JavaScript User Authentication With Express and Mongo User Registration Defining a Mongo Schema with Mongoose

Quick question

Hi guys

I was wondering if there was any particular reason Dave set the two variables to User and UserSchema rather than starting them both with lowercase?

Thanks in advance Happy coding Paul

It is usually good/common practice to have your "classes" start with uppercase. To Later use the User model you will need to create a user object. You do that by

const user = new User({});

Having it be uppercase you will know that it will be used to create new objects

Think i understand, there is so much still to learn about JavaScript.

Thanks a lot
