MEAN Stack is the latest flavour of the season, and unlike other flavours, this is here to stay. With leading companies like Facebook, Uber, LinkedIn etc. embracing MEAN, more and more coders are inclined towards learning it. As a matter of fact, coding bootcamps across the globe are witnessing an upheaval in the number of applicants interested in learning MEAN. While all this seems like a nod towards building bigger and better applications, what really is MEAN stack? And why is the world moving towards it? Well, let’s delve!
Before we begin with the benefits of MEAN, here’s some background on the technologies that make MEAN so powerful.
MongoDB: A schemaless NoSQL database system, that saves data in binary JSON format for making data passing between client and server, simple and seamless.
ExpressJS: Inspired by Sinatra, a popular Ruby framework, Express is a lightweight framework that lets you build web applications in Node. The goodness of Express lies in the multitude robust features it offers for building single and multi-page web applications.
Now that you know what encompasses a MEAN stack, let’s see what makes it a lucrative option.
1. As a MEAN Stack developer, your employability stakes get higher. With each of the MEAN technologies creating a niche of its own, the value of a developer who is skilled in the entire stack is unparalleled.
2. The incessant increase in the demand for building fast and scalable network applications is easily fulfilled with Node.js. According to Node.js Foundation Survey Results, Node.js is emerging as a universal platform used for web applications, IoT, and enterprise. Having this as one of the feathers in your hat will clearly broaden your pool of opportunities.
3. Things get exciting when you learn something that’s in demand. Things get even exciting when you master and play with what you learn. With an active developer community, this stack offers you more than just great opportunities, it offers you an ability to be more productive, while making you more versatile and in-demand.
To sum it up, with MEAN, you can build and rebuild apps that you believe in and you don’t have to stop anywhere.
