How to Build a Node.js API (Part One)

Captain's log, stardate d593.y37/AB

Hi everyone!

I want to share with you how I built a Node.js API for one of our biggest clients, where I will describe some patterns and javascript conventions I've used. I will make it easy to export these ideas elsewhere so they can be useful for your projects.

I will break down this guide into several parts. My goal with this series posts is to make it easy to understand the rationale behind my decisions regarding code structure and conventions.

Disclaimer: the source code examples are, in most of the cases, a simplification of the real code for easier legibility and to avoid compromising our client's code.

The experts are in, and they all agree on that the new bubble in the market is the developers' salaries.

Startups are raising more money than ever, at incredibly high valuations, which increases the cost of developers, thus forcing other startups to raise even more money at an even crazier valuation.

It would seem that the only way to attract development talent is to be the hottest startup out there and splash the cash. But it's not.

You're one step away from meeting your best partner in business.
