Building Modern Apps with the MERN Stack and Google Cloud Platform

PublishedSeptember 5, 2018

Users increasingly demand a far richer experience from web applications – expecting the same level of performance and interactivity they get with native desktop and mobile apps. At the same time, there's pressure on developers to deliver new applications faster and continually roll-out enhancements, while ensuring that the application is highly available and can be scaled appropriately when needed.

Fortunately, there’s a set of open source technologies using JavaScript that make all of this possible.

In this on-demand webinar you will learn about the two dominant JavaScript web app stacks – MEAN (MongoDB, Express, Angular, Node.js) and MERN (MongoDB, Express, React, Node.js) and how to implement these web stacks on Google Cloud Platform.

These technologies are also used outside of the browser – delivering the best user experience, regardless of whether accessing your application from the desktop, from a mobile app, or even using your voice.

After viewing the on-demand webinar, you will come away with:

  • An overview of Google Cloud Platform
  • An understanding of the technologies that comprise the MEAN and MERN stacks and how they’re used in combination.
  • How to get started building your own apps using these stacks
  • Some of the decisions to make:
    • Angular vs Angular2 vs ReactJS
    • Javascript vs ES6 vs Typescript
  • What should be implemented in the front-end vs the back-end
