How to Manage Session using Node.js and Express

Session handling in any web application is very important and is a must-have feature, without it, we won’t be able to track user and it’s activity.

At the time of writing article, the latest version of Express is 4.16.4.

What we are buiding

Continuous Integration and deployment (CI/CD Pipeline) with Jenkins and Node.js

Write code, test and deploy

This is one of the common development cycles of any developer.

Most of the time testing and deployment steps do not change frequently and in order to keep the developer focus on writing code, we do the automation of testing and deployment.

This automation is called “continuous integration and deployment” OR CI/CD Pipeline.

In this tutorial, we will learn how to set up continuous integration and deployment (CI/CD) infrastructure for the Node.js project.


I am going to use Jenkins as the automation tool and Github as source code management system.

Jenkins is free for use but we require public server in order to integrate the Github repository.

For the server, I will be using $5 droplet on Digitalocean. In case you wish to buy it, you …
