Level two: Introduction#

Welcome to the n8n Course Level 2!

Is this course right for me?#

This course is for you if you:

  • Want to automate somewhat complex business processes.
  • Want to dive deeper into n8n after taking the Level 1 course.

What will I learn in this course?#

The focus in this course is on working with data. You will learn how to:

  • Use the data structure of n8n correctly.
  • Process different data types (for example, XML, HTML, date, time, and binary data).
  • Merge data from different sources (for example, a database, spreadsheet, or CRM).
  • Use functions and JavaScript code in the Code node.
  • Deal with error workflows and workflow errors.

You will learn all this by completing short practical exercises after the theoretical explanations, and building a business workflow following instructions.
