Adding a probe to our Node.js example

Adding example probes to the Node.js/express-based application follows exactly the same pattern as the Python application. And like the Python example, the code and specifications for this are available at GitHub under the https://github.com/kubernetes-for-developers/kfd-nodejs project, associated with branch 0.3.0

The probes add nearly the same specification to the Node.js deployment:

livenessProbe:  httpGet:    path: /probes/alive    port: 3000  initialDelaySeconds: 1  periodSeconds: 5readinessProbe:   httpGet:    path: /probes/ready    port: 3000  initialDelaySeconds: 5  periodSeconds: 5
