In the terminal, what does the code mean?
The teacher seems not to explain the code meaning in terminal... 'node app.js john' (Sorry, I forgot the real name he used in the video) Does it mean Run the app.js and set a variable named john to it?

You're basically right. The first term is what you will run, in this case "node". The other terms are arguments to node.
