Description:  In this class, the student will learn all of the different aspects of full stack JavaScript development using the MEAN stack.

The MEAN stack is a pure JavaScript stack comprised of four main technologies, with a cast of supporting technologies:

  • MongoDB—the database
  • Express—the web framework
  • Angular—the front-end framework
  • Node.js—the web server

The course will introduce the student to building entire web applications using MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node.js. Throughout this course attendees will focus on how to use each of the technologies in the stack, and how to use them together.


Part 1 –  Focus on setting the baseline with an introduction to full-stack development and designing a mean stack architecture.

Part 2 – Focus on building a node web application. The student will build a static website with node and express. They will go on to build a data model with mongodb and will write a REST API to expose the mongodb database to the application and will consume the API inside express.

Part 3 – The student to add a dynamic frontend with Angular. They will create a full Angular application with typescript. They will build a single-page application with Angular.

Part 4  – Will help the student learn about authenticating users, managing sessions, and securing APIs.

Part 5 – The student will use the technologies learned in this course to design, and develop their own project.
