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.
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.
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.
