I’m a believer that you can learn a new skill in about 20 hours of deep study.

This time we’re focused on the MEAN stack. This is because my Azure clients may want be to support a MEAN based PaaS/SaaS implementation as it’s the shiny new stack being used by organizations such as Microsoft, Yahoo!, LinkedIn, eBay, Dow Jones, and the New York Times.

MEAN is a free and open-source JavaScript software stack for building dynamic web sites and web applications. The MEAN stack is MongoDB, Express.js, Angular, and Node.js. Because all components of the MEAN stack support programs are written in JavaScript, MEAN applications can be written in one language for both server-side and client-side execution environments.

The components of the MEAN stack are as follows: * MongoDB, a NoSQL database * Express.js, a web application framework that runs on Node.js * Angular.js, a JavaScript MVC framework that runs in browser JavaScript engines * Node.js, an execution environment for event-driven server-side and networking applications

How I studied the MEAN stack

5 hours of modules and assessment in a Microsoft Virtual Academy course. * Introduction to Node.js * Introduction to Express * Express and Databases * Building a Front End for Your Express Web Apps * Debugging and Deploying Node.js * Extending Node.js with Azure Web Jobs
