  • If you want to become a dazzling MEAN stack developer, where should you start?

    I am a beginner developer who has been researching various stacks. Based on advice of my friends and the web, I realized that MEAN expert would be something I would want to work for. I understand that there are other stacks, but felt this aligned most closely with my goals.

    I have no prior programming knowledge. Where do I start? Should I first learn Javascript or delve head first into MongoDB, Express, Angular, and Node?

    You must ... MUST know HTML, CSS and Javascript before you go any further as these are the absolute essentials of web development today.Get a $29/month subscription at Pluralsight.com because in my opinion, they have some of the best training. There is also a lot of free training on YouTube, but you have to find it and that takes a while, I'd just pay for 1 month, learn all the basic courses of the MEAN stack components and then watch the courses where they use all 4 to build a full end-to-end application.
