Web APIs with Sails
The "Web APIs with Sails" workshop focuses on creating Node.js web APIs with the Sails framework.The workshop begins with a beginner's introduction to the Sails framework, we touch on getting started with Sails, installing Sails in your machine, then touch on Sails framework philosophy, concepts, and features.We continue with the hands-on building of a Web API in Sails from Scratch and test the endpoints with Postman. We round up writing tests for the endpoints, setting up a GitHub action to run our tests when we push to GitHub then deploy our Web API to Heroku cloud.
Prerequisites:A good understanding of JavaScript and Node.js fundamentals. I prefer to use VS Code for code editing but you can use and editor you want. I expect a preinstall of Node.js and NPM
