MeanStack Monday Vol. 1
Deals, Tips, and Tidbits
Ending Mondays on a good note
I decided to start publishing a little tidbit newsletter on Mondays with deals on web dev courses, tools, and software as well as other cool tutorials, tips and headlines that I can squeeze in before your Monday ends to make it a little less…. Monday
Get 98% off the Complete Angular Developer Certification Bundle - Holy shit, this one is a good deal. The course usually costs $2,000 and its only $39.99 for two more days. Get it while you can!
Try Sentry Business and Team packages for free - Sentry is an awesome error tracking and performance monitoring product that makes developing apps so much less stressful. Debugging is everyone’s least favorite thing to do - save yourself the headache and keep up with the health of your app from the front-end to the back-end.
Get 60% off for 6 months of FreshBooks - The ultimate accounting software for freelancers, developers, and small businesses. Get this deal while you can because FreshBooks really doesn’t have a sale this good very often (maybe a few times a year).
Follow the MeanStack Developer Newsletter for Free! - What a deal! You could always purchase a subscription and help me out though… I don’t expect it though. I really like writing this just subscribe for free unless you’re rich.
Tips & Tutorials
Web Dev Simplified - How To Build A Markdown Blog Using Node.js, Express, And MongoDB
Kyle from Web Dev Simplified is awesome at making things on the go and creating awesome tutorials. I did this one yesterday and create a cool little blogging app that I practiced writing my blog posts before I created my real blog.
I like how smooth he just talks through all of these complicated route functions and smoothly fixes any errors. I suggest many of his other videos as great learning resources as well. He even has a CSS battle against developer Kevin Powell which will make you really sad about your CSS skills. Oh and speaking of…
Kevin Powell - Learn CSS Grid the easy way
Flexbox and CSS Grid are the two topics that stick new devs when they are learning CSS. They suck at first - but then when you learn how to use them, you feel like a web developer God. This video helped me understand it quickly when I needed to use Grid for a project quickly. Kevin has a lot of awesome stuff and even has his own KP merch store.
Wes Bos - What the FlexBox?!
Wes makes it easy and fun though. What the FlexBox even helps you build some pretty killer site layout stuff - and the course is free! It’s probably my favorite CSS course because of the whistling! Wes also has an awesome podcast called Syntax.fm that is 100x more helpful than what I am writing.
I Earn $100 per Hour Writing on Medium - You Can Too. - Twan Mulder, Medium

Thanks for reading - look out for Issue III on Friday!
Well I hope to get better at making this a more visually appealing Monday Madness Newsletter type thing, but I wanted to make sure I got this out before it was Tuesday. Thanks for reading! If you enjoyed this newsletter, subscribe and then share with five of your friends who would also like this. Oh, you can also catch my brand new blog at andrewweisbeck.blog and it is also linked to my personal website. It is such a cool app that I made thanks to Kevin Powell.
