Hi first of All big thanks for this detailed video. I am following the lesson I am getting error at the end of part 9 where u run the “npm start” command.

> zzzas@1.0.0 start
> nodemon --watch backend --exec babel-node backend/server.js
 [nodemon] 2.0.20
[nodemon] to restart at any time, enter `rs`

      throw e;

I tried several solutions from YouTube and stakeoverflow.com but none of them worked. Please can you guide how to get rid of this error.

i just figure out what was the issue in the “.babelrc” file I made a mistake, instead of “targets” I just wrote “target”. Once this changed , saved it and ran “npm start” everything worked fine.
Thank you once again for lesson . I will continue if find any issue will get InTouch with you.
