Getting MEAN with Mongo, Express, Angular, and Node teaches you how to develop web applications using the MEAN stack.

First, you'll create the skeleton of a static site in express and node and then push it up to a live web server. Next, you'll add a MongoDB database and build an API before using Angular to handle data manipulation and application logic in the browser. Finally, you'll add an authentication system to the application, using the whole stack. When you finish, you'll have all the skills you need to build a dynamic data-driven web application.

Traditional web dev stacks use a different programming language in every layer, resulting in a complex mashup of code and frameworks. Together, the MongoDB database, the Express and AngularJS frameworks, and Node.js constitute the MEAN stack - a powerful platform that uses only one language, top to bottom: JavaScript. Developers and businesses love it because it's scalable and cost-effective. End users love it because the apps created with it are fast and responsive. It's a win-win-win!

What's inside:

  • Full-stack development using JavaScript
  • Responsive web techniques
  • Everything you need to get started with MEAN
  • Best practices for efficiency and reusability
