The MEAN stack is a collection of the most popular modern tools for web development. This course will help you to build a custom e-commerce app along with several other applications. You will progress to creating several applications with MEAN.
The first module in this course will provide you with the skills you need to successfully create, maintain, and test a MEAN application. Starting with MEAN core frameworks, this course will explain each framework key concepts of MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js. We will walk through the different tools and frameworks that will help expedite your daily development cycles.
After this, the next module will show you how to create your own e-commerce application using the MEAN stack. It takes you step by step through the parallel process of learning and building to develop a production-ready, high-quality e-commerce site from scratch. It also shows you how to manage user authentication and authorization, check multiple payment platforms, add a product search and navigation feature, deploy a production-ready e-commerce site, and finally add your own high-quality feature to the site.
The final step in this course will enable you to build a better foundation for your AngularJS apps. You'll learn how to build complex real-life applications with the MEAN stack and a few more advanced projects. You will become familiar with WebSockets, build real-time web applications, create auto-destructing entities, and see how to work with monetary data in Mongo. You will also find out how to a build real-time e-commerce application.
