- [Emmanuel] Have you mastered the front-end world but feel like your still missing some knowledge around building a back-end? Have you been looking for a simple way to learn how to build an API with Node and Express? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, you've come to the right place. Building an API leveraging Node and Express libraries can be intimidating the first time you try it, but I'm here to simplify and demystify the whole process. Hi I'm Manny Henri and I've been working with Node and Express for a very long time and it is my great pleasure to help you learn about building an API with those two libraries. First, we'll explore the tools used for testing our API in its database. Next, we'll set the stage for API with our initial Express server and routing endpoints. Then we'll set up our Mongo database along with its schema. Finally, we'll create each API endpoints to add, update, delete and pull data from our CRM back-end. So, if you're ready to build your own API, fire up your favorite editor and let's get started.
