About the course

Welcome to "MERN Stack Front To Back". In this course we will build an in depth full stack social network application using Node.js, Express, React, Redux and MongoDB along with ES6+. We will start with a blank text editor and end with a deployed full stack application. This course includes

  • Building an extensive backend API with Node.js & Express
  • Protecting routes/endpoints with JWT (JSON Web Tokens)
  • Extensive API testing with Postman
  • Integrating React with our backend in an elegant way, creating a great workflow
  • Building our frontend to work with the API
  • Using Redux for app state management
  • Creating reducers and actions for our resources
  • Creating many container components that integrate with Redux
  • Testing with the Redux Chrome extension

Creating a build script, securing our keys and deploy to Heroku using Git

UPDATE: The entire course was updated to use React Hooks, Async/Await and better overall code.


This is NOT an "Intro to React" or "Intro to Node" course. It is a practical hands on course for building an app using the incredible MERN stack. I do try and explain everything as I go so it is possible to follow without React/Node experience but it is recommended that you know at least the basics first.
