The MEAN Stack (Mongo, Express, Angular and Node) has taken the open-source world by storm. Many developers consider it to be "the next big thing" in the world of building Web-based applications. This workshop will embrace your inner JavaScript and build a simple application from scratch using the MEANJS package, including tests against the server-side API and the client-side UI. You'll discuss how Node works on the server, how the various Node packages combine, and examine one such package (MeanJS) that coalesces several Node packages together to create a (somewhat) seamless development experience.

You will learn:

  • How to build Node server-side APIs
  • About using Mongo for storage
  • About AngularJS for the front-end
