Solving the 4 Problem Categories of Web Development with the MEAN Stack

Wednesday 19 Feb 2014 from 5:30pm - 7:30pm

If you're building a new web application, the problems that you run into generally fit into one of 4 categories:

1) Prototyping: I want to build something quickly
2) Adapting: I want to be able to easily iterate on my code base
3) Testing: I want to make sure that the app works
4) Scaling: I want to utilize server resources efficiently

This presentation will provide a high-level overview of how the MEAN stack, and in particular Node.js and npm, solve each of these pain points.

Valeri Karpov wrote the first blog post about the MEAN stack in April 2013, after building out tech stacks for The Ascot Project and Bookalokal using it. He maintains the mean-stack-skeleton repo on github, and currently works as a Kernel Engineer for MongoDB, where he's helping to build out an internal continuous integration platform.
