On the database side, we review basic CRUD operations, NoSQL databases, in particular MongoDB and Mongoose for accessing MongoDB from NodeJS. We examine the REST concepts and building a RESTful API. We touch upon authentication and security. Finally we review backend as a service (BaaS) approaches, including mobile BaaS, both open-source and commercial BaaS services. At the end of this course, you will be able to: – Demonstrate an understanding of server-side concepts, CRUD and REST – Build and configure a backend server using NodeJS framework – Build a RESTful API for the front-end to access backend services
