If you are a person who is not picky about a CSS framework and wants to learn how to create enterprise-grade, practical full stack app using new technologies, then this course is for you. I can guarantee you that with this app on your resume, you will definitely land a great job.
This course is NOT FOR ABSOLUTE BEGINNERS. You should have done at least 1 MERN project previously. This course is for someone who wants to get out of his/her comfort zone and build a project which will teach you valuable skills.
Welcome to “MERN Social Media with Socket io for Real time chat and Notifications”.
This is the most complex MERN app you are ever going to create.
(Source Code available to download before every section.)
I am going to explain all the features below but make sure to check the intro video because no matter how much I write, there are so many features in this app, I might miss something. Also all the videos are in 1080p so make sure to turn on the auto mode in video quality settings.
This course includes…
This is one of the most complex apps you are going to build. 13 hours of video content for a single app, which will look great on your resume.
React and NextJs(For Server Side Rendered Pages) for our Frontend and Express with Node on the backend. We are going to use Socket io for Realtime connection between multiple clients for messaging.
Creating complex & interlinked MongoDB Models for storing the info of users, messages they send and receive, their notifications, following and followers of a user,. We are going to store everything in our database.
We are going to show the online users in our app to the logged user just like in any big social network .
Real time chat with multiple users. So no need to refresh the page to check if there is a new message. Everything is going to happen in real time. Also, we are going to play a notification sound when there is a new message.
We are only going to show the posts of the users you are following. So, exactly the same way it happens in big social networks.
We are going to have Realtime Notifications. Whenever someone likes your post or comments on your post or starts following you, a new notification will appear.
Crop Images before uploading to cloudinary.
Infinite Scroll to bring the new posts from the backend automatically on when the user is near the bottom of the page.
Semantic-UI as CSS framework.
Upload Profile Pictures. Also create posts with pictures. We are going to store all the images in CLOUDINARY.
Also, we are going to create a root user. That user can delete any post or delete any comment inside the app.
We are going to display all the info about your Followers and Following. Make sure to check the intro video. I have talked about this in detail there.
Also, we are going to give the user the option to update profile picture or profile info. We are going to have a settings tab, where you can update your password and message popup settings.
I am going to teach you how to populate fields inside MongoDB, I am also going to show you how to interlink the models to each other so that we do not have to store fixed values in every model.
Also, we are going to add the functionality to reset the password. We are going to use NodeMailer & Sendgrid to send the email with the link to the user to reset the password.
At the end we are going to deploy it to HEROKU.
This is the one of the most complex project you are going to create, and it will look really great on your resume. So, what are you waiting for, just enroll in the course and start learning.
You can ask me all the questions in Udemy Q/A.

The best value for money course ever. I've taken other courses in the past, but this one trumps them all. In terms of features and functionality, the instructor has left no stone unturned. Would have paid thrice the asking price if asked.
Amazing. Loved every minute of it. This is a really complex app explained thoroughly and with attention. This course shows how to build an enterprise level app. Also, source code is available before each section, so that helps a lot, helps me to understand the code better.
Geweldig. Ik genoot van elke minuut. Het accent was gemakkelijk te begrijpen. Bovendien is de ondersteuning van de instructeur snel en zijn de antwoorden gemakkelijk te begrijpen. Ik heb al een heleboel nieuwe dingen geleerd over realTime-gegevensoverdracht tussen meerdere klanten. Moeilijk te geloven dat dit de eerste cursus van de instructeur is. Ga zo door!
Erstaunlicher Kurs. Sie müssen darauf achten, dass Sie genau wissen, wie eine App mit MERN STACK entwickelt wird. Dieser Kurs ist nicht zum Erlernen von NodeJS oder ReactJS von Grund auf gedacht. Sie sollten über Grundkenntnisse verfügen, bevor Sie mit diesem Kurs beginnen. Manchmal geht der Ausbilder ein bisschen schnell, aber dennoch ist dieser Kurs weitaus besser als andere.
детальное объяснение. инструкторская поддержка отличная. Реализация уведомлений была отличной. Пожалуйста, продолжайте делать такие курсы.
Bester Kurs da draußen, Erklärung ist ausgezeichnet und gründlich. Auch die Unterstützung durch den Instruktor ist großartig und schnell. Ich habe die Antwort auf jede meiner Fragen innerhalb von 2 Stunden erhalten.
Thanks please make these kinda courses, these are so helpful you don’t know how much i was struggling for that from long time. You made everything easy like Notifications and other things, I would like to say once again thank you & keep connecting with us! ❤️
I wanted to learn how to create Notifications System with MERN stack. Great Course.... Highly recommended
Certainly this course deserves more students.. Deducting half star, becuase sometimes instructor goes a little bit fast while creating layout. Other than that, this course deserves more recognition
It is my first course on Udemy and it is really great. It's the most complex MERN app I've seen on Internet. How all things come together, in an enterprise level app, shows how much I have still to learn...
Outstanding Course. I was surprised to see how data models could be interlinked to each other and how this information can be used on the frontend..
I wanted to learn about Nextjs implementation with MERN stack and Socket io. There was no course about it previously on Udemy. This is what i was looking for.
The instructor has explained everything with detail, makes it easy for even beginners to grasp the information..
Great So Far.. Already learnt a lot of new things. Just Sometimes the instructor goes a little fast. Otherwise, great.. The explanation is good.
