About this Course

Learn the first steps to building a web server with the minimalistic Node.js framework Express.

This course is intended for people who have never touched the framework. A basic knowledge of Node.js / JavaScript is required. Some exposure to fundamental database principles is highly advised.

The course provides an quick overview of the framework and gets you started with building a JSON RESTful API with the four basic data operations of CREATE, READ, UPDATE, and DELETE ("CRUD").
