I had just started learning the MERN stack and they deprecated it yesterday. Perfect timing, as usual.13
I hate, HATE MYSELF!! I am an awful developer. I am an awful person.
I am trying so hard. To be a better person. To be a better developer. But, as a person I am again finding it difficult to empathize. At work, I really want to explore MERN stack but that I have to do it out of working hours. And damn! work is too much, I don't get time.
I need to work on a new project, for 2 months the discussions with MILLION TEAMS ARE GOING ON!!! NOTHING!! NOBODY HAS ANY IDEA!! THEY MIGHT FIRE ME!! I AM STRESSED!!
IT'S 1AM HERE AND I AM WRITING UNIT TESTS!! I want to cry. I want a partner maybe who can support me or maybe it's my mood swings.34
I was MEAN developer and moved to MERN developer.
Angular very good framework BUT react + redux fucking awesome7
Baby asleep, headphones pumping, beer poured, ready to code my MERN stack application :-)......20mins later still on dev rant!!! :-(3
There are 2 node js apps floating around the city...built by me for intranet apps used in a logistics company.
I legit asked a friend if it has been replaced and he said no, that they keep on running like a fucking beast causing no issues whatsoever.
Fascinating. I was legit expecting it to crash a while ago.
Guess mern stacks do scale if you know what you is doing.
Write your unit tests people.2
No one will understand me but you Devs.
I am a self taught developer who works in a digital marketing agency, when I was learning to code I wanted that the code I will produce will help people and make me happy, the only job i got is in digital marketing agency, because no one in my country will recrute a self taught bald ugly mid thirty fucker, then want them young and fresh, anyway, I proved that I can handle the job, so that I became the only dev in the agency.
the problem is that I reached a that checkpoint where I have to choose a path:
- I learned Node and React but I can't use them in my agency
- I work with wordpress and prestashop but I don't code, I use fucking theme forest templates
the only way to work with MERN is through remote, but I am not a senior yet, I only have to keep learning PHP but I can't advance in my current job since the projects don't require coding, and I feel that my agency will close the dev department because they put me in the designers office.
I don't want to reach 40 with nothing in my portfolio but shitty theme forest template rape, the stress from my current situation is killing me, I can't even start working on my portfolio website and blog because I can't think straight, my mind jump from "today I will build an api" to "no I need to build a custom wordpress theme" each 3 minutes, I don't sleep, the futur is dark, I am afraid that if I focus on wordpress and shit I will miss working in interesting projects, and if I focus on MERN I will never gain experience localy to become a full remote later.
many will agree with me that PHP is shitty but gets the work done, and I hate PHP because of prestashop, and we only live once, the only other job I found require wordpress and fucking prestashop, imagine living a live doing something you don't like, then die regretting every decision you make.
I might sound crazy for you, but I don't have many friends and I am an introvert working with designers and community managers ... so this is the only place I can write what I want.
if you reached here, I thank you for your time4
Me to university: You taught us C++, java, DS Algo and PHP only right?
Me: So our college project must be around these only?
University: Yes... But No, here are your only options for our college project
1. MEAN/MERN Stack Website
2. Machine Learning
3. Data Science
5. Android App
So I have a question regarding what I should learn next. I am going to my 3rd year in college and you can say that I am sort of baby MERN stack developer. Baby because I don't have a lot of production/real world experience. Now I need to decide whether I want to continue to work with JS in web dev. Or should I go to some other language for web dev like . NET or python. Or should I start learning GraphQL, or Machine learning. I am quite interested in blockchain and devops also, but I need to make a decision and please give me advice as to what you think will help me in the future.
I know I am all over the place but that is literally my brain since last few weeks.
Thanks in advance, I'll do a ++ as a form of my thanks.14
Udemy courses are a fucking trap.
