The hidden components of Web Caching
Caching allows you to increase application processing speed. Storing a copy of the previously fetched data or computed results increases processing speed. This enables future requests to be served faster. It is an effective architectural pattern, because most programs access the same data or instructions over and over.
Introduction to Mongoose for MongoDB
Mongoose is an Object Data Modeling (ODM) library for MongoDB and Node.js. It manages relationships between data, provides schema validation, and is used to translate between objects in code and the representation of those objects in MongoDB.

Nick is awesome! He's very knowledgeable, reliable, and fast. I needed help with my bootcamp project, writing code for D3 chart and debugging Flask API code. Nick came to the rescue. Not only did he deliver but he went above and beyond to explain why he was doing things in a certain way. It was a great way to get help with my project and supplement my learning. I will use Nick again in the future and recommend him to anyone!!!!

Took the time to instruct me on how to approach the problem. Some bugs on my end stopped us from diving fully into the code. But he gave me some good direction on where to dive into this.

Nick was great. He gave me exactly what I was looking for - expert advice in choosing the right tech stack and approach for my serverless project. He helped me get unstuck by advising on key concepts and specific tools. Before our call I was confused by all the tools and architectural approaches. I was fortunate to have Nick pick up exactly where I had left off. With my understanding of the tooling ecosystem from many hours of research, Nick brought necessary strategic guidance. He had hands-on experience with all the tools I identified. By the end of our call I was able to boil it all down to a simple question so I could decide which tool and approach to use. Invaluable!
