Let's build a website with Node.js on Azure

πŸ“Ί 019 - Tierey Cyren πŸŽ™οΈ Frank Boucher

Starting from nothing, Tiemey will create a new application in JavaScript using Express and then show how to deploy it in Azure using Visual Studio Code. Because Frank just get started with JavaScript, Tiemey explains all the npm commands to initialize the project and provide many interesting tips along the way.

In a first time, the website will be deployed into a App Service (aka. web app), for some reason the creation of the resources was failing from VSCode so Tiemey created the resources directly from the Azure Portal and then deploy the code after using the extension.

Finally, the Express App will be modified to be dynamic receiving a parameter and changing the display to xkcd comic display.
