As someone who has trudged through many tutorials on the MEAN development stack, I’ve built many demo applications using some variation of
localhost. Yet, when time came for me to move onto real-world deployments, I had a muchtougher time finding guides straightforward enough to follow.
In an effort to help future versions of myself, I’ll be releasing a two-part tutorial that demonstrates the process of deploying a MEAN application live onto Amazon’s EC2.
- Part I: Getting Started and Deploying your Initial Application
- Part II: Utilizing your EC2 Instance of Mongodb
In this first part, we’ll be taking an existing MEAN application and deploying it onto an EC2 instance with its own live URL.
