Join Ray Villalobos for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Building a Website with Node.js and Express.js.
- [Voiceover] Hey there, it's ray again. Thanks for watching this course. Express makes it really easy to create web applications with real-time data and route management made simple. If you're looking for ways to deploy your app, you may wanna check out services like Heroku that make it really easy to host, not just Ruby applications, but also Node.js apps. Another service you can use is Firebase from Google. It will let you host your apps and provide some exciting features like NoSQL database, registration, and authorization, plus analytics.
If you're looking for the easiest way to deploy your applications, you may want to look into something called Now at this URL. It's as easy as installing a Node module called Now and then running it whenever you're ready to deploy your app. If you want to learn more about Node.js, make sure you take a look at Node.js Essential Training.

Thanks for watching.
In this course, Ray Villalobos walks through the process of creating full-featured websites with these technologies. First, find out how to install each package and leverage Node.js features from within Express. Then learn how to build a basic application with templating engines like EJS; create more flexible, modular code with includes and conditional statements; build APIs to manage HTTP requests to add and delete content dynamically; and configure more complex routing. Along the way, Ray implements features like customer feedback forms and real-time live chat, so you can see exactly what Node.js and Express are capable of.
- Handling HTTP requests with Node.js and Express
- Creating and modularizing routes
- Using templates
- Building flexible views
- Creating an API route
- Dealing with POST and DELETE requests
- Creating live chat features with Socket.IO
