free. All you need is a command line and a text editor.
The course is comprised of workshoppers, which are a series of increasingly complicated challenges exploring a particular feature of Node. The workshoppers are typically tackled in a NodeSchool meetup, with mentors, but you’re free to do them remotely on your own.
The workshops are fairly simple. Just a series of instructions and a couple hints. The workshops are tested and graded.
The offering is a bit dated, and a bit light on some of the more advanced features of Node. But if you’re looking to get started with Node, and you want a purely hands-on experience, this is a decent option. You can supplement with the MDN documentation on Node and Express, or use the workshoppers to supplement a video course.
