MEAN Full Stack JavaScript Academy


JavaScript is the most widely used language worldwide. Even though it was introduced as a programming language for front-end development, i.e. scripting interactive effects inside web browsers, it is one of the most versatile and effective languages that can be used for full stack development today. It is a programming language for creating complex applications, spanning front-end experience, incorporating complex application logic and access databases. Indicatively, JavaScript has already overtaken Java in terms of StackOverFlow community size and it will likely keep growing. The Full Stack term refers to a collection of JavaScript based tools and technologies used to develop modern web applications. It stands for MongoDB, Express, Angular and Node.js and enables the use of JavaScript on both, the front- and back-end. The four main building blocks are:

  • MongoDB: a schema-less (document-oriented) NoSQL database
  • Express: a server-side JavaScript framework running on top of Node.js
  • Angular: a browser-independent JavaScript UI framework
  • Node.js: a server-side JavaScript run-time environment

This Code.Learn Full Stack JavaScript Academy program, designed in exclusive collaboration with Athens Tech College, provides an in-depth introduction to all aforementioned technologies, emphasizing how they are interfacing with each other in order for robust native full-stack Javascript applications to be developed. By the end of the academy, the participant will have acquired the knowledge and confidence to advance their career as a MEAN full-stack Javascript developer.
