MEAN Full Stack- Components, Benefits, Importance and Career

A tech stack is a set of programming language and other software tools used to ease the process of software development. Because the IT ecosystem has been working on a large variety of applications. MEAN stack is one of them. 

WHAT IS MEAN STACK?

The MEAN stack is JavaScript-based framework for developing web applications. It is a user-friendly stack that is the ideal solution for building dynamic websites and applications. Unlike the traditional use of JavaScript (only on the front-end) it enables to use JavaScript on both front and back ends. 

COMPONENTS OF MEAN STACK

MEAN is the acronym of components  

  • MongoDB (Database management) 
  • Express.js (Backend development) 
  • Angular.js (Frontend development)  
  • Node.js (Backend development)

BENEFITS OF MEAN STACK

  • Possible to switch easily between server and client 
  • Highly versatile  
  • Ability to quickly develop a MVP (Minimum Viable Product) 
  • Cost effective  
  • Uses a single programming language 
  • Highly flexible  
  • Open source
  • Time saving  

WHY NEED A MEAN STACK

MEAN stack is suitable for more innovative and cutting edge web application. It provides advanced feature which can make development fast and easy. 

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT TO LEARN

The demand of MEAN stack development has increased due to it’s versatility of building a web and mobile application that is  fast and maintainable. The companies using MEAN stack are:

  • Accenture  
  • Sisence  
  • UNIQLO  
  • Onkore.Inc  

The average salary of a MEAN stack developer is ₹4L/year. 

CONCLUSION

MEAN is a technology that is constantly improving. It is also easy to use. This is definitely the much-needed technology of the future.
