Motivated by the importance of API and popularity of JS, we like to show you how to develop a custom RESTful API using Node.JS and MongoDB. Along the way, you leverage and improve your JS skills. Obviously, you can expand this tutorial by using MySQL instead of MongoDB or securing API by adding authentication call-backs to it.
