Note: Mastering Express Web Application Development was created by Packt Publishing. It was originally released on 6/30/2015. We are pleased to host this training in our library.
To start, author Michael Heap creates a new Express application, showing how to configure it and increase application visibility with logs. Explore Express along with various libraries that will help improve your development experience. Then take a look at technologies such as SSL and nginx, and work through deploying your application to production in a secure and scalable way. Michael also introduces some existing open-source Express projects and reviews how they are structured, to help you organize your own applications in a systematic way. By the end of the course, you’ll be familiar with a wide range of new Express tools and libraries, all of which will help you deliver the best value to your customers.
