Who Should Take Express.js Training?
New or aspiring software engineers. Express.js is a particularly good tool for new software engineers to learn to use for two reasons. First, building web servers is complex and challenging. Second, because Express.js is lightweight and un-opinionated, you won’t be bogged down with preconceived ideas or pre-made choices about your designs and implementation.
