Building a MEAN Application Course

This is one I'm really looking forward to.

Building a To-do application, which I presume is in the mould of the one in Angular Basics and the Interactive Web Pages with JavaScript course but with the functionality I always felt was missing.

That is interacting with a Database so that when you leave the application you get the same settings and tasks showing as you left it making it a fully dynamic and usable app?

Would that be the case?

Yes, that is my understanding. As you know the MEAN stack utilizes the MongoDB database and I'm sure that the MEAN course will be implementing that, likely through the Mongoose ODM, which is rather popular in MEAN development.

Happy coding,

You can also hook up firebase to angular. It's cloud service offered by google. It's another nosql service.


But you still need strong understanding of javascript OOP to understand why you do things in angular.
