The Express web application framework for Node strikes the ideal balance between a robust framework and no framework at all. Many web frameworks try to do so much that they become inflexible and overly complicated, having a negative effect on both learning curve and ability to customize. Express takes a much more agnostic approach, allowing developers a free hand in their architecture choices. It is a joy to work with, and this book is designed not only to introduce the framework, but also to provide some guidance about how to go about doing things that more elaborate (and inflexible) frameworks provide.
As someone who deals every day with the complexities of real-world websites, author Ethan Brown offers tremendous wisdom and experience for people interested in producing high-quality, fast, maintainable websites that are friendly to SEO and analytics.
