About the Course

The acronym "MEAN" stands for "MongoDB ,Express.js AngularJS Node.js" and represents a group of technologies which are known to synergize well together. The major benefit of the MEAN stack is that it's extremely quick to prototype with. Node.js allows you to use Javascript on the backend as well as the frontend which can save you from having to learn a separate language.

Under the DigiNxt Program Series , NIIT is launching “Open Source Web Apps Development with MEAN Stack “- focused on imparting skills for Full Stack Development.

The program of Open Source Web Apps Development with MEAN Stack is meant for STEM Graduates and it is designed to produce industry ready candidates for placement.
