So far we have talked about what we call frontend development.
We’ve used HTML and CSS to create Web Pages.
Now it’s time to take a look at the server side, the backend.
But on the server, we could use any language. Ruby, PHP, Python.. the list is long.
We’ll use Node.js extensively, explicitly or abstracted by other tools that are built on top of it, to:
- listen for data sent by forms
- create an API
- work with databases
…and much more.
It is a central part of everything in Web Development, so it’s essential you understand it well.
