How to become a MEAN developer?

MEAN, short for MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js, is a full-stack software bundle. It uses JavaScript frameworks for front-end, back-end tools as well as for libraries. The database is a document-driven NoSQL database. Thus, MEAN stack is a full-stack tool for web development. It enables you to develop websites that are fast and efficient and supports dynamic websites.

MEAN stack is a collection of technologies that can be used to build a full-stack application. Its scalability makes it popular among developers, and the fact that it uses JavaScript makes it an ideal platform for developers who prefer to use the language.

What is the scope in MEAN development?

The MEAN family of technologies is a popular and easy-to-use interface for developing dynamic applications and websites. It assists you in developing a simple, flexible, and open-source solution that can be highly profitable. It's no surprise that MEAN stack developers are in high demand and will continue to be so.

Being a Mean stack developer is a highly sought-after and challenging job. So, if you're willing to work on a diverse skill set and have experience with various code languages and applications, you'll be a successful MEAN stack developer.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a MEAN developer?

A Mean Stack Developer is usually a JavaScript-based application programmer who works on the MEAN stack. MEAN stack developers work on both the backend and front end of the application, which are all JavaScript based. A Mean Stack Developer must have in-depth knowledge of JavaScript.
Mean stack developers are Javascript-proficient web developers who use HTML, CSS, and Javascript to handle front-end operations and back-end server scripting. They are also referred to as "full-stack" web developers because they are in charge of all aspects of the application. The MongoDB database does not use javascript, but rather commands similar to javascript. As a result, MEAN stack developers are often referred to as full-stack Javascript web developers.
A MEAN developer handles the following responsibilities:

  • Create, evaluate, and deploy scalable web applications
  • Create and manage fully functional, large relational and non-relational databases
  • Identify and correct bottlenecks in the application
  • Create user interfaces and interactive code modules
  • Develop UI components that are mobile-first and interactive
  • Support the development of scalable RESTful APIs
  • Take peer reviews and make suggestions for improvements
  • Present comprehensive product designs and roadmaps to peers and top-level stakeholders
  • Identify and implement novel approaches to simplify complex design challenges
  • Co - operate with product management and engineering teams to architect and deploy products
  • Develop and promote design best practices throughout the organization.

How to become a MEAN developer?

It all boils down to your specific needs. The first step is to assess your current position in your career as well as the industry. Sort yourself into a category based on your credentials and experience. This will assist you in developing a realistic timeline as you work toward your goal of becoming a successful MEAN developer.

Your previous experience and educational qualifications can help you make a successful transition. If you have advanced technical experience, you will find the transition easy. If you are skilled in both front-end and back-end development, the process will be easy for you. But if you have never been a MEAN developer and do not have any background in software development, the process of learning to code will present challenges for you. Enroll in online courses or bootcamps to learn necessary programming skills.

Next, let us see the skills and methods to master in order to become a successful MEAN developer:

Skills required to become a MEAN developer

Here are the fundamental skills you need to learn:

1. MongoDB

MongoDB is an open-source, cross-platform database that includes a key-value pair data type with support for binary data such as JSON. It also features a document-oriented NoSQL DBMS, making it ideal for applications requiring large tables of data with millions of records. It's also easier to add fields to MongoDB than to update the entire table, and developers create web applications using only JavaScript.

2. Express.JS

Express is a lightweight, flexible, and mature framework for building web applications. It provides support for both single-page applications (SPAs) and traditional web applications and is designed to work in both environments. This framework uses the Pug engine to provide support for templates while also drawing inspiration from Sinatra, a popular Ruby framework.

3. Angular JS

AngularJS is an open-source JavaScript framework maintained by Google that aims to introduce MVC architecture into browser-based applications and make development and testing easier. The framework helps you create a smarter web application with support for personalization, and it allows you to extend the syntax of HTML to express the components of your application. Angular features such as dependency injection and data binding can eliminate plenty of code that you need to write.

4. Node JS

Node.js is a software application that allows developers to create web servers and build web applications on it. The server-side JavaScript execution environment uses a non-blocking and event-driven I/O model, which makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices. With its ability to run on multiple platforms, Node.js has become the go-to application for running real-time applications that handle large amounts of data.

5. JavaScript

JavaScript is a scripting language used primarily in web development that enables dynamic, real-time content and multimedia, as well as control of the browsing experience. It's described as a scripting language because code can be written right into HTML and executed at run-time without any prior compilation. JavaScript code is also object-oriented, which means front-end developers can create objects that can be manipulated.

6. C++

C++ is a general-purpose, free-form programming language designed with an orientation towards large systems and resource-constrained software. C++ can be used to develop operating systems and applications. Variables in C++ are strongly typed, which means they will only accept data of a specific type. The biggest advantage of C++ is that it is scalable and gives developers a lot of control over how their applications are using resources.

How to get remote MEAN developer jobs?

MEAN developers are a lot like athletes. To excel at their craft, they practice effectively and consistently. They also need to work hard enough that their skills grow gradually over time. In that regard, there are two major factors that MEAN developers must focus on in order for that progress to happen: the support of someone who is more experienced and effective in practice techniques while you're practicing. As a developer, it's vital for you to know how much to practice - so make sure there is someone on hand who will help you out and keep an eye out for any signs of burnout!
