Learn what you should know before starting the course.
But you certainly don't need more than a basic understanding. Secondly, understanding Node.js, what it does and how it works, will also be useful. You don't need to be an expert or even an intermediate user. But if you've never seen a Node.js app before, you should take the time to learn a bit about working with Node before taking the course. Finally, since the core reason for using LoopBack is to build APIs, you should at least understand what an API is and what they're used for.
If you've ever used a service like Twitter or Facebook's APIs, then you already have an understanding of the basic way that APIs work. You ask for permission to use it, you read the docs, and then you craft an http request to ask for the information you need. Most likely you've already consumed APIs, but with LoopBack you'll learn how to actually create these APIs.
