Day 28 of Hack Reactor: Backing the Back-End

Somehow, 4 weeks have sailed by since my cohort started, and I can't even begin to process the amount of learning that's happened during that time.

Last week, we focused on back-end architecture and server-side techniques, specifically building a custom back-end in Node, implementing an ORM, understanding promises, and building databases. Next week, we move on to authentication and Angular.

I've enjoyed this back-end stuff more than I expected. I think partly because there are so many intellectual challenges associated with designing and configuring a back-end, and fewer of the semantic challenges that tend to accompany front-end work.
