MEAN stands for…
But what if you use a relational database instead of MongoDB? Or Hapi or Koa instead of Express? Or Backbone or Vue on the Frontend? Those acronyms certainly don’t roll off the tongue.
If the above sounds silly, it is. A little bit, anyway. But now that I’ve got your attention, I’d like to make the following observations:
- Software stacks are only top level descriptors of the technologies involved. Are you using anything else, like Redux? Sockets? Mongoose?I’ve used some of these technologies in critical parts of my applications, but you wouldn’t know it from a simple acronym.
Anyway, I realize it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I’m job searching, and that has to take priority. I am working on a post about the renewed life of standalone, ‘native’ desktop applications, and what this revival can tell us about the lifecycle of technologies. That post is taking me a lot longer than I thought.
