Express is the most prominent Node.js web framework. Built on connect, express allows rapid web application development and a host of community build middleware and plugins. Express provides a thin layer of features fundamental to any web application without obscuring features that you are used to in Node.js.
During the meetup we'll initialize an express application with the express cli, cover the express api, route traffic and build some middleware. We'll also look at standard ways of stubbing controllers for express and how the compare to other frameworks like Rails. After we'll have some Q&A.
Node Orlando lasts ~1hr, we'll start close to 7pm to be mindful of everyone's time. If you have any questions regarding Node in general, be sure to bring them and save them for the Q&A.
