Who This Book Is For
What You Will Learn
Build modern, end-to-end web applications by employing the full stack web development solution of MEAN
Learn NoSQL databases and separate the client logic from the server code
Build a complex application from start to finish and work with monetary data in MongoDB
Handle a multi-user type system and authorize your users to access control list
Implement a chat application from scratch using Socket.IO
Create distributed applications and use the power of server-side rendering in your applications
Extend a project with a real-time bidding system using WebSockets
The MEAN stack is a combination of the most popular web development frameworks available—MongoDB, Angular, Express, and Node.js used together to offer a powerful and comprehensive full stack web development solution. It is the modern day web dev alternative to the old LAMP stack. It works by allowing AngularJS to handle the front end, and selecting Mongo, Express, and Node to handle the back-end development, which makes increasing sense to forward-thinking web developers. The MEAN stack is great if you want to prototype complex web applications.
This book will enable you to build a better foundation for your AngularJS apps. Each chapter covers a complete, single, advanced end-to-end project. You’ll learn how to build complex real-life applications with the MEAN stack and few more advanced projects. You will become familiar with WebSockets and build real-time web applications, as well as create auto-destructing entities. Later, we will combine server-side rendering techniques with a single page application approach. You’ll build a fun project and see how to work with monetary data in Mongo. You will also find out how to a build real-time e-commerce application.
By the end of this book, you will be a lot more confident in developing real-time, complex web applications using the MEAN stack.
Style and approach
This book is filled with independent hands-on projects that teach you how to build real-life end-to-end complex web applications using the MEAN stack.
