User Authentication with Express and Mongo | Trailer1:00 with Chris Zabriskie
In this course, you'll learn how to add authentication to an Express application.
In other words, you'll learn how to add user registration and
login to a web application.
Visitors can create an account on your site, log into your site, and
see personalized information based on their user profile.
We'll add authentication to a fictional booklet or site named, Bookworm.
We'll add a registration form, a log in form, and a personalized profile page that
shows information specific to the logged in user.
In the process,
you'll learn how to use Mongoose to connect with the MongoDB database.
How to write custom express middleware, and how sessions and cookies work.
In addition, you'll learn how to manage sessions by adding a custom
session store that uses Mongo to hold important information for your users.
When you're done, you'll know a lot more about Express and
Mongo and you'll have built a fully functioning authentication system.
