Packts Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it. Web development is moving fast and to keep up to mark, you need a technology stack that is fast too. The MEAN stack includes MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node. js. These tools provide a rich environment to build advanced web applications in a short space of time. All the pieces of the MEAN stack are practically tried and tested in large and small-scale organizations. This Learning Path begins by covering the fundamentals of the baseline technologies you need to know to become a full stack web developer. You will know how to work with: NPM, Node. js, Express. js, and MongoDB. We then move on to creating scalable web apps with the MEAN stack and understand how to make all MEAN components work together. Finally, you’ll learn how to deploy apps to the cloud and make them available to the public. If you have no prior exposure to one of the most promising avenues of efficient web development, this Learning Path will help you get up to speed in no time. The goal of this Learning Path is to set you up with tried and tested full stack web development knowledge. This Learning Path is authored by some of the best in their fields.
