At Smashing Boxes, we encourage our developers to teach the rest of our team about trending technologies, innovative concepts, and new workflows that they are interested in or testing out. Twice a month, our developers all gather together at lunch to learn about a new topic, we called them Lunch and Learns (catchy right?). We wanted to show the world how awesome our developers and share their knowledge with you by making these Lunch and Learns G+ Hangouts on Air.
The embedded YouTube video contains Biko’s demonstration of the MEAN stack. Watch the video to learn more about the emerging workflow and if you have any questions for Biko, feel free to leave him a comment below.
ExpressJS is a web application framework that gives a lot of helpful components and modules for the common task associated with building a website.
NPM – Node Package Manager, used to download and install Node modules per project or globally
Bower – front-end package manager made by Twitter. Installs and manages versions for front-end libraries like Angular, jQuery and Bootstrap.
These are optional depending on your development process. Node has support for various compiled assets but in this demo they are being compiled by Grunt and served statically.
Stylus – compiles to CSS
Jade – compiles to HTML
