Welcome to the "Enterprise Fullstack JavaScript Developer: Zero to Hero" course. In this course, throughout 5 awesome sections we'll take a look at some of the aspects of modern-day JavaScript development.

Often times I hear people argue about the fact that JavaScript is not ready for the Enterprise. This couldn't be further away from the truth. JavaScript has matured over the years and with the latest version of the language (ECMAScript 2015) along with a superset of the language (TypeScript) it can be used at enterprises as well.

Node.js has gained popularity over the years and it is now trusted by large, multinational, Fortune 500 organisations. We'll go through the basics of Node.js so that you will be familiar with its most exciting parts.

NoSQL database have also evolved and there are some NoSQL database that have true enterprise capabilities. We'll take a look at what makes a NoSQL database an enterprise database.

Furthermore we'll also work with the latest version of Angular to create a cutting edge graphical user interface for our application.
