MEAN Stack Developer
Today, the internet is fueled with the popular tech stacks amidst the community of developers increasing day by day. The foundation stone for laying such tech stacks is evolving due to the surge of technological advancement preceding the nature of the applications required to rule the market these days. Hence, the majority of these user-centric applications are powered by the web. Thus, the developers have adapted a certain way of enhancing the applications by selecting specialized tech stacks that empower the web. We might have come across such popular job profiles using known as MERN or MEAN stack Developers. In this article, we would be focusing mainly on MEAN stack developers and what is meant by MEAN stack. Let's take it forward.
What is MEAN Stack?
Let's look at the prerequisites of what a developer needs to have to get familiar with the MEAN stack.
Before moving to discover what the MEAN stack developers are capable of building and how can you be one of them, you need to be familiar with the technologies comprising the MEAN stack. Let's take a sneak peek into these technologies.
What is MongoDB?
MongoDB is a cross-platform and open-source database that is written in C++. It stores data in Binary JSON format consisting of data storage in the form of key-value pairs. It is also called a NoSQL database because of its document-oriented nature. A document stored in MongoDB resembles just like the object in OOPS.
What is ExpressJS?
What is AngularJS?
AngularJS allows the developers to opt for HTML as template language thereby letting them extend the syntax of HTML to express the native and divergent components of your desired applications. Moreover, AngularJS possesses unique features like injection dependency and data binding methods that are used to eliminate the task of writing plenty of lines of codes and binding them into one component.
What is Node.js?
Additionally, Node.js uses a model that follows a non-blocking and event-driven approach. This model makes it easier and efficient, lightweight, and perfect to carry out the data-intensive and real-time application that runs across various distributed systems be it on macOS, Windows, or Linux.
MEAN stack architecture
The architecture of the MEAN stack is depicted in the above image. The primary function of the shown components of MEAN stack architecture is as follows:
Angular JS: The main task of angular is to accept requests and display the results to end-users.
NodeJS: It handles the requests constituting server and client.
Express JS: Makes database requests and fetches responses.
MongoDB: Used for storing and retrieving data.
To elaborate the procedure, the working methodology of the MERN stack is based on the following concept.
