Experimenting with MEAN

I have been working on LAMP stack for almost a decade now. Lately there has been a lot of buzz about MEAN stack, hence I decided to give it a spin. The MEAN stack is based on MongoDB, Express.js, Angular, and Node.js technology.

There are various tutorials available online to learn MEAN. I particularly like the ones where you actually code and create a dummy project. I nailed down on https://thinkster.io/tutorials/mean-stack

You can find my project code at https://github.com/kurund/flapper-news

Conclusion
I was extremely impressed how easy it was to create a semi-complex project from scratch. Concepts are simple and if you love javascript, you will definitely want to use MEAN. Only think I am uncertain about is whether it will scale and support like LAMP stack.

But, I can’t wait to work on a live project using MEAN stack.
