In this world, the procedure of web development is significantly different. Open source web applications have surfaced in order to ease the task of the programmer and help them with libraries, web servers, database system and front-end frameworks. Nowadays, developers are implementing the technologies in such a way that they are more faster and operative web technologies. Over the past few years, with the development of more and more sophisticated and open sources technologies, such applications have experienced a futuristic makeover.

MEAN stack referes to a collection of JavaScript-based technologies used to develop web applications. JavaScript is a dynamic programming language for client-side and server-side web application development. It runs on every level of the application which gives an efficient and modern approach to the web development. MEAN stack does not require a software of its own, it all needs its own web browser for executing a web page or an application. It is a technology built with the best composition of technological mediums. MEAN is an acronym for Mongo DB, Express JS, Angular JS and Node.js. From client to server to database, MEAN is full stack JavaScript.

Mongo DB is a document-oriented database, which is cross-platform and has high performance. It is a schema-less NoSQL database system. Mango DB saves data in binary JSON format which makes it easier to pass data between client and server.

Express JS is lightweight framework used to build web applications in Node and supports MVC Architecture with a little bit of work. It provides many robust features for building single and multi-page web applications. Express is inspired by the popular Ruby framework, Sinatra.

Angular JS is a JavaScript framework developed by Google. It provides some awesome features like two-way data binding. It is a complete solution for rapid and awesome front-end development. This makes programming applications with MEAN stack very effective.

Node.js is a server-side JavaScript execution environment. It is fast in code execution, runs on various platforms and is a platform built on Google Chrome's V8 JavaScript runtime. It helps in building highly scalable real-time applications and concurrent applications rapidly. It can use JavaScript as both front-end and back-end languages.

MEAN Stack offers a modern and effective approach to web development. It can be installed in two ways using the mean.io website and using various Yeoman generators. It is good investment for building fast, strong and scalable applications. It is catching up with the other tech stocks in the market and has already made its mark in the development community. Many companies like PayPal, LinkedIn, Netflix use MEAN stack for their development.
