Node and Express go hand in hand. The ability to use this programming paradigm on any kind of web or mobile application makes this skillset incredibly valuable.

And the advantage of being able to build Full Stack applications based on just one language (JavaScript) is becoming more appealing every day. This is especially true for start-ups that put a big emphasis on being able to iterate early and often.

REVIEWS

“I’m currently in a coding bootcamp which moves very fast; therefore, details like you’ve presented were missed from lectures. You’re tutorial really helped me solidify what each dev dependency package is and how they’re used. Also, I now understand every other bit of code on the page. I have to add this lecture as to why I now understand expressjs. Thanks!”
