Hi @minakiroollos,

ExpressJS is a web application framework for NodeJS. That’s what mainly makes the difference between Express JS and Node JS. The former provides various features that make web application development fast and easy, which otherwise takes more time using only the latter.

So with that in mind, knowing the basics of NodeJS is a must if you want to use Express in your app.

Hi there,

I would also recommend the following path:

  • Make sure that you know JavaScript well before jumping into Node.js
  • Once you know the basics you can then move to Node.js
  • Then once you have some solid knowledge of Node.js you can then move to Express as well

Here is a great JavaScript roadmap that I could suggest checking out:
