Lately I have been really getting into a new web application stack referred to as the M.E.A.N stack. To give you a
The acronym stands for the following:
- E: ExpressJS – A Node.js application framework.
This stack has many benefits that caters itself to the new Web 3.0 movement where the Internet of Things is
radically changing old paradigms on how web applications should be built. For example, the M.E.A.N stack requires a total
separation between the Front end application and the Backend server via RESTful API’s. This provides the ability for
multiple front end applications to be built on top of a single backend REST service.
When learning how to build a M.E.A.N web application, one thing that frustrated me was the lack of a complete walkthrough
tutorials on how to build an app within this architecture. I was able to find plenty of documentation over the atomic
pieces of M.E.A.N (such as plenty of documentation and videos over AngularJS), but it was really up to me to put all the
pieces together to build an application. I created this presentation and video as a COMPLETE walkthrough on how to get
your application started.
I hope you enjoy it.
