Why are you interested in NodeJS?

No answer yet

Have you built anything using node?

I've built a couple npm modules, one of which is an API consumer for the BoxCar service, and the other is dynamic logging for EventEmitters. I've also created a high performance adserver that we use in production at SimpleReach.

What other languages and platforms do you develop with?

I started in the Microsoft stack in '96 with ASP. I moved up the stack using .NET and SQL Server, about the time .NET 3.5 was coming out, Rails was maturing so I started with that. I then made the leap to move to NYC from San Diego in Feb of 2010 and started with Node.JS a few months later.


I work in the adtech space making high performance systems to handle the every day problems with serving ads at scale.
