    Comments about oreilly MEAN Web Development, 2nd Edition:

    The book takes the reader from the basics of all MEAN technologies and builds upon them one by one to create a single connected application, featuring Node.js, Angular 2 and MongoDB. The book further extends on leveraging the ExpressJS and Mongoose libraries to build sustainable applications, and user authentication.

    This is the second book from Amos Haviv on the MEAN technology stack and features a great intro to Angular 2. Amos is known for his pioneering work on building a boilerplate which evolved to an established framework with Node.js, MongoDB and AngularJS. He created the MEAN.JS project and his knowledge on Full Stack technologies is impressive.
