The ExpressJS framework can be intimidating to the developer that is new to NodeJS. In this presentation Guy Ellis will take you from basic concepts, that will provide you with the fundamentals needed to build a well structured ExpressJS application, through to some more advanced topics that will give you the ability to created a powerful web application that is easy to extend and maintain.

ExpressJS is rarely used in isolation. Guy will also touch on other frameworks that build on and enhance ExpressJS such as the Jade View Engine, the Mongoose Object Document Mapper, MongoDB and AngularJS for the presentation layer.

You will leave this presentation with knowledge and tools to immediately fire up and run an ExpressJS application on Node and you are encouraged to join in and code during the presentation if you have a laptop with you.
