Free Preview: Build an App From Scratch With JavaScript and the MEAN Stack

Introduction

01:02

Full-stack web development requires coding both a front-end for the browser and a back-end server. Using JavaScript for both parts of the app makes life a lot simpler for full-stack devs. That's where the MEAN stack (MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node.js) comes in. With the MEAN technologies, you can code a cutting-edge web app in JavaScript, from the front-end all the way down to the database.

In this course, you'll learn how to use the MEAN technologies to build full-stack web apps using only JavaScript (and its close cousin TypeScript). You'll start from absolute scratch, scaffolding an empty project, and build up a complete web app using the MEAN stack. You'll learn how to configure a MongoDB database, how to write a database abstraction layer, and how to create a REST API to make that data available to the front-end. On the client side, you'll learn how to structure an Angular app, how to create a service to connect with the back-end API, and how to implement each of the UI components that make a complete app.

It's easier than you think, so let's get started!
