The MERN stack is a popular way to make a full stack web app. MERN stands for MongoDB, Express, React, and Node.js. In this talk, you will first get an overview of the MERN stack. Then you will learn how to refactor a MERN stack app to make the backend completely serverless. The new backend will use MongoDB Realm instead of Express and Node. Not only can you host your backend on Atlas App Services (formally called MongoDB Realm), you can also host your React frontend there as well. And for small projects, this is all completely free. Bring a laptop if you want to follow along yourself.


You should have basic knowledge of HTML and JavaScript.
