What STACK is asked for? Or what are key frameworks or abilities to be familiar with?

The most popular JavaScript stacks are

  • MEAN stack

    • mongo db as database
    • express.js framework as backend
    • angular as frontend framework
    • node.js
  • MERN stack (equal to MEAN but uses react instead of angular

  • MEVN (uses vue as frontend)

One thing I have noticed on job boards is that some companies also expect developers to know SQL even if the job description mentions MongoDB as the database.

Thank you! I created a MERN project, and I like how it works. I’m trying to implement Apollo GraphQL, but the tutorial isn’t that great
