Express is a minimal and flexible Node.js web application framework, providing a robust set of features for building single- and multi-page, and hybrid web applications. 

Advanced Express Web Application Development starts by laying the foundations of the software development journey, as readers are shown how to drive-out features under test. Readers are then shown how to create a web API and a consuming client, and will be introduced to a real-time element in their application. The book then delves into the process of incrementally improving applications, tackling security, introducing SSL support, and handling security vulnerabilities. Next, readers will explore the process of scaling and then decoupling applications. 

Advanced Express Web Application Development covers the following topics:

Chapter 1: Foundations
Chapter 2: Building a Web API
Chapter 3: Templating
Chapter 4: Real-time Communication
Chapter 5: Security
Chapter 6: Scaling
Chapter 7: Production 

This book is aimed at experienced JavaScript developers who want to build highly scalable, real-world applications using Express. The reader must have some experience with Node.js and JavaScript MVC web development frameworks, along with a basic understanding of Redis and MongoDB.
