It is a good software engineering practice to separate portions of your code function to work independently of other parts. Since your codes are made up of functions basically, serverless functions allow you to deploy those functions without the complexity of managing a server to run them.
In this tutorial, we will be learning what serverless functions are, how to write them, and how to deploy them on Netlify in minutes. We will also touch up on other uses of serverless functions.
A serverless function is a function hosted on a cloud infrastructure and performs a single purpose. It is very similar to every other function you write as long as it has its own dependencies and can run on its own. It is serverless because it takes off the stress of server maintenance and scaling the function from you. …

In my learning journey to writing better code, I started learning tests and would be sharing with you how easy it is to add tests to your application (Node API in this case).
At the end of this article, you will be able to write an end-to-end test that makes call API call, test GET and POST request of an API which test your insert and search function, database connection and if data is retrieved.
In this tutorial, I have prepared a simple Node JS API that fetches record from a MongoDB database. …
