    With regards to the Node.js, there's a bit of confusion in the listen and communication session,could someone clarify the coding that was presented?

      Hey Melissa: I'm happy to help. Can you be a little more specific? Is it the Go code or the Node code that you were confused about? Have you checked out the source code?­
