Event description


MEAN Stack Weekend

Get started learning and using the MEAN Stack in our MEAN Weekend training course. This full weekend allows you to build fast, responsive, and maintainable full-stack websites using JavaScript. The stack uses four innovative frameworks: MongoDB for rapid data access, Express for simple web development, Angular for fluid UI, and Node for speed.

Even if you've had this or a similar workshop before, you will want to take this one. We've updated the content to cover all of the latest versions of each framework: Angular 2, Express 4, Node 6, and MongoDB. We've removed tiresome lecture and theory and replaced it with more hands-on labs and quizzes.

This class is not for programming newbies. We will move fast, so you should already know JavaScript. We won't spend any time teaching it except to explain the new language features. Over the course of a weekend, we will build a small but functional website that makes full use of each framework. Our site will have a responsive Google Material Design based UI, which looks good on the desktop or mobile. A fast MongoDB database which uses location and weighted queries. Our Node backend uses ES-2015, a modern JavaScript.

Being able to show what you know is important in today's competitive job market. So, we will deploy the website to a public using a free Heroku account so that you can show your work. All of the source code is yours to keep so that you can continue to explore it and expand your knowledge.
