  • Authentication including Passport.js, Bcrypt
  • JSON Web Tokens (JWT) tokens explained, generation and usage
  • Authorization (making sure the user has privileges)
  • Using Postman (including collections, environments, automating Postman)
  • Unit testing
  • End to End testing (including connecting to a database)

The course comes with full source code included and available on GitHub at all times. Including a separate branch for every lecture with code changes.

I’ve made sure everything is as clear and simple as possible, so there are a lot of diagrams and visual aids included (and available for download too!).
