Why Learn Express?
In this course, you’ll learn how to build HTTP servers in Node.js using the Express framework. Express allows you to start and configure a server with very little overhead and instead focus on the important work of defining server behavior.
You’ll learn how to create routes to implement server behavior for different HTTP methods and paths. You’ll also learn how to use Express’s most powerful features, such as routers and middleware, in order to write clean and readable server-side code.
Notes on Prerequisites:
