Scott covers topics such as working with middleware, testing in Node.js, application organization, data modeling, querying data with Mongoose, using JSON Web Token, securing routes, and deployment. After finishing this course, you’ll have built and deployed a fully functional API for a blogging app with authentication, and you’ll have the skills you need to build your own APIs.
