How to Call async/await functions in parallel

How to Call async/await functions in parallel

Question: How to Call async/await functions in parallel?
We can use await on Promise.all()

let [someResult, anotherResult, anotherResult3] = await Promise.all([someCall(), anotherCall(), another3Call()]);

const promise1 = Promise.resolve(3);
const promise2 = 42;
const promise3 = new Promise((resolve, reject) => {
  setTimeout(resolve, 100, 'foo');
Promise.all([promise1, promise2, promise3]).then((values) => {

Question: How to read data from Image url and write in file synchronous?
First, We must need to install https and fs module in node.
https - Its for execute the https request.
fs - for save the file in local.

const https = require('https');
const fs = require('fs');

const file = fs.createWriteStream("file.jpg");//Create  a file
const request = https.get("", function(response) {
  response.pipe(file);//Add the image-content in file

Question: What is difference between app.listen and server.listen?
Both are used to start the server, for listening the request.

We need server.listen for create the request on https server.
var https = require('https');
var server = https.createServer(app).listen(config.port, function() {
    console.log('Https App started');

app.listen will create http server.
var express = require('express');
var app = express();

Question: How to return the json response?
You can use res.json() to return the response in APIs
exports.get_data = function(req, res) {  
    res.json({name: "web technology experts",description:"this is description"});

Question: How to auto-reload files in Node.js in Local server?
While doing the development, you do not want to re-start the node server each time, when you made changes.
For this you can use nodemon module.
Install the nodemon module
npm install nodemon -g 

start the node with nodemon instead of node
nodemon app.js

Question: How to create https request?
To Create the https server,
---first you need to install the modules like https, express and etc
---You need private/public keys for ssl

var https = require('https');
var privateKey  = fs.readFileSync('public/server.key', 'utf8');
var certificate = fs.readFileSync('public/file.crt', 'utf8');
var caCertificate = fs.readFileSync('public/chain.crt', 'utf8');
var credentials = {key: privateKey, cert: certificate, ca: caCertificate};
var httpsServer = https.createServer(credentials, app);  
var io = require('')(httpsServer);  
httpsServer.listen(443,function() {
    console.log('https listening on 443');
