Spend the Day Immersed With a Leading Full Stack JavaScript Master

Node.js has proven to be an excellent platform for building data APIs. While Express.js is the most popular framework to do so, it does have some shortcomings which other solutions aim to improve upon. One of these alternatives is Hapi.js, a feature-rich and elegant framework for building apps, APIs, and services with Node.

We’ll start the workshop by understanding what exactly Hapi.js is and the value that it offers to developers. To get our feet wet, we’ll spin up a Hapi.js server and create a small “Hello world” API. After that, we’ll learn how to create all the endpoints we would need for a data resource and how we can make them respond to GET, POST, PATCH, and DELETE requests.

Once we get comfortable with creating routes, we’ll look at some of the more advanced scenarios that Hapi.js can help with, including how to using route prerequisites to handle task synchronization for code we want to run before our route handlers are reached.

We’ll look at some of the most popular libraries in the Hapi.js ecosystem, including Boom for easily handling errors and Joi for validating request payloads. We’ll finish up by finding out how to configure plugins for Hapi.js, which opens up many possibilities for extensibility.

Is This Workshop For Me?

This workshop is for any JavaScript developer who is interested in building data APIs with Node.js. While prior experience with Node isn’t necessary, the workshop will not serve as an introduction to the Node platform itself. Those who have some (even if limited) prior experience with Node–and ideally with Express.js–will be best served by the workshop.


You'll Either LOVE This Workshop Or You Don't Pay. Period.

Our attendees are ecstatic by the high-quality, relevant content they receive at these workshops.

We cover everything in explicit detail (and the things we miss are covered by answers to YOUR questions) from basic to advanced tactics you can start working with the very same day. We don't want you to miss out on this opportunity because you've been to less-than-stellar workshops in the past. We promise you, ours are very unique.

That's why if you attend the workshop and aren't absolutely thrilled with the content… if you don't think it's worth the admission price… We refuse to accept your money. We will more than gladly issue you a full refund, so you risk nothing.

We're very specific about what you're getting here and have ran lots of workshops… so we've almost never have requests for refunds (99.8% satisfaction rate).

What Past Attendees Are Saying

"Superb presentation from a genuine domain expert. I learned a ton today."

Steve Jakubowski

"Keep up the good work. I've attended a lot of online workshops, and they are very shallow and unpractical. Most of the time, online people are treated as second class, but still paying citizens. Here we get all the content and get to participate as well (if only there was a way to get those cookies...)."

Adrian Murillo

"The class was great. It was really cool to get a bunch of links to example code to look at during the presentation and after the class."

Nate Yourchuck

"Good location and facility. Great technology for capture, presentation layout and video streaming. Really excellent being able to view the videos afterwards. It takes away the sense of having to absorb everything immediately or else lose it into the ether. It was fun. What more can you ask for?"

Laurence Bates

"Really well run...loved the communication pre-event. Very impressed with everything...this was my first online conference purchase, but I would definitely consider doing it again."

Jeff Sims

"I really enjoyed the online workshop experience. It is much better than just watching videos. I was able to participate in the conversations and benefit from other folks' questions."

Dana Greenberg

"You guys did a really great job! I cannot say enough good things about the experience."

Richard Ranke

"Everything was first class: excellent instructor, material, video, moderator, audio. Thank you!"
