Welcome to the first tutorial in the Works-Like-A-Charm series - the goal of this course is to enable you to get a better understanding of the End-to-End FullStack puzzle.
The course is short and concise, and is more about architecture than about code. You will learn how to make it happen using an Ionic/Angular Frontend & Parse/Redis/MongoDB on NodeJS/Express Backend, and you will discover the benefits that can be gained with this technology stack: One code base - for both Frontend and Backend; The Power of RxJS - to enable realtime, live, responsive data; The Power of Memory Caching - a simple technique that you can implement on your own; Take Control - create a viable alternative from dependency on cloud-only solutions like Firebase.
- A basic understanding of NodeJS and the role it plays in the backend server
- A basic understanding of NoSQL and some exposure to a NoSQL database such as MongoDB
- Access to a workstation and server. If not, you can create your own (Lecture 3: "Setting up the workstation and server").
