Join Victor Mejia for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know, part of Angular: API Communication and Authentication.
- [Instructor] This course will assume a basic understanding of Angular, Node, NPM, and GIT. If you're unfamiliar with Angular Two and beyond, I recommend you watch our course on Essential Training for Angular Two. If you don't have GIT installed on your system, go ahead and download it from git-scm.com. We will be using Node to install packages and to write our API. You can download Node at nodejs.org. You will need at least V6.10.0 for Node, and at least V3.10 for NPM.
You can verify both in your terminal, or if you're on a Windows machine, using your command prompt. You can verify your Node version by typing in node --version and npm --version. If you don't know how to use NPM, I recommend you watch our course on NPM, the Node Package Manager. We will also be using Postman. A great cross-platform tool for developing and testing your APIs.
