First Steps With Node.js
I’ve also wanted to get my head around a couple of the NoSQL databases. While the relational model is very often applicable, there are plenty of use cases where it isn’t the best choice, especially for simple data, and MongoDB seemed to be an interesting alternative. So, I decided to have a tinker around with Node.js and Backbone today, and wound up building a real-time guestbook application. Let me know what you think, but please be gentle - this is my first ever Node.js or MongoDB application.
