Build fast, robust, and maintainable modern full-stack web applications using MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node.js.
Key Features
Build highly scalable, asynchronous, and event-driven APIs
Develop a user authentication system with MEAN
Build a full-fledged application using the MEAN stack
Book Description
MongoDB, Express, Angular and Node.js Fundamentals is a practical guide to the tried-and-true production-ready MEAN stack, with tips and best practices. The book begins by demystifying the MEAN architecture. You’ll take a look at the features of the JavaScript libraries, technologies, and frameworks that make up a MEAN stack.
With this book, you’ll not only learn how to develop highly scalable, asynchronous, and event-driven APIs quickly with Express and Node.js, but you’ll also be able put your full-stack skills to use by building two full-fledged MEAN applications from scratch. You’ll understand how to build a blogging application using the MEAN stack and get to grips with user authentication using MEAN. As you progress through the chapters, you’ll explore some old and new features of Angular, such as pipes, reactive forms, modules and optimizing apps, animations and unit testing, and much more.
By the end of the book, you’ll get ready to take control of the MEAN stack and transform into a full-stack JavaScript developer, developing efficient web applications using Javascript technologies.
