Quick, clean, efficient. You can apply what you learned at any point to real world development.

I've tinkered with express, and I was very surprised at how well rounded just 5 sections covered it. It gave me a lot of insight into the workings, and I'm happy because I've been working with it recently. Also my first experience with Carlos and I have to say he was great. The Javascript teachers are always interesting it seems. Code school definitely stands out among others for its depth of JS courses I feel.

I've been using Express for some hobby projects lately, and even though this course starts completely from scratch, I've picked up a more than a couple of great hints and patterns that I didn't know about before. Definitely recommend taking a look at this!
