Introduction to MEAN Web Development

Overview

The MEAN Stack is a set of JavaScript technologies used to build full-stack web applications for both startups and enterprises. Upon completion, students will come to understand the fundamentals of MongoDB: a NoSQL database, Express: a web application framework for Node.js, Angular: a front-end web framework, and Node: a server side runtime environment.

By the end of the workshop students will know how to build a Single-Page Application (SPA) with their own API and connect to a database.

Basic experience with web development and JavaScript will be helpful.

Master Key Concepts

  • Develop a Single Page Application using Angular
  • Route a Single Page Application
  • Design and build RESTful APIs using Node.js and Express
  • Create and interact with a MongoDB database
  • Build full-stack features
