The path begins with an overview of the core of Node in the Getting Started course, and then goes deep into npm. With this foundation, the path shifts to more practical application for web developers, with coverage of using MongoDB with Node, building web applications with Express, HTTP, and OAuth for authorization.
The courses follow a similar style and structure, so you can be confident of consistent production value even though the courses are taught by different authors who specialize in particular topics.
The courses are short, concise and focused, typically running between 1-3 hours. This makes the courses valuable for ongoing reference.
We particularly like that the courses emphasize real world usage, covering not just how to use features of Node, but why.
In order to use Node professionally, you'll want hands-on practice. Pluralsight's platform includes guided labs, which can give some hands-on practice, but you should also supplement with a real world project on your own system, without step-by-step guidance.
You’ll want to continue with some additional courses to learn topics like testing with Mocha, building secure Node services (especially Cloud-first services), and websockets.

The premium option for learning Node.js for fullstack web development.

Outstanding video training option, with in-depth real-world Node coverage.
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.

Solid option for learning to use Node hands-on.
Our course reviews are conducted by a team of technical professionals, course developers, and lifelong learners.
The lead of this project, Brian Green, has worked in developer education since 2009. He built the content development teams at Pluralsight and Udacity, implementing quality standards and tutorials to improve course quality and working with hundreds of authors to create courseware. Most recently, he built the product team at App Academy. As of writing, he estimates he has spent nearly a year of his life taking or reviewing online courses, on topics ranging from Web Development, Networking, Server Administration, DevOps, Cybersecurity, Machine Learning, and Artificial Intelligence.
