  • My First Web Project

    Hey Coding Forum!

    Just a quick back drop on me: I've been System Engineering for a while now and I am making the transition to Software Engineering! I am stepping down to finish my BS in Computer Science and I am looking to dive in and start building my portfolio. I will start by building an artist (friend) a modern webpage using JavaScript. I have the majority of the front end covered and I am familiar with SQL and APIs as well.

    My question: When building the Web page I will need to tie it into a back-end server and database to maintain the data input on the page, forum, newsletter, etc. Can anyone point me where I learn to incorporate the the front-end into the back-end? This point seems fuzzy to me.

    I hope to become a healthy contributor asap, and do appreciate the guidance!

    There are hundreds of content management systems (CMS) already made which you can use. Check out Open Source Scripts - OpenSourceCMS (left side menu for demos) to compare and find the one you think fits best. You’d usually create HTML templates and incorporate the system’s required template codes to output whatever is stored in the database.

      VIPStephan,

      Wow, CMSs sure makes things easy! This can come in handy in the future.

      Though, I was looking for more on the programming side. I am starting to work with node.js, express.js framework and mongoDB. From the surface, it looks like this will enable me to produce the website fullstack while still challenging myself to learn as I go.

      I am still new, so feel free to correct me if I am at fault. Constructive criticism always welcomed

        You might want to do a search for 'MEAN stack' as there should be plenty of places with information available for helping with that particular combination.

        Don't forget to start your JavaScript code with "use strict"; which makes it easier to find errors in your code.

          Whenever I hear node.js, express.js, angular, and stuff like that I’m thinking of bloated, badly implemented, inaccessible websites. Don’t know why that is.
