The initial logo concept was created by Austin Anderson for the original MEAN stack LinkedIn group, and is an assembly of each first letter of the MEAN acronym. [3]

Frameworks[edit]

The original creator of the MEAN stack framework is Amos Haviv, who worked with Linnovate, to provide an open source MEAN stack framework, which evolved to MEAN.io today, one of the most used MEAN stack frameworks is the one created by linnovate : mean.io. which is an opinionated fullstack javascript framework which simplifies and accelerates web application development.[4] After MEAN.io's creation, Amos Haviv has parted from Linnovate, which he tells about it in his blog, and continued to fork MEAN.JS as a community collaborated MEAN framework project.[5] [6]
