What you will learn

Build real project with NestJS

Write high quality code in NestJS

Create reusable modules and services in NestJS


In this course we will build a Medium clone API using NestJS, Typescript, Typeorm and PostgreSQL. This course is fully focused on fast and deep dive into creation of API for real application with NestJS. We will start from scratch and step by step you will get close to finished real application. You will deeply understand how to structure your application, build reusable and understandable modules and services and split code into smaller chunks of code. We will write code together in efficient way to make it pure and avoid data complexity. 

For each lesson you'll get source code of the lesson, so it's easy to see the progress and get a working app on any lesson you want. 

What you will learn in this course:

  • Structure and configure project

  • Write high quality code with NestJS on real project

  • Create reusable modules, controllers and services

  • Implementing authentication

  • Deeply understand NestJS design patterns

No prior knowledge except of Javascript is needed (because I will teach you everything from basics) but if you have experience with any of this  (Angular/NodeJS/Express/Typescript/Typeorm/PostgreSQL) it will be easier for you to go through this course.

If you are feeling like you learned NodeJS but you still still missing knowledge of how to build your own real application this course is what you need. This course is fully focused on creating the application without getting deep into basic knowledge of NodeJS!

This course is awesome. This is my first course for NestJs, but I think I learn a lot from this. I highly recommend this course someone who is a newbie for NestJs.

Отличный курс! Все грамотно объясняется, автор не бросает с места в карьер, а постепенно вводит в понимание фреймворка NestJS.
