Node.js Basics | Trailer0:56 with Andrew Chalkley
teacher here at Treehouse.
the server side using the Node.js platform.
Node.js has become my go to for making scalable web applications,
desktop applications and powering robots, too.
Node.js is great for building interactive real time chat applications.
With this example, you can play Gameboy games with any number of people online.
In this course, we'll be creating a couple of command line application that go out to
the Internet and retrieve information and print out the results to the terminal.
These applications are not only fun to build, but they'll be plenty of learning
opportunities that will show you the power of Node.js and
why you'll want to use it in your projects.
Many companies like PayPal, LinkedIn, Netflix, Microsoft and
Uber use Node.js in production.
So it's never been a better time to learn.
