- Find learning materials that teach the basics of Node. One good resource is by visiting our “resources” section for Node and looking at each of the “beginner” resources.
- Install Node and npm on your local machine. Make sure you are comfortable with the command line which will make running your applications a lot easier.
- Start creating small projects or apps by following tutorials, for example a basic web server for your personal webpage.
- By the intermediate stage, you need to start understanding not just how to use classes but how they work. Looking into concepts like functional programming and Object-Oriented Programming will help you better understand the language as a whole.
- Visit our “resources” section for Node and review each of the “intermediate” resources.
- In your free time, look at more advanced topics such as function closures which will help you get a stronger grasp of the language as a whole.
- Start designing more advanced projects such as the backend for a chatroom. When it comes to project ideas, the only limit is your creativity.
- By this stage, you should be very familiar with if not a master of documentation. You should be able to comfortably review the documentation for various unknown functions to quickly and easily get a grasp for what they do.
- Start focusing on optimization and performance. The goal is not just to code something that works, but something that works both correctly and efficiently.
