What exactly is node.js? Is it a command-line tool, a language, the same thing as Ruby on Rails, a cure for cancer?

If you're new to web development, it can be a bit confusing as to what exactly node.js is and to what you should do with it, and there's a lot of information out there...most of which seems to be tailored towards genius-level developers.

So, here's a node.js introduction for those who have no idea what it is.

We're going to cover the difference between javascript in a browser vs javascript in node.js and the common uses for node.js.

To wrap it up, we're going to spin up a quick web server in node.js just to show you how easy it is.

Now, learn how to build an Express.js App!
