Building RESTful Web APIs with Express and Node.js at a very high level

September 10, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

What we’ll do

Speaker: Marcus Washington – We would like to use Node.js and Express in order to build a web API to push and pull data from your applications via HTTP. In this course we will show you how to create a simple, RESTful web API with these two popular JavaScript libraries. We will show you how to set up the project, including the Express server and testing environment, and create the endpoints needed to add, update, and delete data from a MongoDB database.

Attempt to cover

Setting up a project and a server
Setting up a database and schema
Creating POST, GET, PUT, and DELETE endpoints
Serving files
RESTful API relevance

We will also give the opportunity to share and discuss javascript issues. Think of debugging as a group. 🙂

What to bring

It’s not mandatory, but a device to work on such as laptop, tablet, phone could be beneficial to follow along with.

Important to know

This is group is for beginners to advanced users. All are welcome.

A Slack channel is available for discussion along with sharing of information. You can join it here: http://www.startupgp.org/gpedc-programs/slack-team/
