MEAN Stack - Where can I find a MEAN Yoda?

I just read something about the MEAN Stack and I think that is the direction I need to push my skill set towards.  By no means do I want to abandon Java but knowing the MEAN stack seems to be golden ticket at the moment to interesting projects.

"MEAN" stands for "MongoDB Express.js AngularJS Node.js"


Now the question is what is the best way to get started...


Any input anyone has would be greatly appreciated.

The Return to AngularJS

Okay so I was toying with Node.js for a while because it was becoming useful in my day to day.  That has kind of fallen of because I am not working with it.  Node.js is really cool and really powerful but now I think I want to delve a little AngularJS.  At this point I am not sure what the next useful technology for my career is going to be so I am trying to dabble in a bunch.  In my next position I would really like some type of newer JavaScript framework to be a part of it.

It may seem like a step back but I going to redo the Code School tutorial for Angular.  It will be a refresher but a good place to jump off from because things like that are how I like to learn.
