Routing refers to determining how an application responds to a client request to a particular endpoint, which is a URI (or path) and a specific HTTP request method (GET, POST, and so on).
Each route can have one or more handler functions, which are executed when the route is matched.
Route definition takes the following structure:
app is an instance of express.
METHOD is an HTTP request method, in lowercase.
PATH is a path on the server.
HANDLER is the function executed when the route is matched.
// add proxy, so instead of looking at front end server, our api requests look at backend server
// call it prox, then add the loopback address and the backend server port
