Open Source Tooling and Automation Part 3

What I did:

In this lab I follow the guide lines to create an simple node.js server and REST API using the lab module that I have been working on. Additionally I deployed my little server to run on the Heroku a free clouding hosting platform so I could show my work to professor via the blog on CDOT wiki.

What I learned:

It is difficult to say that I learned about server or API, but with just this brief introduction to REST api and node.js I understand that there is much more to it than  what I thought and I am eager to find some time and learn much more.

Difficulties:

While I was following professor`s instructions I cam across a but whenever I was trying to log in to Heroku using my Git Bash command line.
By researching this bug on the web I realize that I was not the only one having the same problem. What I discovered was that the newest version of git was having compatibility problems coupling with Heroku sistem therefore a possible solution was to use windows command line to access my Heroku account.


That was enough to get read of the problem and move along with my lab instructions.
