Recent statistics suggest that an average person spends approximately 2 hours and 51 minutes per day on their mobile device. Also, people have a habit of checking their smartphones as soon as they wake up in the morning. When people see a notification from Facebook or TikTok, they start scrolling and pulling feeds even for hours.
Every time people see a notification popped-up on their smartphone, why there is an urge to check it immediately?

If you are a programmer, there is a high chance that you are using the Visual Studio Code for your development.

This is called multi-repo or many-repo. This process will continue until we end up creating many repositories as we need a single repository per package. After some time this becomes unmanageable.
Before moving further let's try creating a small application using ExpressJs.
Execute the below command in the newly created folder. This will create package.json file.
