Seasoned devs as well as those new to node can utilize MEAN! The MEAN stack is a boilerplate that serves as the ideal beginning for MongoDB, Express, AngularJS, and Node.js based applications.

DigitalOcean’s Cloud servers start at $5 per month. That gives you a 20 GB SSD server with 512 MB of RAM. If you wish to sign and up and take MEAN for s spin, sign up with my referral link.