Bought one course on MERN stack by a youtuber I like, 10 minutes later I have 2019 filled with everything from web development to machine learning with sprinkles of flutter and react native in their as well
Side note - their 'sales' tactic is extremely slimy practice5
about six months ago i posted that i was accepted into and starting at a coding bootcamp. next week is the last week of curriculum for me before i can choose to be a teachers assistant or finish my capstone project and graduate!
some basic info about the course i took:
- 6 months (3 months web dev 2 months CS 1 month capstone project )
- starts by learning the MERN stack
- includes noSQL and SQL dbs
- transitions into C and then python for computer science
- includes basic security info
- lots and lots of algorithm practice
- lots of job readiness stuff (resume writing, linkedin, etc, but i havent done that yet)
- lots of portfolio-able projects throughout the schooling experience
- previous cohorts have something like 40% (after 1month) and 70% (after two) job placement rates (rough estimate)
let me know if anyone is curious about anything related and id be happy to answer what questions i can! :)6
Alright, fellow coders, I need your help this time <3
I was thinking about getting a full stack developer position after school, with mean/mern stack. (Yes, I love js, but you can hate me for that later)
So, I just got an offer for a front-end developer position that I didn't apply to but was recommended for by my full stack prof.
Everything is great about that company, but! I'm not sure I'm good for that!
My question is: does being a front-end developer mean being good at putting together nice looking website?
I'm good with angular, but suck at material or just CSS in general.
I can implement business logic, but anything more complex than grids causes my eye to twitch.
So, is front-end developer supposed to be good at design part of it or not?
Google says yes, but I got other opinions from my friends, but they are still students too!
All hope on you guys! Thank you8
There are lots of Angular and React jobs here in my area. Very few Vue jobs here (like 1 to 5 maximum job posts I have seen). I'm a PHP dev and it seems most companies are shifting to full stack JS development (MERN, MEAN, NodeJS + Express JS, etc.) along with some mobile development (ionic, cordova, etc)
I have no choice but to study both Angular and React. Supply and demand.
But between Angular and React, I prefer Angular.6
What's the best nodejs framework for the MEAN stack? I need to do additional things to put TypeScript in node js and express. I have seen nestjs with a good directory structure and also uses TS by default. How about meteor or Koa?
Should I just add TS to my existing node and express? Or use nestjs or some other nodejs framework. What do you suggest?3
Currently educating a developer friend ... who makes more than me... About MEAN, MERN, React Native 😖😞😟😕🙁😔1
I use to develop desktop programs in C++ with algos related with image processing and computer vision. However, new projects appear and one of them was for web using Drupal. It was my first experience with web and I am still having nightmares... It is the worst thing you can do. Continue a big project without the understanding of technology nor the framework... Now I am more experienced and I prefer stacks like MERN. Easy the debugging in web i so crucial... Maybe, I would have to swtich to webassembly.6
So I am making a real time chat app using MERN and socket.io but I was disappointed to discover that the newer version of socket.io ie 2.2.0 fails overtime on Chrome.
There is an issue open on the socket.io repo addressing this. Didn't they fucking test the code for Chrome before releasing a new update?8
So I'm looking for a tutorial somewhere to manage auth with react.
I have passport local setup with jwt in express, but looking to manage users in the front-end, managing the user state app wide, logging out, protected routes etc.
I've done some searching around but I can't see anything to concrete. Any pointers or articles would be great.
I was thinking of localStorage but not sure how to go about setting that up with react.3
Follow up on my internship:
>The recruiter told me to use whichever stack i prefer for the full stack development of their e-commerce website.
>I chose MERN stack.
>After completing the project 90% in 2 weeks, he wanted to host it on his shared hosting platform of godaddy.
> It doesnt have shell access nor allows node.js to install on it.
>Now he wants me to convert my node.js code to PHP using Dreamweaver software.... Shut up already. Give me my money and certificate and leave me the fuck alone.5
God knows how much I had to focus just to understand basic stuff. And then built my first project with react. This was the changing point for me, everything started coming all together. Believe me, I stared building react native projects within week.
