By the end of this project, you will Build a Node Server backend with Express that will fetch data from a MongoDB database. Often, a dynamic web application is connected to a database on the server side. Node.js serves as the web server used to access the database. Express is a framework for Node.js and acts as middleware to connect the backend Node server to the Client-facing web application. The Client facing web application can then make API (Application Programming Interface) calls to Express to gather data for the dynamic web application. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
