NodeJs is a javascript runtime, that helps you execute javascript code. Javascript was created to run only in the browser, but Nodejs makes it possible to execute javascript outside of the browser like on a web server. It enables you to create a web server using it's http API. ExpressJs is built on top of node's http module, It makes it easy to develop web applications with javascript.
