Form that sends the data to email.

I am looking to build a form with bootstrap which i am able to do however i am wondering what video/videos should I watch to learn how to use javascript or another language/framework to send the data entered into the form to an email address.

well first i would watch if you haven't yet is the full stack JavaScript videos so you can learn node js or the php track etc to learn how to send data to things like a data base first. Then if you want to send data to a email address you can gather the info from a data base that was passed into the form or just from the server you set up using something like https://www.mailgun.com/ or mailchimp etc that can route the email to where ever the sender was

also here is a video on this as well with node js https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrXOjWICmGw

Hope this helps

Thanks for your help :)

yep not a problem glad i was able to help you out
