Andrei Neagoie is the instructor of the highest rated Development courses on Udemy as well as one of the fastest growing. His graduates have moved on to work for some of the biggest tech companies around the world like Apple, Google, Amazon, JP Morgan, IBM, UNIQLO etc… He has been working as a senior software developer in Silicon Valley and Toronto for many years, and is now taking all that he has learned, to teach programming skills and to help you discover the amazing career opportunities that being a developer allows in life.

Having been a self taught programmer, he understands that there is an overwhelming number of online courses, tutorials and books that are overly verbose and inadequate at teaching proper skills. Most people feel paralyzed and don’t know where to start when learning a complex subject matter, or even worse, most people don’t have $20,000 to spend on a coding bootcamp. Programming skills should be affordable and open to all. An education material should teach real life skills that are current and they should not waste a student’s valuable time.   Having learned important lessons from working for Fortune 500 companies, tech startups, to even founding his own business, he is now dedicating 100% of his time to teaching others valuable software development skills in order to take control of their life and work in an exciting industry with infinite possibilities.

Andrei promises you that there are no other courses out there as comprehensive and as well explained. He believes that in order to learn anything of value, you need to start with the foundation and develop the roots of the tree. Only from there will you be able to learn concepts and specific skills(leaves) that connect to the foundation. Learning becomes exponential when structured in this way.

Taking his experience in educational psychology and coding, Andrei’s courses will take you on an understanding of complex subjects that you never thought would be possible.

Now, Adam aims to instil his students with his love for learning and development, while helping them achieve real world success that extends far beyond the completion of his courses.

Adam walks the walk when it comes to building applications that are secure, scalable, and performant and he is going to share his expertise with you to show you how real world systems are built. He understands what it’s like to go from “hello world” to large scale production deployments and promises to take you on that very same journey. Courses should teach practical skills that are current and should lay a foundation for a future in this incredible and exciting industry. And, having started as a self-taught developer, Adam knows the overwhelming feeling of not knowing where to begin, and the importance of learning from the best available sources.

Drawing from his deep experience, Adam’s courses will show you that you don’t need to spend tens of thousands of dollars to take your flourishing skills into the real world and make a difference.

See you inside the course!

    Best NodeJS Course Available in Udemy Platform. In this course You will learn about how to think like a software developer and what will be your approach to make big projects, from where to start, what steps to follow. Adam is a great Instructor and very helpful, If you get stuck anywhere he will always be there to help you. Basic Javascript knowledge is must before doing this course.

    The course is fairly good in general, but it has its flaws.

    For example, in section 14: Node Security + Authentication, authentication is implemented in a separate sample project and not in the main NASA project. That’s disappointing. And only social sign-in with Oauth and Google is demonstrated. I would have liked to learn traditional sign-in, i.e. non social sign-in. Despite that section being more than four hours where the lecturer is really trying to explain authentication, social sign-in and sessions, it’s difficult to grasp. So I’ll need to look elsewhere to really learn about it.

    That’s one example out of a few. On the other hand all courses have flaws. Despite the few flaws I consider the course good in general and worth going for.

    Overall, it is a very good course. It contains a lot of examples showcasing integration patterns between native node http server, Express, Apollo, Graphql.js, and Instructor touches on many topics avoiding unnecessary repetitiveness. Good intro into CI/CD flows, fundamentals of GraphQL and Sockets, as well as testing with jest.
    As some reviewers mentioned, the pace is sometimes too slow and the tone of the instructor’s voice tends to kind of monotone, which makes it a bit harder to focus. But it my opinion these are just minor flaws.

  6. Ahmed Adel Hanafy

    When I bought this course, I gave it a 5/5, but I did not feel I could apply for a job and be a backend developer,

    I took this course because of Andréi. I trust his courses. But in this course, he will not explain anything, like he said which is a lie.
    why you say something you will not do it?

    This course does not cover any real-world situations. For example, signup, login, logout, password update, password reset,

    How to update data at the same time, like a user buying a product and leaving a rating. So how do I add this rating to the product using Mongo Aggregate? using mongo middlware.

    How can I use authenticate and authorise?
    Authentication means once a user logs in, he can change anything in his account, like data or buy a product.

    “Autorized” means once the user is authenticated, he is like an admin. He can delete products or create them, but a normal user can not.
    These things you will not learn.

    How to connect two shemas For example, if a user has posted a post how to connect them, how to show the user’s profile with all his posts? How to send emails and how to use Mongo populate and virtuals These things are essential to being a backend developer.

    As a back end, you must understand how to manage all of this staff and much more.
    This course does not cover any of that.
    The Nasa project is just about to get launches and planets. That is, it is just getting data.

    For the authentication part, just use Google to access the app, but how can I use it to give users permissions like this user just a user
    And this user is an admin and can perform some actions like creating a product, but a normal user cannot.

    You will not learn anything from this authentication part.
    If you ever thought you could make something like any small api, you can not.

    After this course, I took another 3 courses on Udemy to be able to do all of that.

    The best thing about this course is Adam Odziemkowski. He will teach you the best architecture ever.How to architect your app like a professional? Adam will teach you that. He is an amazing backend developer.I like him a lot.

    My only problem with this course is that it is poor and with Andréi, because he said this course is all you need to work, but this is a lie.

    If you apply to a company that gives you a simple task, like a small app, in which a user can create an account, and, once he creates it, you send a token to his email. Once he verifies it, he can log in. With a very simple task like that, you will not be able to do it. Wow, I am sad.

    However, if you are a beginner who will be taking many node JS courses, I recommend that you take this course because Adam will show you how to architect your API like a professional. I took another 3 courses, but their architecture cannot be compared with Adam’s architecture. Really, Adam is the best.

    Finally, one message to Andréi: I hope you delete this course from UDEMY and recreate it using real-world projects like e-commerce api, bookings api, or social medai api, or something like that, because other courses here did that and I took them to be able to do these big projects, and I can do any project I want, unlike your course, when I took it I could not do anything.

    If you want to learn A LOT about Node.js, this is by far the best option.
    I started not knowing nothing and I’m leaving this course with great knowledge! Thank you Andrei!

    I’ve taken a few TMZ courses to build up my JS skillset to the point where this course ame quite naturally. I enjoyed seeing another point of view in how to structure code, combine client & server into a single app, etc. I especially like how the instructor integrated testing throughout the course – most just have it as a single topic they arely revisit. My only issue was the lack of balance when it comes to using certain, mainly big tech-supplied features. There are a number of reasons to NOT use cloud-based solutions, or other olutions provided by big tech – they are not a panacea; would have been nice to at least hear some cons rather than all glowing pros, though I do understand why they would be taught in such a course.

    Course is fantastic. Pros: very wide coverage and practical tips (sorely missed in many other courses), explanations are clear and concise. Con: NASA client seems outdated.

    It was great, i love that it has appendices of some extra topics. I would have love to have more complex applications in Node and some examples on how to set up a virtual host or how to set up the application in AWS but with port 80.

    A good course bor begginers/intermediate. Sometimes the teacher could have maden shorter explanations instead of taking to long to explain something. The security part he exposes a lot of concepts, but it needed a little more hands on activities.
    In general it is worth to get this course.
