71% off #Node API’s For iOS Apps: Mobile Backend Development – $10

Develop a Node, Express and MongoDB mobile backend API powering an iOS application

Beginner Level,  –   2.5 hours,  35 lectures 

Average rating 4.2/5 (4.2 (43 ratings) Instead of using a simple lifetime average, Udemy calculates a course’s star rating by considering a number of different factors such as the number of ratings, the age of ratings, and the likelihood of fraudulent ratings.)

Course requirements:

Students should know how to make API calls from their mobile applications although making API calls in Swift 2 is covered as an example

Course description:

**** CREATED IN SWIFT 2 ****

Can currently still be completed in Xcode 8 with legacy swift language version turned on, however!


Stop just being a mobile developer.

Most mobile applications need to be powered by a server running on the backend. Popular application development courses shy away from teaching new developers how to build their own servers, and instead turn to backend-as-a-service providers such as Parse and Firebase to do the work for them. The problem with these solutions is that often you’ll hit some roadblock while developing your app that these backends can’t help with, or even make more difficult to solve.

To be a flexible and powerful developer who’s capable of building world-class applications, you need to understand how they work across the full stack: from the iPhone in your hand, to a server and database running in another country. My course is designed to show you how to become your own backend service provider and free yourself from frameworks designed by others who can’t possibly understand your specific needs.

Developing backend API’s makes you capable of so much more as a developer

We’re going to start by building an iOS application that relies on a local Node.js server for user registration/authentication and storing user information. Our iOS app will allow users to maintain a to-do list on the server, which they can access from any device. The backend will be powered by a Javascript server framework called Express.js and use a document-oriented database called MongoDB. These technologies enable developers to quickly prototype and develop applications in a flexible manner.

We’re then going to deploy our Node.js backend onto a live production Linux server hosted by Amazon EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud). This will truly be a production-ready backend – websites including Netflix, Pinterest, and Reddit run on Amazon Web Services, and you’ll find it significantly cheaper than Heroku.

I’ll then show you how to use Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) to store images uploaded from our iPhone app.

Building the backend to your applications is satisfying and rewarding; when you can develop for the full stack you become a profoundly more flexible and competent developer, so let’s get started.

“Really great course, just could use some more explanation in the sections about deploying to AWS (how it works, why certain configurations are used, what are policies and what they do, etc.), or at least links to learn more about those concepts.” (Mikhail Bhuta)

“goes fast, but good content” (Dylan Fiedler)

“Speaks a little fast and a bit hard to keep up. A little more explanation of why certain choices within the code would be nice especially if he added comments for each function” (Mar)



About Instructor:

Alex Paterson

I started out building web and mobile apps for me and my friends. I was quickly swept away by the creative freedom application development provides, and the satisfaction that comes with creating an experience for thousands if not millions of people.
My first live website was just an HTML and a CSS document FTP’d to some Bluehost servers. I then discovered Ruby on Rails and it took over my life as I realized how easy it was to create web applications. I built my first software-as-a-service product (Clearsite Content Filtering) in Python with less than six months of coding experience.
To deploy a multifaceted project like Clearsite Content Filtering, I had to move away hosting with platform-as-a-service providers like Heroku, and set up my own virtual private servers with Amazon Web Services. This process showed me the pleasure of full-stack development.
Originally using backend-as-a-service platforms like Parse and Firebase to power my mobile apps, it quickly became clear that building my own backends was not just more flexible, but in some ways, easier.
I now develop almost exclusively in Javascript; developing web application frontends with React/Redux is a joy, and being able to use Javascript and JSON throughout the rest of the stack (express.js server, MongoDB database) is supremely convenient.
