Why aren't we using nodemon ?

Why aren't we using nodemon ? I mean I get the idea that it is important to learn basics, but aren't the one or two videos enough ?

If you already know how to use nodemon, nothing is stopping you from using it here to avoiding stopping and restarting your app! Andrew probably didn't want to overwhelm people unfamiliar with it by requiring a global npm install so early in the course.