I'm really happy to learn this stack. Starting tomorrow, I am starting a new project with user authentication and APIs. If anyone has any tips or suggestions for me then go ahead.1
Choosing between Mern stack and Mean Stack for a project. Maybe you guys can give me some input? Thx 😃1
So been doing a freelance project for the past week, small backend API with a front-end, thought I'll give react.js a shot and actually learn it (know a bit of the basics) so using MERN including tailwindcss.
Built the API in a few days, quick and easy. Down to react, not going to lie. Once you dive into it, it's really nice to use. Just tackled a contact form and a few dynamic pages using props, state etc today. Now onto the rest of the site including the the Dashboard to CRUD records.
Still have a lot to learn. But given what I've learned so far. Don't see it taking too much longer.
Famous last words though 😅
Got in a great company wherein I will be transformed from php to mean/mern stack. Improvise adapt overcome.
Will apply php best practices in the JS world.
After mean/mern, study react native or flutter. I like flutter but in my company there are only react native projects. Hhmm maybe because flutter is just new. Exciting future indeed 💪8
Hi do anyone has a formula or tips on working on two different freelance software projects at the same time?
Ps: both has same project time frame (1 month), different programming tools: ( Ruby on Rails), the other MERN stack...7
Does master degree really matter or if I take some courses will be better if I'll not go through academic life10
So in regards to my last post, built up the app some more all tested, working locally. Pushed to heroku, envs set, add-ons added only MongoLab and sendgrid. Go to test, 422 errors on POST requests and JSON parse errors.
Why? How? What? 😂4
So I've been tackling the Multer package with express and react, Christ what a nightmare so far. I can't get anything to work.
- Images as array string in mongoDB check
- enctype on the form, check
- state for the field set to an array, check
- type file check
- express configuration based on the Multer docs check
Everything as far as I can tell is as it should be, yet nothing gets saved.
I just got to college and can do web dev fairly well (Mern stack mostly). But tbh I am now more interested in being an app developer. Should I try to learn React Native/Flutter or Kotlin/Swift3
Should I go for freecodecamp or app academy open or some other free resource to learn full stack web development. Freecodecamp's explanations are starting to get over my head. App academy open seems great except they teach ruby on rails before teaching MERN stack and there are only three reviews on the internet I could find12
Has anyone here used app academy open. Is it good and does it teach useful and up to date stuff? I was thinking of doing it but there are barely any reviews online. There is a reddit thread about why it is handicapped but it is old and a user clarified it was misinformation. https://reddit.com/r/...
Their curriculum seems to be pretty good except that I will need to learn ruby on rails which I need to forget after the MERN stack part and that they teach docker compose instead of kubernetes
I need help structuring a new TypeScript project built on a MERN stack. I used CRA for the client, so I opted to have separate tsconfig files -- one for client (auto-generated by CRA) and one for server (extends node12 tsconfig). However, I'm trying to setup eslint and prettier globally so that the lint/style rules are uniform across the codebase. CRA adds an eslint config that extends react-app, which is fine, but I'd like to still have my global rules. I have written my eslintrc.json file and am happy with it, so I placed it in the project root directory. I figured I would install eslint, prettier, etc. in the project root, then when I run eslint globally, it would lint the server code with the global rules and the client code with the global rules and the react-scripts rules.
However, react-scripts complains that I've installed a newer version of eslint in a parent directory. I can either ignore that rule or use the same version as react-scripts, but it seems like react-scripts is going to run eslint on its own when I run npm start, regardless of if I have a global config. What should I do? Is there a better way to structure the app?1
I am using MERN to develop a poll app. I have 6 collections in my database. I have an API for each collection, 4 of those API returns the data whereas the other 2 return 'undefined'. What is the issue I am facing? Is MongoDB not allowing me to use more than 4 collections?6
I am comfortable in using the MERN stack, and i want to make some money out of it like freelancing and stuff. Is mern good for that use case? Or do i have to learn something like django / .net core? Because people here always say that mern sucks and its very slow.. pls help!!13
