Congratulations! You’re getting started with full-stack JS development

pugCongratulations! By coming to this blog, you have found a dedicated resource for instruction, venting, and submitting suggestions on the topic of full-stack JS development. Ok, maybe the pug is not so excited, but I thought he was cute. Perhaps this post will brighten his day.

There are a lot of resources on the internet with this information such as videos, blogs, learning sites, books and code. What I am doing is trying to bring all of that knowledge together into one site. I started by writing two books on the topic, and this blog will take off from where the books left off. I have a huge backlog of topics that I will be getting to. Each will be highly relevant to the topic and will be aimed at helping you be successful with your development.

You will find that the books take a specific implementation path, one using Microsoft Azure and the other using Amazon Web Services. The blog will mostly be agnostic to hosting technologies, but will try and be fair and pick out the best solutions where they exist.

What frameworks will be used?

This blog will present the technologies and engineering best practices that span across all of the layers of a full-stack JavaScript software development architecture. The core of this blog will be focusing on specific JavaScript frameworks used to implement each layer based on the MEAN stack. This means Node.js and Express for the Service layer, MongoDB/DocumentDB and other NoSQL flavors for the data layer and Angular for the presentation layer. As shifts happen, I will bring in other technologies, such as to include React, or whatever else comes along in any layer.

We will also investigate a lot of other tools that work alongside our layer technologies. Along the way, you will learn best practices in architecting, testing, securing, deploying and monitoring an enterprise application in the cloud.

Let’s get started!

Here is a really great quote that represents how I have approached my innovative development work. Let’s all follow this advice and push beyond the limits of what we thought possible with full-stack JavaScript!

“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.”
– Arthur C. Clarke
