In this course you will learn how to develop and deploy full-stack web applications several JavaScript frameworks. You will start by creating backend server-side applications using Node.js and Express. You will then develop a front-end user interface (UI) using ES6 and the React JavaScript library, and deploy your application to the IBM cloud platform.

Node.js is an event-driven JavaScript web application server framework and relies on callback functions to handle network calls in an asynchronous manner. The application you create will employ asynchronous callback functions to act upon network events in the runtime environment.

You will learn how to invoke Web Services, parse with JSON data and integrate with Cloud APIs to add AI capabilities to your application. You will also practice DevOps and GitHub concepts to enable continuous delivery of your application.

This course is ideal for those who want to start a career in Cloud Development or developers who want to update their skills with current Cloud programming technologies and practices.

It is highly recommended that you complete other courses in the IBM Cloud Application Development Foundations Professional Certificate prior to starting this course. The course requires prior basic knowledge of HTML5, JavaScript, DevOps, Git, and fundamental concepts in Cloud programming.

After completing this course you will be able to create modern applications using Cloud Native concepts.
