I’m very happy to announce that my second book is now available through the Manning Early Access Program (MEAP).
The book is called Getting MEAN with Mongo, Express, Angular and Node. Getting MEAN goes step-by-step through the journey of building a web application on the MEAN stack, covering each of the four core technologies and more.
I find the stack to be great for rapid prototyping, taking an idea and turning it into reality. Approached in the right way you can build up an application step by step, adding the right technology layers at the right time.
Here’s some blurb about what’s inside
- Responsive web techniques to deploy on multiple platforms simultaneously
- Application design for single page web apps and multi-page sites
- Everything you need to get started with Node.js, Express, MongoDB and Angular (MEAN)
- Best practices to structure your code for efficiency and reusability
