Node.js or Express.js


#1

Hello everybody,

I have almost completed Introduction to Javascript course.

Now, what should I start learning node.js or do that express.js course

I know that express.js is a framework for node.js, so will that express.js course teach node.js first or will it directly teach express.

Hi there. I would do the express.js course. Nodejs is nothing more than JavaScript running on the server side (and accessed through your terminal). If you went through the JS course, I think you should be well prepared to go through the express.js course. The express course is a little bit more challenging and doesn’t hold you by the hand as much as the JS course so you need to be careful about your code and read up on documentation when necessary. I am working on the express course myself after during the intro to JS and seem to be catching up just fine. Good luck!
