A4CE WORKSHOP LAB: Getting Started with Node.js for IBM i Developers

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Do you want to see what value Node.js can bring to your business, but don't know where to get started? Are you tired of tutorials that assume you have lots of prior knowledge and treat important concepts as black boxes?

In the opening hours of this session, we will teach you how to use JavaScript, cover the important aspects of Node.js, and how to develop your first project with Express.js, a popular web application framework. From there we will cover important tools for Enterprise-level Node.js such as TypeScript, a type-safe language useful for developing more robust applications.

Finally, we will demonstrate the power of Loopback, a highly-extensible framework by IBM that excels at quickly generating APIs that connect back-end services to requests. We will teach Node.js in terms that RPG developers are familiar with, and demonstrate why Node.js is a perfect match for doing business on your IBM i.
