Getting MEAN teaches readers how to develop web applications end-to-end using the MEAN stack. You'll systematically discover each technology in the MEAN stack as you build up an application one layer at a time, just as you'd do in a real project.
About the Technology
About the Book
Getting MEAN 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, 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.
