All aboard the NodeJS Express

Get on board the NodeJS Express as we take a journey through what makes NodeJS special. Server-side JavaScript that has an event loop for a heart, we'll delve into its single threaded nature and the advantages provided. From there we'll pass through the land of the Node Package Management tool, how to set up your own package and bring in useful 3rd party packages as dependencies. Our final destination is ExpressJS, a Sinatra inspired framework for NodeJS.
