Building Server-Side Apps with Node and Express

Is this Class Right For You?

This class is intended for the intermediate or advanced JavaScript developer who wants to learn how to create a server-side application written entirely in JavaScript. You should be familiar with the basics of JavaScript syntax and the concepts of control flow and conditionals.
