Create a Basic Server and Integrate a Database step by step
Express is a fast, minimalist framework that sits on top of Node.js and allows you to build powerful single- and multi-page web applications and websites.
Express can also be integrated with other modules and databases and offers HTTP utilities and middleware for creating APIs.
This course will teach you the very basics in practical steps from installation to creating basic routes and using various http request and response status codes. You will learn how to use a useful tool called postman to test http request methods and also the response and status codes. We will also be learning how to install mongodb database and integrate it into our express app.
By the end of the course we would have created a basic functional express server integrated with a mongoDB database.
