This month, we'll be showcasing a few MongoDB-powered applications that were built at hackathons and turned into full-fledged projects! If you have a hack you'd like to share let us know!
Ascot (http://ascotproject.com/) is an image-tagging tool that allows product information to be embedded in web images that runs on MongoDB and Node.js. In this talk, William Kelly and Val Karpov Valeri Karpov will go through the MEAN stack (MongoDB, Express.js, Angular.js and Node.js) and how they use MongoDB to power Acot.
A little bit about Ascot (http://ascotproject.com/). Affiliate links can be generated automatically, and both links and information tags remain tied to the image even as it is shared across multiple sites. This prevents sales from being lost due to customers not knowing what awesome products they are looking at. Ascot was originally built at AngelHack DC in November, and has since been launched commercially over at AscotProject.com (http://ascotproject.com/).
