【LEAD】Full Stack Development in Javascript 101
(MEAN Stack Beginner Workshop)

Description
A decent startup product is built with good front-end, back-end and database. Gone are the days of coding in HTML, CSS, PHP and FTP upload. Now full stack developers are essential to startup & tech companies.

JavaScript is the No 1 Web language (Github, Stack Overflow).
From its humble beginning in 1995
to improve the interaction of a website, Javascript (NodeJS) is now widely used to develop scalable and lightweight backend web applications. Many startups & Unicorns are powered by NodeJS - Netflix, Paypal, Medium etc. Using one language for both front end & back end, the learning curve & coding experience is smooth.

This workshop is designed to help people who are interested in full stack/Mean Stack to learn about developing web applications in JavaScript.
