I started learning Node through some of the amazing tutorials/walkthroughs on Scotch.io!

I'm currently learning from Andrew in Udemy.com . I have tried free resources for over an year. Ended up being in a dead end.

avoid callback hell with async / await. Why? It brings a 'synchronous' look to the code, making it easier to reason with.

One important distinction to make is, unlike most programming langs, node is async by default! (people, feel free to correct me, it's sth I am still confused by)

The description in nodejs.org is clear.

hahaha I never checked it. The moral of this story is, be humble when jumping into a new lang even if you have programmed heaps before.

Keep checking if your version is compatible with the tools installed in the project. You might need to switch to a different version.
