About the Technology

Juggling languages mid-application can radically slow down a full-stack web project. The MEAN stack—MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node—uses JavaScript end to end, maximizing developer productivity and minimizing context switching. And you'll love the results! MEAN apps are fast, powerful, and beautiful.

Along the way, you'll get countless pro tips for building dynamic and responsive data-driven web applications!
