Learn C and C++

C and C++:

The major difference between C and C++ is that C is a procedural programming language and does not support classes and objects, while C++ is a combination of both procedural and object oriented programming language; therefore C++ can be called a hybrid language.

C:

C was developed by Dennis Ritchie between 1969 and 1973 at AT&T Bell Labs. When compared to C++, C is a subset of C++. C supports procedural programming paradigm for code development. In C (because it is a procedural programming language), data and functions are separate and free entities.

Full (MEAN) Stack Developer Tutorials

Full Stack Development:

The term full-stack means developers who are comfortable working with both back-end and front-end technologies. To be more specific, it means that the developer can work with databases, PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript and everything in between, also, venturing as far as converting Photoshop designs to front-end code. (Ref.: https://www.sitepoint.com/full-stack-developer/)


MEAN Stack:

MEAN is a framework for an easy starting point with MongoDB, Node.js, Express, and AngularJS based applications. It is designed to give you a quick and organized way to start developing MEAN based web apps with useful modules like Mongoose and Passport pre-bundled and configured. We mainly try to take care of the connection points between existing popular frameworks and solve common integration problems. (Ref.: http://learn.mean.io/)
