NOTE: This video covers Express 2

It’s Part 2 of Full Stack Node.js!

In Part 1 we started building a real-time menu system for a pie shop.

In this 80 minute conclusion, we continue our deep dive into Node.js, the Express web framework, Mocha tests, the CoffeeScript language, and Socket.io real-time push.

You’ll learn dozens of tips from that you won’t find anywhere else!

Topics covered:

  • Build a model to access the Redis database
  • Write simple unit tests
  • Use namespaced routes to organize URLs and code
  • Write view helper methods to consolidate logic
  • Protect routes for administrative access
  • Use and write middleware
  • Use metaprogramming to build a state machine
  • Bundle client-side assets
  • Send events to a client with socket.io

Available as part of a PeepCode Unlimited subscription (including streaming on our iOS app!) Business plans are also available.


Assumes basic knowledge of JavaScript. It will also help if you’re comfortable with CoffeeScript.
