They say the best technology works flawlessly in the background and in the age of connected devices and the cloud, this couldn't be more true. In this Deep Dive, we will talk about the node/nosql architecture we used in developing two social games and the challenges we faced, including scalability, controlling costs, latency & security.

What are the differences between node, mongo, and redis? Which plugins, frameworks, and modules should you use? How do you deal with data loss, debugging, and recovery? This (and more) will all be answered.
