With NodeJS being a low-level platform, it is not a framework by itself. This leads us to a problem of how we can organize code, parse requests, send back responses, use template engines, implement authentication, validation, and connect to databases among other things without solving those problems by ourselves?
For many years, NodeJS developers' choice of web framework is ExpressJS.
After taking this course, you can start mastering ExpressJS by building RESTful APIs for your single-page applications (powered by AngularJS, ReactJS, BackboneJS or any other front-end framework). With ExpressJS, developers can easily organize their code (middleware pattern), add more functionality (npm modules) and configure the server (configuration over convention).
Moreover, Express is mature and very stable so that it's a default choice for small companies and large enterprises. Even more advanced frameworks, like Sails or Loopback, extend ExpressJS (i.e., they depend on Express). Therefore, learning ExpressJS first is a valuable investment, because you can apply the same skills and existing ExpressJS middleware to more advanced frameworks.
This course comes with series of lectures and practicum. The benefits of ExpressWorks course and practicum (ExpressWorks the automated workshop) include:
Not for you? No problem.
30 day money back guarantee.
Learn on the go.
Desktop, iOS and Android.
Certificate of completion.
In this lecture, Azat Mardan (the author) will welcome you to the course and set the expectation. Express is a good choice for building web apps. You'll learn what is waiting you in this course.

In this lecture, you can download the slides for the rest of the Express.js course. It's recommended to have the slides, because it's more convenient to open links from a PDF just by clicking on them instead of typing the URLs from the screen when you don't have the PDF and just watch the video.
