Announcing MEAN Stack Online Course in Partnership with edX
Today we’re excited to announce a partnership with edX, an organization that offers online courses from the world’s best universities and institutions. We’ve partnered with them to create a course on the MEAN stack.
The MEAN Stack is a powerful software bundle that allows developers to rapidly prototype and deploy performant web applications.
- M = MongoDB: the popular database
- E = Express.js: a lightweight web application framework
With MongoDB, developers can store documents in a JSON-like format, write JSON queries on the ExpressJS and NodeJS based server, and seamlessly pass JSON documents to the AngularJS frontend.
The course will give a broad introduction to this popular web and mobile app development toolkit. It will teach the basic concepts of the MEAN stack while walking you through building a shopping cart application. It’s taught by Valeri Karpov, the MongoDB engineer who develops Mongoose and who coined the term “MEAN Stack.”
