This competency area covers an understanding of Templates for Server Side Rendering (SSR), Scaffolding, and securing a Web App with Express.js.
- Templates for Server Side Rendering (SSR) - Advanced understanding of Server-side rendering (SSR) and templates used in the process of rendering web pages on a server and passing them to the browser (client-side), instead of rendering them in the browser.
- Scaffolding - Advanced knowledge of Scaffolding, i.e creating the skeleton structure of application.
- Securing a Web App with Express.js - Knowledge of security best practices for Express applications in production, i.e use of TLS, Helmet, not using vulnerable versions, etc.
