About Web Apps Development using Node.js along with Express.js and MongoDB

Node.js is one of the hottest technologies for modern web development. Express.js is a web framework, which makes standard web development much easier, wrapped over core Node.js capabilities. MongoDB is a NoSQL database system based on JSON storage format. Considering JSON is the de-facto standard for data exchange across web layers, it makes all the more sense to make MongoDB a data repository. In this course, Learners will be able to explore and apply all the key features of the listed technologies and also get a hands-on experience in creating a real-life application.
