I am the part of THE HACKING SCHOOL offline batch at Feb 2021. What I learned about MERN stack is quite captivating, so just thought to share with you guys.

MERN is a opensource JavaScript stack which allow us to create a full fledged web application from scratch. It uses four opensource technologies MongoDB(M), Express(E), React (R) and Node.js (N). Lets look up on these technologies in order to get a better grip on the MERN stack.
