- Hey there, this is Ray Villalobos, staff author at Lynda.com. And I wanna welcome you to Up and Running with NPM, the Node Package Manager. In this short course, I'm gonna show you how work with the Node Package Manager. NPM is an integral part of modern project work flows. You can use NPM to install packages that add functionality to your web projects. I'll start by showing you how to install NODE.JS on a Mac and a PC. And how to work with NPM in a terminal application.
I'll show you how to create a package.json file so that you can keep track of project dependencies. And how to control your installations using different features in NPM. This is probably not a course that you'll take by itself, but it will be a prerequisite for a lot of other courses in our library. So let's get started with Up and Running with NPM, the Node Package Manager.
