I’m slowly attempting to learn Node.js. To do that I’m reading Getting MEAN with Mongo, Express, Angular, and Node, playing around with apps on Glitch, and creating a mini-app. I learn best by jumping in head first so I’m finding it helpful to write code for a real app even though I feel lost half the time.
Node.js has a pretty steep learning curve, so I’m planning to document some of the challenges that I face along the way, even if it’s a simple bug that takes me a few minutes to figure out. The primary purpose of writing these posts is for my own future reference and to help me internalize the lessons I’m learning.
