What you will build/learn

This Codelab includes concepts/tools explanation and code snippets. To keep it simple, I have tried my best to explain things in the easiest way possible. Also, I have added some GIFs so that you can see those snippets in action.

Scope & Preferred for: 

This Codelab has been designed especially for those who are just beginning with Node and have some confusion about buzz words like npm, npx, node etc. 

Things you will learn

What is:

  • Node.js
  • NPM
  • Yarn 
  • NPX

Tools you will require

  • A computer/laptop with an internet connection. 


Wrapping Up

So, that's it. There is much more to learn about Nodejs and its tools but if you are just beginning with then you don't have to worry about it at all. You will definitely learn more gradually. Always remember, it was the tortoise who won the race 🤓. 

What's next?

You can follow more Node.js related codelabs on Commudle or any series on Youtube/Udemy. There are many free good resources out there. Not to mention, there are tons of frameworks and can be confusing if you are just starting with Nodejs. So, I recommend you to start with Restify. Its an easy framework and has simple snippets. Then you move to more fully fledge frameworks like Nest, Sails, Loopback etc. 

So, that's it. Feel free to mention your feedback/doubts or anything in comments down below. I ❤️ talking to fellow developers. Also, don't forget to ⭐ this Codelab if you liked it. You can find me on Twitter at @InsaneNaman.
