1.1 Code a REST API With Koa and TypeScript

Have you been creating Node web apps or APIs and want to try an alternative to the same old tools and frameworks? Tired of the endless stack of callback to callbacks that come along with Express apps? If so, then the Koa framework might be just the thing to turn your day around.

Koa is a new framework created by the same people that created Express. The difference is that it has been created from the ground up to use the latest features in JavaScript (aka ECMAScript 2015+), including the latest way to handle asynchronous programming: async and await. In this course, you'll learn how to get up and running by building a fully functioning REST API from scratch.
