I love how easy it is to iterate and work with document-based stores like MongoDB. It made launching a redundant cloud experience for my mobile app super easy. Node rocks!
I run an AWS/EC2-backed set of Node applications, both for processing push notifications & user requests, communicating with MongoDB... in my professional life, I run the open source SDK team on Windows Azure that's responsible for shipping our consistent Azure SDK on PHP, Node.js, Java, etc.
Professional: I'm a Software Development Lead at Microsoft on the Windows Azure open source SDK team. App Development: In my spare time, I run 4th & Mayor, a simple, fun, popular Foursquare app for Windows Phone.
