To get you up to speed and demo some of the magic behind MEAN, SFHTML5 put on a special three-speaker event that provides a technical orientation, an introduction to some of the important concepts, and plenty of live code.
Part 1: Orientation to the MEAN Stack & Node
Ward Bell, VP of Technology at IdeaBlade, begins with a tour of the MEAN stack, touching on each technology’s role and contribution to our end-product web application, then delves specifically into the role of Node/Express. He starts us off and builds the initial API for the app.
Part 2: Adjusting to Changing Tides with MongoDB
Next, Matt Green, co-founder of Thinkster.io, walks us through the basics of Mongo by coding some queries to support a front-end feature. As the meetup page asks, “Tired of migrating tables every time a feature needs to be added? Have you been told your "big data" just isn't big enough and now you need to add columns to store more information?” Find out how MongoDB can help!
Part 3: Sneaking Angular into an Existing App
