    Many thanks to the presenters last night, always hard being in the spotlight ;-)

    Perhaps for the next time there is a "Backend Development" chat we could formalize the presentations it a bit? Say a couple of lines for each of the following:

    * What is your problem (business or project wise)
    * Constraints (We're a financial .NET shop, needs to work on GAE, must be "Free" (as in beer), needs to be able to integrate into X, etc)
    * Passed on solutions/stacks due to the points above (Would have loved to run X, but had to pass due to Y)
    * Solution/stack you went with and why (out of the 100,000 out there). More so if you 'rolled your own' (given the existing 100K).
    * Advantages of the solution
    * Unrealized side benefits (Backbone.js + Node.js + MongoDB = "Full stack language" (i.e. we only have to deal with JavaScript, making code reviews easier, etc))
    * Disadvantages of the solution
    * If you were to do it again, what would you do differently.

    Or something like that.

      (Sorry, ran out of space). Lots of great solutions presented, but I felt that the first three above were missing and are important (as perhaps I have the same problem/constraints/etc)­.
