In this series,  we creates a RESTful API using the Express web application framework.  Justin review the process of setting up a Node-based project as well as installing the Express Node module.  After that,  Justin discusses important concepts and processes that are key in developing a RESTful API such as creating routes that correspond to data resources,  data modeling of those resources,  use of middleware to make the API a little more robust,  and adding a persistence layer to the API.  RESTful APIs are abound when developing software,  so if that sounds like something interesting to you,  then join us!
