$39 $15

Build full stack JavaScript apps with the MEAN stack, using Node.js, AngularJS, Express and MongoDB

Product Description

Learn all of the different aspects of full stack JavaScript development using the MEAN stack. We’re not talking about any generators or MEAN frameworks here, we’re talking about a full understanding of MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js. Throughout this course, we’ll show you how to use each of these technologies, and how to use them together.

Build Great JavaScript Applications using MongoDB, Express, AngularJS and Node.js

The overall aim of the course is to enable  you confidently build all different types of applications using the MEAN stack.

To do this, the course is divided into four sections, each section focusing on a different goal. The four sections all work together building a full application, with an overall outcome of showing how to architect and build complete MEAN applications.

The breakdown of sections looks like this:

  1. By the end of section one, you will be able to set up a web-server using Node.js and Express, to listen for requests and return responds.
  2. By the end of section 2, you will be able to design NoSQL databases and work with MongoDB from the command line and from Node and Express.
  3. After section 3 you will be able to design and build robust REST APIs using Node.js, Express, and MongoDB, following industry best practices.
  4. By the end of section four, you will be able to build high-quality AngularJS single page applications (SPAs), following industry best practices.
  5. When you have finished with section five you will able to add authentication to the MEAN stack, enabling users to log in and manage sessions.

Along the way, there are various activities, so you can be as hands-on as you like. You’ll get the most out of the course if you follow along and code as you go, but if you want to speed through it the source code is supplied with each video (where relevant).

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Build full stack applications in JavaScript using the MEAN technologies
  • Architect MEAN stack applications from scratch
  • Design and build RESTful APIs using Node.js, Express, and MongoDB
  • Create and use MongoDB databases
  • Develop modular, maintainable Single Page Applications using AngularJS

What is the target audience?

This course is meant for anyone who wants to start building full stack JavaScript applications in Node.js, AngularJS, Express and MongoDB. It starts from the basic concepts of each technology, so a user experienced in a particular area will be able to speed through these sections. This course assumes you have some JavaScript knowledge, and does not teach JavaScript itself.
