Tech Tutorial: Learning Express.js for Web Applications – Episode 16: Basic Routing

A key function of any web application framework is that of managing HTTP requests from clients. Web applications respond to those requests for information/data in many formats (HTML, CSV, JSON, etc.) and ways (building content from scratch, serving up static files, pulling data from a database, and returning it, redirecting to a different resource/service). It is because of this that a framework’s ability to identify requests and map them to internal resources is critical.

In this video, we will walk through the basic concept of routing in preparation for an introduction to Express.js’ router.

Personal Recommendation (unpaid)
