Also learning the MERN Stack. Am actually focusing on Frontend. I was really struggling to understand to connect front end app to the server. Fetching data from an API. That led me to learning the MERN stack. Everything just made sense to me how it all connects. Will definitely be doing more MERN stack projects

I was like that too don’t worry it’s all part of the learning process. I started off with frontend too and for years my knowledge in node was basic. But it’s actually quite simple when you realise that it’s just Javascript on the backend. Connecting the frontend to a mongodb database is also simple as is doing the CRUD requests. I will have a post tomorrow that shows how to create a simple MERN app with CRUD functionality.
