Discover how the MEAN development stack—MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, NodeJS—changes the architecture and semantics of building a web application. In this incisive video course, you’ll learn how NodeJS serves as the MEAN stack platform, ExpressJS acts as the web server, AngularJS delivers the user interface, and MongoDB provides persistence.

Presenter Scott Davis focuses on concepts rather than code to help dispel misconceptions about MEAN and about modern web development in general. You’ll learn how you can mix and match MEAN components, using jQuery Mobile instead of AngularJS, for instance. More importantly, you’ll understand that MEAN is not “one framework to rule them all,” but one of many sets of tools to help you solve web development problems.
