why is that in the module wrapper function code the file name and directory name are displayed whereas we are only exporting the log function? And the console.log methods are not inside the log function. How is that possible: accesing a part of code that is not exported? Thank you.

Agung Laksana says:

Hi Mosh, thanks for your great tutorial, I am junior iOS developer, and actually I have no experience in web development, I need to learn about node.js and before starting the course about node.js, I need to learn about javascript first. There is a topic in javascript called DOM (document object model). so before starting the course, Do I have to learn about DOM first? or is it OK if I just learn the basic and advance syntax of Javascript like object, Map etc etc, I want to understand node.js as fast as I can actually. Thanks in advance :)

Saurabh Gangamwar says:

Best video on the internet for Node.js thanks, man.
