Before proceeding, you will need a development environment to write and execute your first Fastify code. You should configure:
- A text editor or an IDE such as VS Code
- Node.js v18 or above (you can find this here: https://nodejs.org/it/download/)
- An HTTP client to test out code; you may use a browser, CURL, or Postman
All the code examples in this chapter may be found on GitHub at https://github.com/PacktPublishing/Accelerating-Server-Side-Development-with-Fastify/tree/main/Chapter%201.
