Hello learners! Welcome to Makerdemy’s “Introduction to Node-RED” course. If you are looking for that special course that teaches you how to prototype and develop applications on the go, you have come to the right place. This is a beginner level course, still, prior knowledge of basic programming principles and electronic concepts is a must before taking this course.

Through an innovative pedagogy of mixing projects and concepts, this course will help you learn the WHY, HOW, and WHAT. To this end, this course is beyond a cookbook. You will always know WHY you are doing something. For the more curious learners, we have ample resources to dive in and continue your learning journey.

In just five hours, you will be confident enough to use Node-RED to prototype real-world applications. You will also develop an in-depth understanding of the Node-RED editor and learn to use the different Node-RED nodes present in the library. As a part of this course, you will be exposed to building flows absolutely based on logic which is how Node-RED works!

If you are a hobbyist, a student or an engineer with a basic understanding of electronics and programming, this is the course for you.

So, what are you waiting for?! Come, join me in this course. I am looking forward to being your instructor and guide you in tinkering with Node-RED.
