Learning Outcomes

Upon completing your learning, you will be able to

  • Understand the role of the back end in a full-stack application and how it handles requests, processes data, and communicates with the front end.
  • Install the necessary tools and dependencies to create and run your back-end application.
  • Define routes and create controller functions to handle different types of incoming requests.
  • Explore the concept of middleware and how it can be used for tasks such as authentication, logging, and error handling.

In today's digital landscape, the concept of a Server-Client framework is at the core of most web and mobile applications. A "Server" might sound complex, but it's essentially a specialized computer designed to receive and respond to requests that client computers make. This interaction forms the backbone of how data and information flow seamlessly between users and applications.

As you step into the realm of Full Stack Development, you'll find that there are three key areas of focus. First, there's the Front End, where you craft the user interfaces using technologies like Next.js, React.js, Vue.js, and more. These front-end interfaces act as the visual gateway for users to interact with the application. They initiate requests to the back-end application, which is where the magic of server-side processing happens.

So, whether you are taking your first steps into full-stack development or looking to broaden your skill set, this campaign will be your guiding light. Get ready to dive into the intricacies of server-side development and take a significant stride toward becoming a well-rounded Full Stack Developer. Let's build a strong foundation together!
