  1. 24 minute TL/DR: make a node app, create a yaml file and execute 'gcloud app deploy' if and only if your app is 'hello world' level trivial. friendly advice to make video with most content related to title, which is what people search for.

  2. holy s……. what a voice frequency. Do you want the dogs of the neighbours commit suicide?

  3. Hi, I'm new to web programming. I just finished my first React MERN application that I learned on youtube. Now i have both Backend(Node js connecting to MongoDB) and Frontend(React).
    Is this going to work for me?

  4. using server.js but still getting 500 server error, i also have mentioned server.js in package,json

  5. Hi thanks to your explanations, I have deployed my app but when I try to open through the browser I get "Forbidden" error message. I do not have no clue, there is any chance to have a hint ?

  6. Thank you very much for mentioning my name. It was a surprise for me.
    And as always, this tutorial also looks awesome. Best of luck.
