Node.js is taking the world by storm and developers can no longer afford to avoid it. Nor should you want to! Writing JavaScript went from ugh to awesome thanks to things like ES6 and TypeScript. If you're a node noob, this is the session for you. I'll start with the simplest terms and help you climb on top of all of the important concepts. We'll write some practical code that makes sense, look at some fun productivity shortcuts, and then imagine the kinds of apps there are to write in the future! In this session you'll learn… • What is Node.js • What kinds of apps it should and shouldn’t be used for • How to install and use Node.js • The REPL • Hello world • Packages and modules • Node tooling FTW!
