Angular & NodeJS – The MEAN Stack

What will I learn?

  • Build real Angular + NodeJS applications
  • Understand how Angular works and how it interacts with Backends
  • Connect any Angular Frontend with a NodeJS Backend
  • Use MongoDB with Mongoose to interact with Data on the Backend
  • Use ExpressJS as a NodeJS Framework
  • Provide a great user experience by using Optimistic Updating on the Frontend
  • Improve any Angular (+ NodeJS) application by adding Error Handling
What is it about?

Create modern, scalable and high-speed Web Applications with Angular (formerly named Angular 2, now just “Angular”) and NodeJS + Express + MongoDB.

Angular 1 and NodeJS, together with ExpressJS (a NodeJS Framework) and MongoDB formed the very popular MEAN stack. Now is the time to dive into MEAN 2.0 and replace Angular 1 with Angular 2+.

Benefit from the many improvements and advantages Angular offers you: Speed, ease of development, highly reactive, awesome support for asynchronous operations, great scalability and more!
And combine these advantages with the power of a NodeJS + Express + MongoDB backend!

Learning How to
  • Set up a NodeJS + Express + MongoDB + Angular Application with the help of the Angular CLI
  • Use NodeJS and Express efficiently
  • Build reusable Components in Angular and create a reactive User Experience with the Tools provided by Angular
  • Connect your NodeJS (or any other language!) backend with your Angular App through Angular’s HttpClient service
  • Provide appropriate endpoints on your Backend, for your Frontend to consume
  • Add advanced features like file upload and pagination
  • Make your Application more secure by implementing Users, Authentication as well as Authorization
  • Handle Errors gracefully
  • And much more…!

This hands-on concept allows you to not get stuck in the theory, but instantly see real implementation examples!

Requirement
  • Concepts behind NodeJS, Express and MongoDB (with Mongoose) will be refreshed in this course but as this course is focused on the connection of these technologies with Angular, basic knowledge about them is strongly recommended
  • HTML, CSS and basic JavaScript knowledge is assumed throughout this course
  • NO advanced or expert knowledge about any of these topics is assumed or required
