1.1 Introduction

So you want to write modern web applications that have rich interactive user interfaces that communicate with RESTful APIs on the server. Well, I can't blame you. Because, after all, that is the pinnacle of modern web application development. But it can also be rather daunting because writing modern web apps requires a different approach than traditional web applications, but thankfully we have very good tools for writing modern single page applications. Hi, my name is Jeremy McPeak, and I invite you to spend a few hours with me as we build a modern web application. It's a cryptocurrency portfolio, and we'll write the whole thing with JavaScript and HTML templates. Yep, our client will be using Vue.js and we'll use Node.js and express the power our RESTful API. We'll start at the very beginning with a walkthrough of the tools that you need as well as a very brief intro to the world of cryptocurrencies. From there, we'll dive right in and start writing our application. We'll design and write UIs for displaying, editing, and deleting information, and we'll write the web API endpoints to make it all work. You'll learn how to authenticate users using authorization tokens and protect your API with custom middleware. You'll also learn how to use Vue Router to enforce security on your client. Now we have a lot of ground to cover. So, when you're ready, queue up the next video and we will get started.
