Node development in TypeScript

Class length: 3 days (customizable)

Share code and development skills across front and back end code by combining a TypeScript based front end with a Node+TypeScript server side. Oasis Digital teams have been doing this for years, and are ready to teach your team best practices for quality and productivity.

We use and recommend TypeScript for essentially all JavaScript development, including Node development. TypeScript pays off for both the development experience and reduction in defects found in production. It is therefore no surprise that TypeScript is so strongly ascendant, gaining rapid wide adoption across the JavaScript development ecosystem.

This class introduces Node, TypeScript, and several of the most popular and relevant libraries used with them for server-side / back-end development. We focus on API endpoint server, data management, and integration across the stack.

Class topics include:

  • Node (and TypeScript) tradeoffs versus other server platforms
  • REST/JSON services
  • GraphQL introduction
  • Data push / streaming
  • Built-in libraries, and more more advanced libraries
  • Dealing with asynchrony
  • Migrating to Node
  • Development tooling
  • Deployment
  • Sharing code between Node servers and web UI tiers
  • Security
  • Cloud deployment
  • Node ecosystem
  • Complex, realistic examples
  • Hands-on workshops

Unlike typical introductory Node instruction, we don't stop with trivial hand-rolled HTTP servers. Rather, our students gain a familiarity with the overall ecosystem of high productivity, more advanced tooling for serious Node development.

Our outline for this class is broad and contains introductions to various important and useful Node technology; but we can also customize the class, reducing the length, for customers who have already narrowed their technology choices.

Who Should Attend?

This class is suitable for:

  • Architects, decision makers, and project leaders considering NodeJS for future projects
  • Developers slated to create API servers or other back-end systems using Node
  • Developers already working in Node, eager to expand their understanding
  • Teams which can benefit from "isomorphic" code sharing and skill sharing across tiers
  • Developers new to Node, coming from other popular back-end platforms like Java or C#.

Prerequisites / requirements for coding workshops

  • Experience in software development (any language).
  • VSCode (free download) to work on TypeScript source code.
  • A computer - this is a hands-on workshop.
  • Ability to install software, including Node, NPM, and packages.

Proven results

We have trained thousands of developers at hundreds of companies, including numerous global leaders.

Two ways to learn

1) Training for your team,

For corporate groups and other organizations, we offer live in-person or online instruction. These teams typically have advanced needs, so we provide customized, hands-on assistance.

Before each class, our instructors listen to your needs in depth and adjust the agenda. We can follow-up a class with consulting assistance, or combine multiple classes into a longer workshop week.

Contact us about a private class

2) Live-instructor public classes,
coming soon

Want to attend as an individual or small group? We are creating public, open enrollment versions of many of our classes, including this one.

Unlike canned video training, live instructor online classes offer frequent opportunities for detailed Q&A discussion.

This class isn't quite ready yet, but follow us on social media (bottom of the page) or keep an eye on our website for announcements. We will show the schedule of upcoming open enrollment class dates prominently.

Topic outline


Oasis Digital instructors have extensive experience with both Angular and numerous surrounding technologies; here are some of them. The specific instructor(s) assigned to your class will depend on which class or class topics (we customize!) are put together, availability, additional consulting needs, etc.

Training FAQs

Q: Is this taught "in person"?
A: We offer training both in-person and online via remote conferencing.
Q: How does the remote option work?
A: Much like an in-person class, it is conducted by our expert trainers, in real time. The trainers can answer questions, assist with trouble students are having, etc. We strive to offer as much of the in-person experience as possible, online.
Q: Are there open enrollment public classes?
A: We currently only offer an open-enrollment "public" class for our flagship Angular Boot Camp.
Q: Can the content be customized?
A: For private team classes, we *always* discuss your goals, the class contents, any specials areas for extra coverage, etc. in advance. We customize both the contents and length (number of days) to your needs.
Q: Can we schedule a private class any time?
A: Our classes are taught by developers who use the subject technologies in their daily work, so we don't assign "any" available developer/trainer to any particular class, but only to classes with a strong experience and knowledge match. Please contact us to arrange a date.
