MEAN is an abbreviation for:
Now, we are traditionally skeptical about almost every tool that stack uses, and bluntly speaking, using only MongoDB for now. The reason behind it is the commitment to our customers for stability, reliability and scalability (all of which will be tested by time). However, as avid fans and passionate supporters of FOSS, we should admit that this is possibly the best thing that we’ve seen after the LAMP stack.
I’m not talking about the possible future popularity of MEAN, neither am I harping on its usefulness, but the sheer synergy that its components bring to life.
Traditionally, developers have been struggling with staging and pushing their code to production to such an extent, that DevOps was born (and is now even considered a threat to developers). Here be Docker, the beautiful and user-friendly reincarnation of LXC.
In short, sure, MEAN is a thing, and we at Code Runners are looking forward to its flourishing. The synergy is there, it looks promising and we can’t wait to see how the community embraces it.
