Great tutorial, except some parts are outdated.
in the index.jade, doctype 5 is deprecated, doctype html is working

Good tutorial, I'm feeling positive to go from Node.js into the world of Express, and that is always a good start.

Great tutorial that made me chuckle and learn at the same time–in the words of Owen Wilson, "wow"!
