When it comes to web applications in Node.js, one library is almost always involved: Express. But it is by far not the only possible solution to create a modern web application based on Node.js. In this talk, I will introduce Nest.js, a modern framework inspired by Angular. It is written in TypeScript and follows a lot of patterns you already know from client side programming. I will show you how you can structure your application in order to get a flexible and future-proof layout of your application. Nest follows a modular strategy which allows you to add plugins and modules as needed. A typical example is the connection to a database. We will also have a look on how to extend your application with the help of some 3rd party plugins.
