The module labs will have you build a REST API for a blog using Express.
Introduction to setting up a MongoDB database and connecting it to a Node.js server.
The module labs will have you build a REST API that stores data in a MongoDB database. You will also build a node script to migrate data from JSON files to a MongoDB database.
Introduction to using Mongoose to model database schemas and interact with MongoDB databases easier.
The module labs will have you build relational queries using Mongoose. You will also reimplement your REST API from module 2 using Mongoose as a database library.
