Everything you need to know to build flawless and robust websites with the MEAN stack

Building a website or mobile app using modern technologies can be a daunting task. Choosing and installing the tools alone can take hours of frustration, and code might not be very efficient. But with the MEAN stack at your aid, you can make the most of JavaScript to create websites and apps that are high in performance, unbeaten in quality, and easy on you.

Mastering MEAN Web Development gives you a start-to-finish solution for using modern technologies, writing high quality code, and deploying a live website with the MEAN stack.

This video course uses the mean-seed Yeoman generator to equip you with all the modern tools and workflows. It shows you the best practices of using Angular directives and writing automated tests right from the start. You will first see how to get a scaffolded out functioning website and then add in custom code and tests to make it go live. You will then learn how to go further with Grunt.js commands to build and test your application. With this course, you will learn the three core frontend languages (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) and dive into some more tricky topics to successfully build a full stack application complete with a database layer, backend server, and frontend client.

By the end of this course, you will be building websites that look good and perform great in no time.

What You Will Learn

  • Run Yeoman’s generator-mean-seed to seed your application and push it to GitHub version control
  • Build an AngularJS directive for modular and reusable code and pass in attributes for customization
  • Write Angular unit tests, see code coverage and run your code with confidence
  • Make your app highly functional with Bower (frontend) and NPM (backend) modules
  • Build a robust API that accesses the database swiftly using Node.js
  • Use Protractor to write end-to-end automated tests to simulate real user interaction with your website
  • Set up Continuous Integration and deploy your site live to the public and see them go “Wow!”
