Part 2. Building a Node web application

Node.js underpins any MEAN application, so that’s where we’ll start. Throughout part 2 we’ll build a data-driven web application using Node.js, Express, and MongoDB. We’ll learn the individual technologies as we go, steadily building up the application to a point where we have a fully functioning Node web application.

In chapter 3 we’ll get going by creating and setting up a MEAN project, getting acquainted with Express, before getting a much deeper understanding of Express by building out a static version of the application in chapter 4. Taking what we’ve learned about the application so far, in chapter 5 we’ll work with MongoDB and Mongoose to design and build the data model we’ll need.

Good application ...
