Learning NodeJS

Tonight’s post is brief, as I’m just taking a short break while continuing to learn back-end development. I’ve been practicing/learning NodeJS for about a week or two now. It’s been a lot of fun, and I’m enjoying it more than I expected I would.

We were given an assignment a few days ago to recreate a single blog post from a mockup, pulling the content into the page dynamically with Javascript. That part was pretty straightforward. I wanted to challenge myself more. Thus, I am creating a blog site, using NodeJS, Express, and MongoDB. You can catch a video sample of it here: https://youtu.be/Rm_u9fhrJVE or look at my gitHub repo here: https://github.com/austinChappell/node-blog-project. We haven’t started learning back-end development at The Iron Yard yet, but I am trying to get a head start. I’m proud of the work so far. The final two steps on the blog site for now are adding user authentication (username/password) and the ability to add comments to a blog post.

That’s all for now. Time to get back to it…
