We will start by setting up our server with Node.js and Express, creating a WebSocket server using Socket.IO, and then building a React front-end that will communicate with the server to display real-time messages.
We will cover the following topics:
-- Setting up the server with Node.js and Express
-- Creating a WebSocket server using Socket.IO
-- Building the front-end with React and displaying messages in real-time
-- Adding user authentication and chat room functionality
-- Deploying the application to a production environment
