I asked a question over at the CDO-ITG FB page a couple of weeks ago what would the community like to read or do over the summer. I had a couple of options for Java, Node and Python. The overall winner though was nodejs. So for the summer I'm doing a MEAN tutorial to build an old app that a couple of guys "brainstormed" about a year back named Dormmetita. Right, +Romar Mayer Micabalo, +Paul Michael Labis, +Raven Duran?
Technically it's "Dorm me, tita." which is an app to find and post dorm rooms, apartments for students localized to my city, Cagayan de Oro which is a university town. We might throw in reviews but let's keep it simple for now. We can make up stuff as we go.
I've broken down the tutorial in these topics:
- Setting up
- Node is up: hello world
- Coding the REST services (Part 1) - The Model
- Finish the REST (Part 2) with Fiddler debugging and testing
- Bootstrapping the view parts
- Add Angular to the page
- Deploy to Azure, because free is nice
So bookmark this post to follow.
