Hello! My name is David Lindner. In this course we’ll be going over how to create a REST API. To an average person the backend of a website is a magic black hole; no one knows what goes on behind the scenes. Of course there are tons of free APIs out there to use. But we as programmers can create our own APIs. When working with a full stack application a developer needs to be familiar with creating a custom REST API to interact with all the bells and whistles on their front end of the application. So let’s do this! We’re gonna build our own REST API using MongoDB as our database; along the mongoose tool to build schemas and model our data. Express and Node.js will be used to create our server and complete our CRUD applications. What are CRUD applications you may ask? Well CRUD (Create – Read – Update – Delete) is the term used for how we manipulate data from and to our database. All of these topics will be covered in depth during the course. So, I hope you find this course helpful in your programming goals; and ultimately I hope you have fun learning the ins and outs of building a REST API! Let’s get to coding!
