Node.js and MEAN stack tutorial reviewed

Staying on top of tech trends is part of our jobs.  The days of just knowing say... COBOL and that is all you know are long gone.  If you are not expanding your skill set through regular if not daily learning you a falling behind.  Everyone has there own method of learning and you should find what works best for you.  If it is reading books then check out https://www.safaribooksonline.com/. If it is taking online classes there are sites like https://www.udemy.com/.  Do what works for you but always be learning because not only it is cool learn new stuff but your career as a programmer requires it.

...Rant about continuous education over...

First off I am not a Node.js rock star, but I know the power of Node.js and the rising popularity of it.  Being able to say I was a master of the JavaScript and Node.js universe would would be amazing.  Which is why I learn about it even though my day job doesn't have anything to do with node.  Although I do like to throw in some Node.js from time to time for utility applications.

When you see charts like this on Indeed.com there is no denying that there is demand for people who learn Node.js:




So along comes this Node.js Tutorial which I of course have to read and follow:
https://blog.udemy.com/node-js-tutorial/


The author, Moshfegh, clearly knows he stuff and is passionate about helping people join him in the Node.js ecosystem.  He doesn't just write about Node.js but also covers the entire MEAN stack. (MongoDB Express.js Angular.js Node.js)  Before Node.js JavaScript only executed in browsers but then in 2009 that barrier was shattered.  With JavaScript on the back-end and the front-end engineers can become experts in one language and create quality code that follows the same standards on both tiers.  While I am tempted to go more into the wonders of Node.js and the MEAN stack I must defer to the tutorial because he is better at it then I am.  Hopefully with his tutorial and a little practice I will be able to teach others.  The blog post is just the beginning.  The author is creating his own course on https://www.udemy.com/ to expand upon the material he was able to cover in a blog post.  So if you enjoyed the post like I did you will be able to learn more with a course of the same level of quality.


Happy Learning.
