  • Course NodeJS Programming : Content

    In the course NodeJS Programming participants learn how the NodeJS JavaScript library can be used on the server side of Web Applications. NodeJS originated in 2009 and has since then become a powerful asynchronous development framework for creating scalable web applications.

    Node.js Library

    The Node.js library, the popularity of which is still increasing, it is also part of the MEAN stack (MongoDB, ECMAScript, Angular and Node) which is aimed at the development of high-speed I/O-centric applications.

    Node en NPM

    The course starts by discussing the architecture of the Node.js library with runtime modules as filesystem, events and process. Also the NPM package manager that allows community modules to be included is treated.

    Asynchronous Event Handling

    Next the asynchronous event handling model of NodeJS is on the course schedule and the use of promises and futures of ECMAScript 6 and 7 for the handling of callbacks is explained.

    Streaming Data en Express.js

    Also attention is paid to the processing of streaming data and File I/O in NodeJS. Also the handling of multiple concurrent client requests in NodeJS is discussed as well as the Express.js Framework that deals with templating, routing and middleware services.

    Database Access

    The Database Access module will show you how to integrate NodeJS capabilities in the backend with databases like MongoDB, MySQL and SQLite.

    Rest API

    Finally attention is paid to the creation of a Rest API and using AngularJS for Frontend.

    Course Forms

    All our courses are classroom courses in which the students are guided through the material on the basis of an experienced trainer with in-depth material knowledge. Theory is always interspersed with exercises.


    We also do custom classes and then adjust the course content to your wishes. On request we will also discuss your practical cases.

    Course times

    The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30. But we are flexible in this. Sometimes people have to bring children to the daycare and other times are more convenient for them. In good consultation we can then agree on different course times.


    We take care of the computers on which the course can be held. The software required for the course has already been installed on these computers. You do not have to bring a laptop to participate in the course. If you prefer to work on your own laptop, you can take it with you if you wish. The required software is then installed at the start of the course.


    Our courses are generally given with Open Source software such as Eclipse, IntelliJ, Tomcat, Pycharm, Anaconda and Netbeans. You will receive the digital course material to take home after the course.


    The course includes lunch that we use in a restaurant within walking distance of the course room.


    The courses are planned at various places in the country. A course takes place at a location if at least 3 people register for that location. If there are registrations for different locations, the course will take place at our main location, Houten which is just below Utrecht. A course at our main location also takes place with 2 registrations and regularly with 1 registration. And we also do courses at the customer’s location if they appreciate that.


    At the end of each course, participants are requested to evaluate the course in terms of course content, course material, trainer and location. The evaluation form can be found at https://www.klantenvertellen.nl/reviews/1039545/spiraltrain?lang=en. The evaluations of previous participants and previous courses can also be found there.


    The intellectual property rights of the published course content, also referred to as an information sheet, belong to SpiralTrain. It is not allowed to publish the course information, the information sheet, in written or digital form without the explicit permission of SpiralTrain. The course content is to be understood as the description of the course content in sentences as well as the division of the course into modules and topics in the modules.
