I spent one year developing a project management web application in order to gain a better understanding of the software engineering process. The software was built on a technology stack of MongoDB, ExpressJS, AngularJS, and Node.js which is more commonly referred to as the MEAN stack. The experience has exposed me to a new set of tools, software practices, and engineering principles that have left me with a deeper understanding of what it means to be a software engineer and the incredible amount of time and work that is involved in designing and implementing a full-scale software application.
