Learn everything you need to know to develop a retail application using MongoDB, Node.js and the MEAN Stack. Want to be a full-stack JavaScript engineer? This computer science course will give you a broad introduction to several of the most popular web and mobile app development toolkits, including MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, and Node.js. Together, these tools are called the “MEAN stack.”

This course will teach you the basic concepts of the MEAN stack while walking you through building a shopping cart application. This online store will enable users to search for products, add them to their cart, and check out using Stripe, an online payment processor. You’ll build your own REST API (Representational State Transfer Application Programming Interface) server from scratch using solid MongoDB schema design principles, as well as a web application using AngularJS and a hybrid mobile application using the Ionic framework.

When you complete the course, you will receive a discount to MongoDB Professional Certification, enabling you to demonstrate your skills, show recruiters and hiring managers your expertise, and earn a spot in the MongoDB Certified Professional Finder.

No prior experience with any of the MEAN stack technologies needed. The only prerequisite is a basic knowledge of the JavaScript programming language.

What you'll learn:

- Installing and working with MongoDB and Node.js

- MongoDB schema design fundamentals

- Building REST APIs with Node.js and Express

- Building single page applications with AngularJS

- Building mobile apps with the Ionic framework
