Started learning Node.js and Express and MongoDB today to eventually be able to work on a MEAN stack.
Learned some cool things about Node such as asynchronous event triggering.
MongoDB is sweet in its JSON-like structures.
Express is also sweet in its easy-to -understand structure
Unfortunately, getting authentication to work in express isn't quite so easy but I'm working on it.
The goal is to eventually be able to make a blog platform for my girlfriend.
I would like to have it be static files and just use markdown files as blog posts. We'll see how this goes though.
