By making the effort to understand the inner workings of a web development framework, we open ourselves to insights about the various ways of not only the framework itself but also about popular programming algorithms and their design decisions. An integral aspect of how Node.js works under the hood, event loop-based apparatus for accomplishing asynchronous behavior.
In this blog, we’re going to discuss the Node.js project structure and cover the best practices that help you to organize and manage your Node.js applications.
