With the launch of MEAN stack we aim to create full-stack developers for start-ups and product engineering organisations.”

According to Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2016, Javascript is the most popular programming language on earth. And even Back-end developers today are most likely to use Javascript than any other language. The MEAN Stack program will encompass the various aspects of Web app development and covers the following objectives: Design responsive Web apps using HTML5, CSS3, and various JavaScript frameworks such as Bootstrap & AngularJS, Develop Web apps using JavaScript frameworks such as, ExpressJS, NodeJS, & CommonJS, Create and consume Web services using RestAPI, Implement various testing tools, such as Mocha, Chai, Jasmine, and Protractor while developing Web apps.

MEAN stack is extremely quick prototype to work with. Node.js allows the programmer to use Javascript on the backend as well as the frontend, thus saving the programmer form learning separate languages. During the projects, the students will get to work on latest technologies like AngularJS, Bootstrap, JQuery, JS, HTML5 & CSS 3, ExpressJS, CommonJS, REST API, Yeoman, Gulp & NodeJS, MongoDB.
