1.1 Introduction

Hi! I'm Jeremy McPeak, and in this course we're going to write a universal JavaScript application. I'll show you what we're building and how to set up the components you need to write universal JavaScript apps, and then we'll go on to write the app step by step from scratch. Let's get started!

1.1 Introduction

Being a full SEC developer has always been less than ideal to put it nicely. On the client, we not only have to know HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, but all of the other tools, libraries, and frameworks that make working with those technologies a little easier. But then there's the server which is an entirely different beast with a completely different set of languages, tools, libraries, and frameworks and [SOUND]. But in recent years there's been a push in the node community to make what are now referred to as universal JavaScript applications, and it's a brilliant idea. Use the same JavaScript code on both the client and server. Now this is not a magic pill, and there are several road bumps that the community needs to solve, but it has the potential to be the dream that full stack developers have always had. Hi, my name is Jeremy McPeak, and I hope that you will join me for the next half hour so that we can get started writing a universal JavaScript application. We'll be using react and many other components to write a web app where the server and client code is mostly the same. We're going to start by looking at our application and the components that you need to write a universal JavaScript app. We'll then move on to writing a react component. We'll then make everything work in the browser. And then finally we will spend a few moments on the server to essentially reuse everything that we wrote for the client. So when you're ready, queue up the next video and we will get started.
