JavaScript Build a Simple Dynamic Site with Node.js Creating a Basic Template Engine in Node.js Making Our Views DRY

I'm stopping at this checkpoint. I will take Node.js Basics before moving on to templating.

I think this is a fantastic course, and it covers some super exciting topics, but I needed to supplement along the way.

Here is my approach:

  1. To understand the pseudocode/planning stage I took the HTTP Basics Course
  2. When I reached the home and user routing stage I watched this video about creating a route from the 4 hour long Express Basics Course.
  3. I've now stopped at this video and now will take the Node.js Basics Course to reinforce what I've learned before learning the basics of templating.
  4. I will then take Working with the Fetch API.
  5. Then I will return and complete this section on reading files and the rest of the course on accepting a POST body and redirection.
  6. I will then rebuild this project using Fetch API
  7. Then and only then will I move on to the Express Basics Course

Onwards and upwards! 🙏🏼
